Nicole Polizzi shared a breathtaking photo of her Christmas tree, noting that she was “finally” able to decorate her home for her most favorite holiday of all. The former Jersey Shore: Family Vacation star followed her exclamation with a Santa, fire, and reindeer emoji.
The impressive fir appeared to dwarf the entranceway in the northern New Jersey home Nicole resides in with her husband Jionni LaValle and their children — Lorenzo, Giovanna, and Angelo. The photo’s display of holiday cheer delighted her 13.7 million social media followers.
The tree was lit with hundreds of twinkling lights. Several “legs,” which were decorated with red-and-white striped socks and red curved shoes, stuck out of the evergreen as if elves were caught within its branches. The massive tree almost reached the landing of the staircase that led to the upstairs area of the reality star’s home.
Underneath the large decoration, a red striped skirt with pom-poms along its trim held a series of three large boxes, which were wrapped in paper that matched the colors in the skirt. Also seen underneath the holiday tree was a figurine of the animated character Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.
Seated next to the reindeer was Nicole, who cuddled an old-fashioned Santa Claus figure. Next to Santa’s left foot, a brown bag of gifts was visible. In his right hand, Santa held a wooden crest with the letter L inside a circle. The monogram is for the family’s last name.
The stairwell that led to the upstairs area of the family’s abode featured dark wood steps. Over them was a brightly patterned runner. Wrought iron spindles gave the area a luxurious look. To the left of the stairs was an entranceway to another room.
Behind the tree, a dark wood table held photos and a large, crystal light fixture, and white wainscoting covered the lower half of the wall.
Fans of the former MTV star appeared to be as excited as Nicole to welcome the Christmas season.
“Love it!!! Mine is Barbie-themed,” wrote one fan.
“I’m putting mine up in a week’s time too. We need some joy around here after the way this year has planned out,” noted a second follower.
“With how crazy this year has been I say do whatever makes you and your kids happy. Looks great,” penned a third Instagram user.
“After the year we’ve had we need a little cheer…. you go girl!” added a fourth fan.
