And the WINNER is ...

The winner of the 4 palm-tree napkin rings is Linda at Lime in the Coconut! Congratulations Linda, and thanks to everyone for stopping by and leaving me such great feedback on my very first Tablescape Tuesday!

As it is Christmas Eve, I thought I'd bring you a little "tree" inspiration from the Festival of Trees in Salt Lake City, Utah. I happened upon the site when I googled "inspiratinal Christmas Tree" and inspirational they are! Enjoy!

My favorite - and inspiration for next years Dining Room Tree!


  1. Oh, wow, Artie, those ARE inspirational. Fun eye candy!

    Have a very Merry Christmas, and safe travels.

  2. Artie!

    These trees are so incredible! They are just fabulous. I think this is one of the best festivals of trees I've seen either in person or online. Thank you for sharing! :-)

    Wanted to drop by and say, "Merry Christmas to you and yours, and may all of your Christmas dreams come true!"

    Be blessed...
