Christmas Tree Festival

Last weekend my mum invited us to come along with her to her local Christmas tree festival; I have been to many christmas tree festivals in recent years, but I dont recall going to any as I was growing up, they seem to be growing in popularity and most are hosted in local parish churches.

Personally I think its a great idea to get people into a church building so that they can be familiar about how it is all set up; the festival raises much needed funds for charity and also a percentage of the money goes to the upkeep of the church building, which I know costs a lot of money as I was a churchwarden a few years back.

We left the car at my mums house and decided to wrap up warm and walk the 5 or so minutes to the church. I am always amazed at how many people enter trees into the fetival and even more impressive is that I have never been to a tree festival where there have been 2 similar themes.

Here are some of our favourites from the christmas tree festival we went to over the weekend.

Which one do you like? Have you been to a Christmas tree festival before and have you entered one? I would love to know so please leave me a blog comment below.


  1. What a lovely idea! Those trees are great - I especially like the egg box tree!

  2. Awesome egg box tree - environmentally friendly and so effective. What a lovely little tree festival.

  3. What a great event to go to, I bet it's really interesting different peoples creations. I love the egg carton tree. I bet the girls really enjoyed seeing all the different Christmas Trees. Thanks for linking up with Country Kids.

  4. This is a great idea. To be honest, I've never heard of a Christmas tree festival before but I'd love to see all those different trees. My favourite ones are the more traditionally decorated, but I think the bad humbug tree would appeal to my husband :) #CountryKids

  5. Beautiful trees! what a great idea the egg box one is! #CountryKids xx

  6. Wow, I love that egg box tree! I keep EVERYTHING, so I actually have enough egg boxes to make that happen!
