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.

Richard's workbench at Glam Vintage & ModerneDIY always seems like a great idea until it’s time to clean-up your sparkly mess in addition to your normal cleaning routine.

Now all you have to do is make “dinner”.for 12.

The Great Pumpkin

Silvery Pumpkin at Glam Vintage & Moderne

What makes this pumpkin great?

It’s not real…therefore it won’t deteriorate.  There will be no pressure to carve it or roast the slimy seeds inside it.  It transcends Halloween “seasonal” decor because its silvery finish takes it through to Christmas and adds that sparkle to your wintry tabletop decor.  Dust doesn’t show on it.  It comes in 2 sizes.

The “Christmas Rush”

Buy Christmas Now!

Great Christmas bauble purchases can usually only be made in October and November.  When the real season is upon us and most of us start to get in the mood to buy the interesting vintage glass and mercury glass ornaments they are already gone to other fine homes.  Richard did this great “holiday” arrangement and surrounded it with bowls full of spectacular glass birds, brilliant snowflakes and sparkly pendant ornaments.  It is November 21st and the bowls are already half empty.  Even if you see them as half full they are undeniably going…going…gone.
