Ready, Set, Christmas

Glam Vintage & Moderne's entry for The Festival of Trees

Glam Vintage & Moderne’s entry for The Festival of Trees

The Port Hope Festival of Trees starts this Friday, which conveniently takes place:

a) after this recent snow dump has cleared b) on the same night as The Candlelight Walk and LIghting of Memorial Park and c) on the same night as Moonlight Madness.

Festival of Trees 2013

This is a night where you can kickstart your Christmas.  In the afternoon visit the Capitol Theatre and enter a draw for your favourite of the 80 trees .  Glam’s tree is the one without a single bare spot.  It is fully laden with berries, bows, balls and feathers in warm tones of gold and peach.  It is DONE…I mean totally!

Have a little dinner at one of Port Hope’s great restos then at 7pm warm your heart by watching the traditional Candlelight Walk to the lighting ceremony in Memorial Park.

Finally snap out of the glow and  “START YOUR SHOPPING”.  Most of the retailers will provide discounts “Friday night only” so take advantage of their generosity and get your list ticked off locally at reduced prices.  Call some friends and make a date for this special night out.

Better still,  invite them to stay over.  Nothing takes the edge off like the sights and sounds of the following day’s whimsical Port Hope Santa Claus parade coupled with a Tylenol extra strength.

Pa rump a pum pum.

It’s Beginning to Look a Bit Like Christmas

Although Richard is a retailer whose main goal is to sell lots of quality stuff, he cannot be coerced into putting Christmas decorations out in October.

Even displaying Christmas a few days prior to Remembrance Day doesn’t sit well with him…but he succumbed to pressure from his clientele who want to see Richard’s “over the top” arrangements and spectacular ornaments. See how you can make a basic chandelier extraordinary with Glam’s adornments, wire and a glue gun.  If you’re artistically challenged just dangle a few ornaments or hire Richard to “feather your nest”.
