Many years ago, the Village of Egg Harbor decided to create a holiday scheme for the entire village. Small trees decorated with white lights and red bows – up and down the streets of the village at businesses and homes alike.
For some crazy reason, the Egg Harbor Business Association decided that since everybody didn’t want to decorate the same, we should have a contest. This year, I am a judge. When I got the form, I saw that Main Street Market was listed as a contestant! We did not sign up for the contest, but I decided we would try to decorate our two trees in a theme appropriate for Main Street Market.
Saturday, Jeanne and I thought the mini colored (delicious, by the way) peppers would make pretty garlands and the regular sized peppers would make colorful ornaments. Jeanne sewed the garlands, hung the ornaments, Nick cored a pineapple and planted it as a topper – and voila!
We had lots of other ideas, but most would have created a buffet for animals, so we stuck with just peppers. As soon as this silly contest is over the pepper decorations are coming off and we will just have pretty trees!
In the meantime – I hope we win!
