Festival of Trees...

Yesterday Bobby and I took Donna to the Festival of Trees at the Orlando Museum of Art. It is an annual fundraiser for the museum and a pretty good one too. The theme for this year was something akin to Recycle, Reduse, Reuse, Rejoice! or something along those lines. Most of the trees were pretty fab. But there were some real stinkers too. Fortunately for you, I didn't take any stinker pictures. Or unfortunately, if you like looking at bad design. And I forgot my camera, so I stole Bobby's Iphone and went to town. Following are some of the trees I liked.

This one was okay, I just really loved the big topper on it. I'm a sucker for a huge tree topper. A sucker.

I'm also a sucker for peacocks stuck on top of a tree. A sucker.

This was most traditional and I love the big Santa head. I'm a sucker for big Santa heads. A sucker.

Well, this one actually used the theme of recycling. One of the few that did. Unless you want to count the tree decorated with Home Depot things...not decorations from the Depot, but tools and aprons and the like. This tree was decorated with cut up and painted soda bottles. It was fabulous. And it was designed by elementary school kids. I love that. Chihuly-esque.

This was a Paris I don't love love love the stuffed poodles on it, but I do love love love a white tree with pink and silver decorations.

Bobby informed me that he hated these colors together, which is strange because blue and orange have been my color scheme for a couple of years. Thanks Bobby.

But this, oh this! It was fabulous. I wish I had taken a full length. It was grapevine sticking out all over with these frosted berries and those birds. It was heaven. Donna and I both loved it best.

And sorry for posting Christmas trees a little early. I just opened my new show, "Dear Santa" at The Rep and have been in the spirit for a couple of weeks.

Happy Early Decorating!
