We went to the Festival of Trees last weekend while in Killington - it's part of the Vermont Holiday Festival. Here's a pictoral recap:
On some of them I only took a picture of the sign because the names were oh so clever. There was a cold cut platter sitting under this tree.
Did you get that last one?
This is the garland on the Star Wars tree. Uncooked pasta from a box of Star Wars mac and cheese. Someone went to a lot of trouble for this. I bet there was alcohol involved.
That one is for Johan.
This tree was all about dogs with disabilities. Note the Humane Society of Western Montana representing.
Speaking of alcohol, who would have guessed Jagermeister makes holiday ribbon?
"Caution - Work in Progress." This tree was decorated by a business that just bought a building and is remodeling the interior. Note the hard hat as tree topper.
Decorated with giant garlic cloves and "martini olives" by a restaurant in Killington called The Garlic.
Fortune cookie garland. Clever.
This was my favorite. Read the name of the tree.
**Note to self (translation - note to Derek): show this to Dee Dee and pilfer the idea for the Bigfork Festival of Trees next year!
Best. Wine. Bottle. Packaging. Ever.
All of Santa's helpers were out on a coffee break. Or something.
And that's it. Gotta go because someone is sitting next to me whining about dinner as if she hasn't eaten in three years. Gah. We put up our tree the other day - I will take a picture tonight. While you wait, here's poodle in one of her quieter moments (as opposed to, you know, right now):
