When it comes to Christmas decor, Bethenny Frankel always goes big and bold. Year after year, she breaks out unique pieces like a life-size nutcracker statue, neon-pink Christmas tree, and massive festive inflatables.

2021 is no exception. In a November 21 Instagram Story photo, The Real Housewives of New York City alum shared a peek at how she decorated her vibrant tree this year. In addition to a variety of fun ornaments and ribbons, there was a slightly unexpected "finishing touch" at the top: The Nightmare Before Christmas character Jack Skellington disguised as Santa Claus.

The nod to the animated classic's "pumpkin king" is fitting, considering Bethenny also tends to go all out on Halloween decor each year. In 2020, she proudly showed off the bedazzled skulls, decorative pumpkins, and toy rotary phone she had set up for the occasion. The year prior, she shared videos of a creepy, towering figure with glowing red eyes and an inflatable jack-o-lantern in her yard that she couldn't wait to show her daughter, Bryn. “Peanut doesn’t know about this yet, and she’s going to freak out in about two minutes and Dorinda [Medley] of course sent this thing to me, obviously," Bethenny said about the outdoor addition. "And I’m freaking out because I want it all year round.”
