Wow, we just got back from the Christmas tree festival. Individuals or companies decorate and donate trees, wreaths, or vignettes to the festival to be sold. The profits benefit The Akron Children's Hospital Medical Center. There were over 150 trees , rows and rows that looked like this in the convention center.
This little guy was so cute, I have a thing for flocked or plastic deer. Yep, anything tacky pulls at my heartstrings!
This beauty won a prize ribbon but I can't remember which one as they had so many categories to win in.
Some pretty pink ornaments that caught my eye.
This was a smaller tree decorated by a girl scout troop in a princess theme. Why do all the pink ones end up in my pictures? He-he!
Elegant is how to describe this lavendar and lilac beauty. Not my color but gorgeously done.
Do you see the cupcakes on this one!? They should have done the whole thing in cupcakes in my opinion. They were so stinkin cute!
This was a heavily flocked all white tree . It was so peaceful and calm
Ok, can you tell this is the cotton candy tree!? Yeah, those puffs are pink cotton candy, not real of course or it wouldn't have lasted the show!! I know you are saying "again with the pink and food themes!" I must have been hungry.
Ok, there should be a drum roll here.....this was my absolute favorite tree titled "O Holy Night". I couldn't capture it's icy blueness. It was so sparkly and I wanted to get close enough to see the lighted manger at the bottom so you can't see that there was a white trellis with white lights surrounding the table. It was already sold. I wouldn't have bought it anyways because as much as I like looking at designer and theme trees, I have to have mine with all the construction paper, pipe cleaner, tissue paper, ornaments that my kids have made over the years. I buy the kids an ornament every year so that when they have to leave they will have a small collection and maybe they will keep their hands off the handmade ones they have given me.
