Normally we like to do the Christmas in the Country, but Saturday weather was pretty yucky. There was snow overnight and sloppy slush going on, which wasn’t conducive to driving in the country and on some dirt roads. So, we decided to do something in town, which was the Festival of Trees!
The FOT benefits Prospect Center, which is a nonprofit that helps developmentally disabled and at-risk individuals and this is their primary fundraiser. Businesses and individuals create holiday trees and they are all on display for one weekend. You can actually buy these trees once the weekend is over as well – which is pretty neat.
There are a few rooms for viewing. The nice thing about the crappy weather is that it wasn’t very busy when we were there and could get right up the the trees without bumping into people. Enjoy the photos!
This one was called “Peas Over the World”
Some of the trees were really big:
Some were tiny table top trees, including some humor:
Red Cross Tree:
This tree was so pretty. It was called Winter Roses and it had red roses and white baby’s breath in it.
Word with Friends Tree!
Definitely a lot of creative and talented people out there. I hope it raises a lot of money for the Prospect Center.
