Christmas Trees on Tour...

I am HAPPY to be a part of Julia's... I don't have a home for you to tour... but I have a tour of Christmas items that will go into homes... sooooooo...
Let's tour some very special trees... These trees are part of an annual charity event called The Christmas Tree Brunch put on by a division of Assistance League... each tree is decorated by members of the organization... tickets are sold at the event by young members called Assisteens... people tour the trees and out tickets in the box for the trees they would like to win!Each tree is uniquely decorated with a theme! Not only do you win decorated trees, but FABULOUS presents under the trees... gift cards, cash, vacations and more!Are you feeling lucky... you can gamble on this tree..After everyone has had enough time to tour the trees... lunch is served...
This year's table favor...
A lovely chicken breast with rice in a cream sauce with asparagus followed a yummy salad of baby greens and an incredible dressing to die for (ooops... forgot to snap a photo)...Dessert for kids was a fruit tart... note the little confetti... they are Micky Mouse confetti (ooops... forgot to mention... this event was held at the Disneyland Hotel)...Adult dessert... chocolate mousse bombe...While eating and drinking and being MERRY... tickets are drawn and winners are announced and then you must take home your Christmas tree and all the treasures under it... here are some more of the trees... an upside down tree... the items under it or should I say on top of it were FAB... this was the tree I wanted to win... but alas I did not win anything... sigh...
A country snowman tree...
A fancy tree with a jar of money...
Another pretty tree...
And you could even win SANTA and he came with $1000.00... isn't he GORGEOUS!


This is a WONDERFUL event to benefit children in need. The last couple years we have gone as a family and it gets everyone into the Holiday Spirit!

I hope you ENJOYED the Christmas tree tour! NOW... off you go on some more Holiday Tours via Julia's Holiday House Tours...


P.S. Here are some other sites that are having Holiday Tours...

What a wonderful event! The trees are gorgeous, and the food looks so delicious!

Julia @ Hooked on Houses said...

What a fabulous idea! I love it! It looks like so much fun, and for such a good cause.

How do those upside-down trees work, I wonder? You'd think they'd topple right over. I saw one for the first time last week--is this the new trend?

Thanks for joining my blog party! -Julia :-)

Fifi, What a great tour ... love that first tree. I found a great site the other day - a festival of trees in utah. Those trees were stunning!

What a great tour...so sorry you didn't win any of those amazing Christmas goodies. But it looks like you had a yummy meal! I would have been hoping for that Santa....he is stunning!

Great event! I would have loved to land that upside down one myself. :-)

Robin said...

Although I love decorating my tree... the idea of winning one "to go" is very appealing!

I'm joining Julia's blog party too... just as soon as I finish uploading my pics...

What fun! I loved those trees. Does the inverted tree hang from the ceiling? Oh I wish I had the space for that.

Sue said...

Wow, what a great tour. We had a Festival of Trees in the town that I am from too. The addition of gifts under the tree really adds an additional element to the event. Wish we would have thought to do that.

Kristen said...

Thanks for the Christmas tour...the meal looked wonderful also

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

Oh Fifi, I loved that tour. If I lived there that would certainly be on my "to do" list for the holidays.

Carrie said...

Hey there! Thanks so much for stopping by my Christmas Home Tour! I've seen your paintings on a few different sites and ADORE your use of vibrant colors! I have great appreciation, as I can't draw a stick figure without screwing it up!

Love the trees, but what I'd really love is living close enough to go hang out at Disneyland. I was there in 1985 for the 30th year celebration and that's the last time I've been to Disneyland. I know--boo-hoo for me, right??

One of these days...But it will probably be Disneyworld instead. Much closer to Michigan!
