Yesterday was decorating day for the Festival of Trees. The Festival is a big event where they auction off all the donated trees to raise money for Primary Children’s Hospital. This was my third year doing a small tree. My dad took me to Festival as a kid every year for as long as I can remember.
I let Valerie pick the theme of the tree every year. This year she is really into pearly stuff and pastels. So that’s what we did. And of course I name the tree after her. Valie Girl 2.
Funny story about these little accessories, the cute pearly tree…I broke it. Yeah, it’s missing the base. I actually wrote a note and taped it to the bottom apologizing for the casualty :). Oooo and how do you like my tree skirt?? Those are my hot glue gun skills right there! 🙂
These little chandeliers were the first ornaments we found and loved. We based the tree around them.
And here’s me with my little tree! Yes, I totally wore that shirt and pearls to coordinate with the tree. I’m crazy, I know, you don’t have to tell me.
If you are going to the festival you can find my tree on the end cap of aisle B.
I tried not to look at the other trees going up because I’m taking my family this weekend to check everything out. I’m such a dork. As if it’s a surprise and I don’t want to spoil it for myself :).
Do you have any fun Christmas traditions??
