Christmas is just a few weeks away and hotels and resorts have started decoration for the festive season. One such resort is the 5-star Kempinski Hotel Bahia in Marbella, Spain which is showcasing the world’s most expensive Christmas tree. Valued at staggering £11.9million ($15.4 million), the Christmas tree is designed by UK-based fashion designer and cake artist Debbie Wingham. The tree is on display at the lobby of the hotel and was unveiled by the designer along with the GM of the hotel.
The 19 feet fir tree is decorated with gems, diamonds, sapphires, precious stones and edible treats. The most expensive item on the Christmas tree is an £8.9million emu egg shell finished in red diamond dust. Besides that, it is garnished with ostrich eggs, hand sculpted ornaments, resin art bags, blown glass, mosaic masterpieces and 3D printed chocolates.
Debbie herself made around 500 ornaments and also got help from artists like Gary James McQueen, David Arnott Mosaics and Debra Franses Bean. Every branch is embellished with flawlessly cut and ethically sourced pink diamonds, sapphires and red, black and white diamonds. Also, there are 24 carat gold bills that come with a 3 carat diamond and a 24 carat gold chain too. Moreover, upcycled jewellery from the renowned luxury brands such as Bvlgari, Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels and Chanel is also used for decorating the tree.
The most expensive Christmas tree by Debbie Wingham will surely be a treat to watch at the Kempinski Hotel Bahia. So, if you happens to be somewhere in southern coast of Spain during Christmas Eve, do visit this beautiful resort and also enjoy the sight of this $15.4 million Christmas tree.
Debbie Wingham who is referred as the world’s most expensive designer has also designed the world’s most expensive dress worth £3.5 million and world’s most expensive shoes costing £11.4 million in the past.
