My PEOPLE TREE …………..Christmas 2015

My friends from London brought me the cleverest dolls……..Louis the 14th, Marie Antoinette and Shakespeare………….so I had to create a peopled tree.

The food was delicious………thank you mom.  Lots of toys from Tom and Don.

The immediate hit with GABBY..……….make-up and manicure set.

For ZACK it was a huge crane [no, not the bird].

The DOLLHOUSE was the favorite with little CASSIE

For Tom and Don……..it was the JOY of being with the sweetest kids on the Upper West Side.

CHRISTMAS PARTY in my Building

The party was delightful.  Sweet little kids skittering about……..their parents enjoying some bubbly at the bar………and everyone found the food scrumptous.

The planting of my CHRISTMAS TREES

What screams CHRISTMAS more than a Balsam Fir!  You can go to a tree farm and pick out the one you want.  But how are you gonna do that when you live in New York City???

You call……..TRILLIUM DESIGN GROUP.  They will bring a touch of nature to your door.

Balsam_Fir

I called ……….and they delivered………..2 beautiful BALSAM FIR………..and three cute guys to plant them…….Jose, Brent and Patrick. [ TRIVIA:  The resin from Balsam Fir was used to treat wounds in the Civil war].

TRILLIUM DESIGN GROUP can design and install your inground landscaping…….your rooftop…….or your terrace.

TRILLIUM designers are experts at choosing the right plants for a terrace in the sky……….heat, winds. too much sunshine or shade.

It tasks a lot of muscle to hoist a 240 pound tree [in it’s burlap wrapped clay ball]………..and drop it into my Griffen planters.  These guys were terrific.

 

CHRISTMAS TREES NYC 2013

These are a few of the 500 photos I took of trees around the city.  There weren’t any that “WOWED” me over.  Not this year.  Very little creativity……..no new themes……not even one little “Charlie Brown” tree to be seen!

You can “get up close and personal” with any tree that you CLICK ON:
