Festival of Trees 2014

Today I attended the Saint Alphonsus Festival of Trees 2014 Fashion Show & Luncheon with a group from work.  This was the 31st year of the Festival of Trees.  Traditionally I would visit with my family during the Thanksgiving weekend but as the boys have grown up they have lost interest in attending so now I really look forward to going with a great bunch of gals from work.

In addition to STARS/RMA sponsoring a table we also have a sponsored tree each year to help support Saint Alphonsus.  This year Tiffany and Diann decorated a tree using the Children's book The Mitten by Jan Brett.  It really turned out adorable with all the characters and the little mittens on the tree.  I don't want to brag but the book has always been a favorite and they did such an amazing job bringing it to life.  Great concept and execution! 

I keep thinking that I will carve a special stamp for this event and have it out only during the festival and then it rolls around each year and I totally forget to get one carved until I am down there enjoying the splendor.  Who knows maybe I will remember next year.

There was also this really cute North Pole Faery House on display with the smaller trees and the entire time I kept thinking that the other Kelly (Pixie Dust Gal) could have totally rocked it as she made our amazing faery gardens for our Faery themed event two years ago.
