Which Premium Decorations Should I Spend Donuts On? Part 1

Premium decorations do not generate income, instead they produce a “premium decoration bonus”. There is no maximum to the bonus amount , and you can purchase as many premium items as you like. Each purchase helps contribute extra cash and XP percentages to your income generating buildings & tasks. (note: in order for the decorations to give you a bonus they must be out in your town, they cannot be in your inventory)
This version of the premium guide will be a little different than the building and character guides, in that the Pros and Cons won’t be listed for each decoration. Instead this is more a guide as to which decoration will provide you with the most return in both your Conform-O-Meter & in the bonus multiplier. Use this to best maximize the earning potential of your town.
