2011 Festival of Trees Portsmouth, NH Part 1 of 6

Monday was unload day for Festival of Trees. Karen & I had the living room in the cottage to decorate. 1950's living room & Santa's workshop we called "The Day Before Christmas".

The Festival of Trees has been a Portsmouth tradition since 1983. This festive event is co-sponsored by The Portsmouth Garden Club and the New Hampshire Division of Forests and Lands-Urban Forestry Center.

Local businesses, artisans, civic groups, and individuals
are invited to display a tree, decorate a room, or create an exhibit. There is no fee to participate and all exhibits remain the property of those who participate. There are no raffles and nothing is sold at this fun filled family event.
Monday the truck was loaded and we were ready to start set up.

This was the room in the cottage Karen & I would transform into a 1950's display.

Karen utters her favorite Festival phrase "A tree can never have too many lights"

We only have until Thursday night to pull this together!

Wednesday and Karen is adding more lights!

Now on to the wreaths.
