Festival of Trees 2011

So this post is a little late in coming.
Better late than never right?
In November I attended the Festival of Trees bidding night with Angie and Tiffany. Here are some of my favorite ideas for next Christmas.
Love these colors and the wreath made out of tulle.

I am totally smitten with any sort of advent or countdown calendar. I thought this one with the little socks was so cute!

I loved the little wreaths on this tree. They were wrapped in yarn and had little felt flowers. So so cute.

I was lucky to have the winning bids on three items - a nativity carved out of soap, a small tree decorated with owls and a super cute gingerbread man wreath. Angie also won a wreath - we were so stressed out bidding on our items. Tiffany walked into the gift shop at the end of the evening and found this great wreath - Lucky Girl! So cute and she didn't have to even bid on it!

On my desk -

I am days away from the Fancy Food Show - my desk is overflowing with papers, candy, ribbon swatches, art work samples and booth designs. It is a little overwhelming but I am so excited to go to San Francisco. We are launching 2 (maybe 3) new product lines. I am so excited by the way they are coming together. I am so anxious see the response to our new products.

Ruby Foo vs. the chicken catalog

Ruby Foo has all sorts of toys but her favorite thing in the world is chewing up catalogs and magazines. She seemed to take great delight in destroying the chicken catalog tonight.
