Hasselt’s Christmas tree may be missing it’s greenery, but it makes up for it in glittering dinner party style.
The 'Taste Tree', which measures 9-m high and 6-m wide, consists of 5,000 white, blue and gold porcelain plates and cups donated by locals.
The design was inspired by the spare plates and cups the designers, Inge Vanluyd and Stefan Vanbergen, noticed hanging around the house. For the tree, they asked Hasselt’s citizens to contribute their ‘odd’ crockery.
‘We decorated the tree with objects which would otherwise have remained invisible,’ the designers say.
If you feel like a visit to Hasselt, you have until 6 January to see the tree in the city’s main square.
