With the Olympics over, schools back and frost on your car in the morning, it is impossible to deny that summer has come to an end. We know it may only be the start of October but for many organisations, Christmas preparations are already underway.  

Organising Christmas can be a stressful and demanding process for organisations. Juggling the demands of the festive period preparations, alongside day-to-day duties  is challenging. Thankfully, the whole preparation process can be much easier if you plan ahead of time.  To help you get started and to provide you with some inspiration, we have put together a selection of quite extraordinary Christmas trees from around the world.

The Lego® Christmas Tree 
Standing 38-feet tall and designed with an impressive 600,000 bricks, the faux-fir Lego® Christmas tree in London’s St. Pancras Station took two months of off-site assembly and two weeks of night-time work to install. Each of the tree’s 172 Lego® branches and 1,200 Lego® ornaments were assembled by hand by a team of just two people. …..now that’s what we call team work.

Mount Ingino Christmas Tree
In 1981, the people of Gubbio, a town in Italy, designed a lighting display that has become an annual tradition. One of the world’s largest Christmas tree displays rises up the slopes of Monte Ingino. Composed of about 500 lights connected by 40,000 feet of wire, the ‘tree’ is a modern spectacle for an ancient city. We’re not sure you would fit this in your receptions area though!

Venice ‘s Murano Island:
Renowned throughout the world for its quality glasswork, Murano Island is home to the tallest glass tree in the world. Sculpted by master glass blower Simone Cenedese, the artistic Christmas tree is a modern reflection of the festive season.

Whether you are organising the Christmas decorations for your office, shopping centre or hotel, think outside the box and plan a magnificent Christmas display this year.
