2012 Christmas Topiary Tree

Last Thursday night the church that we go to had a get together for the adults at a coffee shop in town. Nicole our daughter-in-law did the food, it was amazing. She asked me if I could decorate for the evening. There wasn't a lot of room so I came up with this topiary Christmas tree.

The heavy green ceramic vase  has a narrow base of just under 4", in order to weight the base and stabilize this top heavy tree I filled the vase with marble sand. The marble sand also holds the boxwood topiary in place.

The tree is made from bits and pieces from dismantled window displays. The bows and the cake are from last years Christmas window at Hillside Shopping Centre. The topiary was used in a summer window.  All of the faux crystallized fruit I found at Salvation Army.

This little piece of silliness stands about 5' tall and is now on my computer desk for the rest of the holiday season.
