RESIDENTS who hate their neighbor’s pink door and over-the-top Christmas decorations say they’ve turned their street into a laughing stock.
Hannah Cox, 30, unveiled her bright pink Nutcracker creation for the festive season at her home in Minehead, Somerset.
But their festive spirit hasn’t impressed everyone, with some residents claiming it lowers the tone of the property.
A disgruntled neighbor, who asked not to be named, said: “I understand people wanting to celebrate Christmas but that’s a complete overstatement.
“Why can’t people just hang a simple wreath on the door – that suits the neighborhood better.”
While another disgruntled neighbor added: “This latest creation is just making a laughing stock of the neighborhood.”
Hannah, who changes her door decorations with the seasons, spent £685 decorating her front door for Christmas this year.
The nutcracker cost £250 while the wreath and celebratory bow cost £435 and took five hours to complete.
Despite her neighbors’ concerns, Hannah says the giant pink Nutcracker soldier and festive arch are just one way to showcase her fake flower business.
And she insists the show goes on, despite the opinion of some of her neighbors.
She said: “All I do is try to brighten up the property while promoting my business.
“It’s no different than a painter and decorator having a sign out front of their house — although I think that’s a bit more tasteful.”
Her love of crafting and decorating led to her opening her own artificial flower shop, Artificial Hannah, in June 2020.
Around the same time, she began decorating her front door to show the changing of the seasons.

For the past 12 months, Hannah has had a Queen of Hearts theme for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, pumpkins for Halloween, and now the Nutcracker for Christmas.
Hannah added: “My door took all day. I’ve been planning them since February. I started it in the morning and finished it in the evening just before it got dark.
“It’s so hard to find all the parts I want for it, so it took me all year to find what I want. I do this for every seasonal change.”
Hannah said her partner Ryan Cape, who works as a project manager, “accepted” that the door would change depending on the time of year.
She continued: “When I first did it he was a bit shocked but now he knows I have to beat it and get better every year.
“The resident of the house we are connected to was speechless when he came out to look at it. We don’t think he’s a fan.
“The other side of the house is loving it and looking forward to what’s next.
“I think people just need to loosen up and enjoy it. It’s not like it affects the price of their house.”
