It's Quite Easy Being Green
The ever-popular Willunga Christmas Tree Festival is Going Green. Every year there are new things to enjoy and this year there will be a new Weaving Christmas Tree Workshop, in addition to the popular Advent Wreath Workshop.
Beautiful Christmas Trees from the 2017 Christmas Tree Festival
There will be Christmas crafts for sale, colouring-in competitions, music and the famous Devonshire teas. The highlight of the festival are the beautiful and creative Christmas trees. My favourite from the 2017 Christmas Tree Festival was 'Starry Starry Night'. The originality and presentation were outstanding.
Starry Starry Night
You didn't need to be school age to enjoy the quirky toilet humour of 'Toiletrees' or 'Who Gives a ...Star?' These trees had great recycling themes that would fit well with the 2018 Going Green theme.
Toiletrees and Who Gives a ...Star?
The Willunga Library entry 'Follow the Star' was adorable with its book-themed baubles, stars and flowers.
The Gingerbread Tree looked delectable. The standard of creativity was set high last year.
What will charm, inspire and leave us in awe at 17th annual Willunga Christmas Tree Festival?
