Never Dreamed I'd Want a Green Christmas

Everywhere I looked there were signs of a green Christmas. And I'm not talking about global warming. Decorations gleaned from the landscape, practical gifts given and received, homemade gifts. One of my favorite signs of going green was the wedding of David Peake and MaryBeth White. Chris Peake, the groom's mom, agreed to host both the rehearsal dinner and wedding reception mid-December on their farm in south Georgia. With the economic pinch, Chris needed a low budget plan for decorating. The pictures here show her creative use of greenery gathered around the farm, her only expense being the purchase of a few distinctive white flowers.

Chris used lots of potted containers to decorate which will last throughout the winter on her porches.

Several containers were gifts to the new bride and groom to decorate their new home.

Santa brought practical gifts to the Wise clan like flannel shirts and bike tires for riding to classes in the middle of the winter.

Even Santa goes green - new summer santa shorts so he can keep the AC up when delivering gifts to the tropics.
