Festival of the Trees

The 2010 Festival of the Trees in Pinehurst was another fantastic success. Every year the Sandhills Children’s Center holds this event in the Carolina Hotel and invites residents to decorate and donate christmas trees, wreaths, door prizes and gingerbread. For the past four years I have built and decorated a gingerbread house and this year I thought I’d try something different. To the right you’ll see this years entry of a vase made from gingerbread and filled with Magnolias and Dogwood blossoms made entirely from sugar. This centerpiece will last for years if stored away from humidity and inquisitive fingers.
