Bright Parols to Illuminate Your Entryway
Start by adorning your entryway with colorful parols. These star-shaped lanterns are iconic in Filipino culture, symbolizing hope and light during the holiday season. Hang them by your door or windows to welcome guests with a touch of Filipino charm.
Vibrant Belens for a Meaningful Centerpiece
Set up a Belen, a Filipino nativity scene, as a centerpiece in your home. These displays depict the birth of Jesus Christ and are often beautifully crafted, representing the heart of Christmas for many Filipino families. Position it prominently to create a focal point for the festivities.
Cheerful Filipino Christmas Ornaments
Deck your Christmas tree with ornaments that celebrate Filipino culture. Look for miniature jeepneys, tiny bamboo parols, or capiz shell decorations. These indigenous elements add a unique Filipino flair to your tree, making it a delightful sight for all.
Filipino-Inspired Table Settings
Elevate your dining experience with Filipino-inspired table settings. Use “buri” placemats or “banig” (woven mats) as a base for your table decor. Incorporate native table runners or napkins with intricate patterns to bring Filipino craftsmanship to your dining area.
Poinsettias and Local Flora
Embrace local flora in your decorations by incorporating Poinsettias, known as “Flores de Pasko” in the Philippines. These vibrant red blooms symbolize the festive season and add a pop of color to your home.
Let these festive adornments envelop your space, making this holiday season truly special for you and your loved ones.
