A Caribbean Christmas Tree Made From Bamboo

Oh, Christmas tree!
We’re merry impressed with this inventive Caribbean riff on the traditional fir tree in the lobby of the Hyatt Regency Trinidad in Port-Of-Spain.
The show-stopping, 20-foot-tall bamboo-inspired Christmas creation is the work of avant-garde local designer, Brian MacFarlane. It’s a masterpiece of overlapping bamboo pieces that are affixed to an underlying metal frame and crowned with star that almost touches the ceiling.
Here’s hoping there’ll be some fittingly Caribbean-inspired presents underneath it on Christmas morning!
