Next is our handmade tree. I realised the day of decorating that I had nothing for the top of the tree so ferreted out a gorgeous mohair bear that Mum had made me a few years back. She was dressed in a pretty liberty print frock and bloomers but I hastily put together a fairy outfit for her and she looks so happy!
The pink tree was the winner in the adult category and was in tribute to a teenage girl who had been struck by cancer. I particularly like the way the ribbons have been run down from the top of the tree. It was very obvious how much thought, time and love had gone onto this tree.
There was a separate section for the children's trees, the brownies had festooned their tree in paper chains which was very effective.
The winner in the children's category was this hand print tree from Anna an Wills nursery. The hands had been printed in thick paint, sprinkled with glitter and laminated. These really do shine and I have Anna's on ourtree at home, it is a lovely keepsake of how little her paw is!
