Williamsburg Christmas Tree

Okay, so this Christmas tree is actually just one of the many displayed at our library's annual "Festival of Trees."  But when I saw this tree, titled "A Williamsburg Christmas," at the library last night, I thought of the gorgeous Williamsburg-style decoration that my 'blog-friend' Amy made last year to go over her front door.  Of all the funny things, today Amy blogged about her door-topper for this year -- you can see it here.  Merry Christmas, Amy!
As often happens, this picture doesn't do the tree justice.  There is a lot of fruit on it (including pineapples which, unfortunately, you can't see in the picture), a lot of roses and birds, and I love the pheasant-feather topper.  Beautiful!  It is a style that I definitely want to dabble in someday.

Very pretty but not as elaborate as you usually like! Nice to see other trees and history, too.

Thank you for sharing the picture! I do like it. I just love the idea of using things from nature to decorate for Christmas. Though, I did get a comment that is making me feel badly about "wasting" food. Merry Christmas to you!
