Tours, travels, hikes and journeys!

The San Diego Floral Association had a display, in the Casa del Prado room 101, of 30 decorated trees and 10 artistic floral arrangements. These displays were to celebrate eras or events since the 1915 Panama California Exposition. The Floral association often has various plant and flower displays on the weekends, in room 101. So check it out!

Here are photos of the various trees, who decorated them and the theme if I knew it. ( sorry some photos aren’t crisp):

I forgot to write down the name of the school who decorated this tree. The theme was pictures of students and ornaments that stated the countries of their heritage.

I didn’t take pictures of all the trees. It was a sweet holiday treat to see all these decorated trees.

Hope you got a chance to see these lovely trees. If not, come check out the display next year 🙂
