Up next… three more stunning trees!
A Small World of Dolls
Decorated by Empty Nesters
& inspired by an antique doll
This tree is adorned with small figurine dolls of every shape, size, color, and place of origin. All along the tree, red threads lace together various flags representing each of the cultures which the dolls belong to. The shape of these dolls is brought to better focus with the great many small but bright lights that adorn the tree from the inside and out.
Adorning the tree also are a great multitude of “Happy Holidays” greetings written in languages ranging from Swedish to Israeli (indicated by the English in parentheses beneath the greetings). Decorating the base of the tree are the larger, more intricately detailed dolls, who sit in chests and in chairs just below the branches of the tree.
Building Fun at Christmas
Decorated by The Mother Connection
Inspired by wooden blocks
This tree is decorated from top to bottom with an assortment of primarily wooden objects, following the inspiration for the ornaments to the dot. Everything from wooden letters, numbers, and blocks adorn the tree on every branch.
Colorful, glittery CD disks hang among the wooden components, along with some paper art of Christmas trees. The entire spectacle is brought together with a grand, radiant, red rope draped around the tree from bottom to top. Every ornament is easily identified against an array of many small Christmas lights, varied in color and very eye-pleasing paired with the dark of the pine tree branches.
I Think I Can
Decorated by & inspired by wooden train engine
This spiritedly snow-white flocked tree is ornamented with an assortment of items that stay true to it’s inspiration. Paper crafts of trains in every possible design and color hang from the tree. Next to those are wooden train-set bridges, also of different colors and styles. Acting as the tree’s star, a wreath decorated with train tracks and stars stands at the very top of the tree. The Professional Center for Child Development’s mission is to provide therapeutic and educational services for children of all abilities and their families, working with each child to develop to his or her full potential. They strive to eliminate barriers to growth and development for children with disabilities and families coping with health issues and challenges. This tree, inspired by a train from The Historical Society’s collection, represents their children as “The Little Engines that Could.”
