Celebrating Christmas Miami Style

During our 8 hour flight delay (American had to reschedule us due to a bag check delay that was their fault) we drove around Miami taking in the holiday scenery and soaking up the warm sun. While driving around Coral Gables, we spotted these South Florida-inspired festive decorations. I couldn't help but be amused by the decorations and wanted to share them with you.

This wreath is pretty ordinary, but the holiday bells are made from Miami's native "golden" coconuts.

The eight tiny reindeer plus Rudolph above are made from palm fronds.

Mr. Peacock here was also taking a stroll to look at Christmas decorations. I am still in shock when I see a wild peacock wandering the streets of Miami. He is beautiful!

After this adventure, we made it back to the airport and are finally settled in to my parents house in Houston. Happy Christmas Eve!

Is that you that made the Palm frond reindeer, or Reid's mom? That is a great idea! Have a fab time and talk next year! (Jeroen will be in Miami on the 4th)
