This year Vanessa got to do the dining room tree and she did a Nutcracker Suite theme. I especially liked the fairy lights at the bottom, and those are Clara's shoes that she throws at the mouse king. Here is a close up of part of her tree with some beautiful antique mittens (the girls all wore them at one time) and some blown glass nutcrackers and tiaras.
The next house we had a salad course and ooooo'd and aaaaaaah'd over another traditional tree. My friend Cookie has some cute cute garlands that look like teeny gumdrops, though they don't' show up in this picture.
Then on to our friend Deanna's trees. She had 4. Yes you read that right four. One average sized one in her porch with ornaments from students, one theme tree in her dining room- the PINK tree. Everything on it including the lights was pink. Next there is a small tree in her music room with her youngest daughters bear and pony ornaments, and last a little tree in her doll room with more student ornaments. Then we had chili and played cards before heading home.
Here is a close up of some of her pink ornaments...
Is this not the cutest ornament?? the potholder is fabric!
All in all a very successful "tree-ing".
