Everson Museum Festival of the Trees Preview Gala

I have been donating a tree or two yearly to the Everson Museum Festival of the Trees for about 20 years.  Some have been large, some small and some my Child Psychology students created when I was teaching.  It is just something I have enjoyed throughout the years and the money raised during the 10 days of the festival and the sale of the trees helps the Museum.

The Preview Gala was a held Thursday night. 

Tobey and I enjoyed hors d'oeuvres, wine and music in the lobby....

...and then we toured the three floors of trees, and holiday decor scattered throughout the Museum

My little "Grinch" tree , with a handmade tassel was displayed here:

There were many trees, and these really caught my eye:

We met designer Thom Felicia:

 Tobey's sled (center) was on display with other unique holiday items....

...and I think this year the wreaths were my favorite:

This is a tradition I look forward to every year!!
