We love the challenge of having to create something fabulous for the Festival of Trees fundraiser event every year. This year SWND decided to stick to our rustic roots and paint these hollowed stumps with gold leaf and fill them full of festive beauty. For one arrangement we painted dried queen anne's lace gold to create a more structural (and permanent!) centerpiece and for the other, we fitted the stump with a glass vase and created a woodsy but elegant, winter arrangement with antique hydrangea, pepperberry, berzelia berries, and more.

|In order to add a rustic edge and blend with the barn-like setting at the Gordon Brown House, we set the urns atop a freshly cut birch stump pedestal.|
