Kitsch Fix #65: Wild Christmas

Wild Christmas ornaments at Pea Soup Andersen’s in Buellton, CA

Here’s a bonus kitsch fix to kick off the holidays. I spotted these animal-print ornaments and bedazzled Santa hats at Pea Soup Andersen’s back in August, and it took all my self-restraint to hold off on sharing them until now. As if it isn’t enough that Pea Soup Andersen’s devotes an entire room of their gift shop to Christmas items year-round, they also happen to feature an entire tree that is decked in jungle-themed ornaments. Throw in the towering stack of rhinestone-adorned Santa hats perched next to this wild tree, and we now have a crystal-clear image of what Cruella de Vil’s Christmas parties look like…

“Party Animal” ornament alongside zebra-print galoshes and bath tubs

What Christmas would be complete without a blinged-out Santa hat?

“Grr Baby” glass ornament alongside fuzzy slippers (look closely and you’ll also spot a zebra-print hair dryer and pink hair brush)

Psst: Something about animal-print Christmas decor just makes me smile, as you can see in this ‘vintage’ post. Are there any kitschy decorations that have been delighting or appalling you this season? Do tell! Leave a comment.
