Every Time We Give

"Every time we love,
every time we give,
it's Christmas."

 Monday, November 29, was the set-up day for the Festival of the Trees.  We loaded up the tree, the reindeer, the wall hanging, stockings, tools  and all of the things for the Gift Shop, and headed to Sandy to begin setting up.  
Ardis ~ giving some helpful direction
The atmosphere at the South Towne Center is electric with creative energy and excitement ! It is so fun to be up there on set-up day!
Santa and His Reindeer Wall Hanging and Stockings to Match!
The Festival board members have this all down to an exact science and things flow smoothly. We check in, then find our designated spot and begin to assemble the components of our display. The tree is finished, but needs a few touch-ups.

It is a wonderful event and all the proceeds go to Primary Children's Hospital to help children around the world get the health care that they need. The Festival begins Wednesday, December 1 and goes through Saturday, December 4th at the South Town Center in Sandy.

 The festival has hundreds of different sizes of trees, wreaths, gingerbread houses, centerpieces, quilts, a gift shop, and bakery as well as entertainment all day long.
