For the past four years, Paizano’s has decorated a tree for a local charity function. The first year, it was a mini tree done in true Disco fashion with spinning disco balls and brightly colored stars. Our second year, my mom was in town and we spent hours with a glue gun and glitter from the Martha Stewart collection. The tree was amazing, and was bought for more than some of it’s larger neighbors.
Last year, Kristen and I did a tree that was titled “Nature’s Small Miracles”, and we were very proud of it. The tree sold for top dollar, and so the bar was raised.
And so this year my mom again agreed to help us with our concept of doing a tree titled “Ocean Treasures”, and I must say, I love it.
Seashells, octopus, turtles, starfish and lots of glitter. Under the tree we’ll have a pearl necklace and earrings, two big lounge chairs, fuzzy robes, a bottle of wine and a trip for two to the Oregon Coast.
I might just have to bid on this tree myself.
