Changes percieved…

Green tints the “great tree” in Chicago’s infamous Walnut Room on the 7th floor of Macy’s loop location. However, soaking up the wondrous view over time shows changes happening in the room. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

Now untraditional, cool, blue lights shine on the tree and ceiling emphasizing a star covered ceiling. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

Red is a primary color of the Christmas season. It is a prominent color this holiday season at Macy’s (formerly Marshall Fields) Walnut Room in Chicago’s loop. We managed to get a lunch seat under the tree; a treasured spot. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

Natural tree skirts…

This tree’s ground “cover” includes purposely planted cool weather Pansies, enhanced with nature’s addition of fallen golden leaves. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg.

Treeskirts are placed around the Evergreen Christmas tree; real or artifical. Here, the Evergreen tree (real) is skirted with a layer of it’s own soft, warm, pine needles and leaves from a few wind blown neighbors. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

This time of year I begin thinking about the tree skirt for around the trunk’s bottom of our Christmas tree. We’re going with a table top tree this year; so I am thinking I might want a tablecloth underneath the tree skirt; a double layer under the tree. The tree skirt actually is used to cover the un-decorative tree stand.
