A big part our job at Clever is finding the most innovative and beautiful designs that make living smarter, more interesting, or simplified. Sometimes, though, we just want to look for weird stuff out in the world. Since it's the holidays, it's time for digging into over-the-top holiday decorations! While most of it might raise your electricity bill too much to want to copy, most of it is highly entertaining—a great moment of relief in this
stressful jolly time of year. From fruit-themed trees to absurdly large menorahs, in offices and mansions, here we're giving you a moment of lightness with the most delightful over-the-top holiday decor we could find.
1. Ornament overload
Now that's a tree! Apparently, this tree stayed up year-round—and we understand why.
2. Grinch galore
This theme is a little terrifying, but that doesn't mean it's not creative.
3. All lit up
Do you ever wonder how long it takes to put up and take down a display like this?
4. True blue
We're not sure if this is a Hanukkah bush or a Christmas tree, but we appreciate the strong aesthetic either way.
We think this might just be a shrine to Santa Claus.
6. Laser party
For a simple and statement-making look, go for menorah lasers.

This decorating strategy looks like a tripping hazard, and it's kind of tripping us out.

For when the force is with you.
10. So. Many. Baubles.

11. Festive desk
Bring the holiday spirit to work with a little craft paper and a lot of time.
12. Tropical tree
If you're wanting to keep your decor up long past the holidays, why not dress your tree up like some fruit?
13. Trimmings to the max
You can probably smell this front walk through your screen.
14. But make it fashion
Would you prefer this look in fir or faux fir?
15. Kitschy delight
Particularly helpful if you live somewhere gray and gloomy: Add an explosion of color to your holiday decorating plan.
16. Candyland cuteness
If you have a sweet tooth, here's a sugary array of ornaments.
17. Florida winter
Warm weather is no excuse for a lackluster Christmas display, especially when you can get some flamingos in on the fun.
18. Here We Come A-Caroling
How many lyrics can you spot in this scene?
19. Ultra inflatable
Why have one lawn inflatable when you can fill every inch of your yard?
