The plans for the Christmas Tree we are decorating for the Auburn Homes Festival of Trees are complete!
We are thrilled to be part of this fun event!
The day to decorate is next Thursday!
The theme this year is Christmas Carols!
The theme for our tree is
"Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree!
All of the components ready to go!
It is good that we did a lot of planning ahead of time!
we are getting close to the due date for the Sweetwater Grandbaby!
Somehow I don't see the Sweetwater Daughter able to climb around on ladders by then!
We will let her come and be the "decorating director" if she is still waiting to go into labor!
We have gotten some back-up decorating help from the Sweetwater Niece!
I thought you might like to take a peek at the things we have found to create a unique and fun take on the theme!
What a great score at GoodWill!
4 boxes of these 45s for $3.99 a box.
They will go on the tree using skinny black ribbon!
(note to self....buy some skinny black ribbon)
These "classic hot rods" are really cardboard food trays for a 50's party theme.
What a find for $1.50 each.
Won't they will make a big impact nestled into the branches of the tree?
We learned last year that larger objects on the trees add a lot of drama!
The records and the cars fill that bill!
We got some of these little cardboard Jukeboxes from the same place!
Not sure if the scale is right....so we may or may not use them.
What do you think?
A Poodle Skirt from Amazon will be the perfect tree skirt!
The black and white ribbon will reflect the "malt shop" theme!
Nothing says the 50s like black an pink!
These shatterproof pink ornaments and silver tinsel garland will complete the look!
The garland is from Amazon and the ornaments from Christmas Central!
I can't wait to put this whole thing together!
I think we have come up with a pretty unique take on the Christmas Carol theme!
We are still trying to figure out a tree topper.....any ideas would be most welcome!
Have A Great Day!
