Festive And Stylish: See The Most Beautifully Decorated Trees Of Christmases Past

A pine-scented home, the ornament-clad tree, intertwined twinkle lights, parols, and elegant wreaths to welcome guests and the best puto bumbong, ensaimada, and tsokolate to warm the tummy are just a few things one can expect when visiting friends this time of the year.

From fine décor to the delectable dishes served, one things is certain—it’s all in the details! Take a peek at the beautifully decorated trees of these holiday hostesses and inspirational ladies from Christmases past.


Audrey Tan-Zubiri

The Zubiris’ towering Christmas tree is the home’s focal point. Adorned with ornaments in the classic red, green, and gold, the tree also has trinkets that the family has collected from their travels all over the world. “It adds character to the tree,” says Audrey.



Juana Manahan-Yupangcpo

Christmas tree decorating day is a family affair, and Juana’s tree ends up bottom heavy with decorations because her kids join in on the fun and can only put pieces as they are tall.



Ayen Munji-Laurel

The majestic Christmas tree from Designer Blooms was designed by their in-house artist Myrna. The red, gold, and green ornaments used in the tree have been collected through the years and are updated every Christmas time.



Tweetie de Leon-Gonzalez

The Christmas tree from Florasilk is adorned with red and gold ornaments accumulated through the years and is elegantly displayed in the living room.



Marielle Santos-Po

The tree has been around since Marielle and her husband first got married. She wanted to skip the red and the gold and go for something modern looking, hence the green, white, and silver. She bought the accessories from the States and from Florasilk before the shop closed down. The singing and moving snowmen, she bought for her kids. She enthuses that they double as toys.



Ana Rocha

The all-white home of Ana makes for the ideal backdrop for the explosion of exuberant colors that define her Christmas tree.



Alex Eduque

Alex is very hands-on when it comes to decorating the family home—from conceptualizing, rummaging through their bodega for any recyclable items, and adding unique touches, like stuffed toys from Pottery Barn that infuse a classic theme with a whimsical feel.



Tina Lagdameo

The color scheme of the tree is silver, hold, and white, translated seamlessly from Lagdameo’s elegant table setting to the Christmas tree she bought from Neiman Marcus in New York.
