Decorate the float!

We will be getting a tree and some boughs and decorating the float, and probably tying red ribbons on the remaining hundreds of scrolls! There will be a fire in the fire pit.

    Thanks everybody. I think the float will look great.

    Lots of camaraderie, good ideas and participation. A good time, and a successful effort.

    Found a 10' tree today that I hope will be a good one for the float. Not a pruned one but not too "Charlie Brownish" either.

    I have made a bunch of popcorn strings, as well as cranberry strings, but we'll probably have to hang them on the tree when we're holding still in Ellsworth early on Saturday.

    I'm bringing multiple old white sheets that we can cut up and staple, etc., for "snow" to cover the bottom of the tree and much of the float.

    Looking forward to it.

    Anyone want to carpool?

      Gabrielle I am not yet sure what I will be doing before and after so not sure about carpooling...

      Excellent to more strings of popcorn and cranberries, and the white sheets!

    Lights in the daytime aren't very impressive but the truck does have a cigarette lighter plug so we can try.
    Also Nancy do we need boughs? I can get some but don't have them yet.

      I think we could use some boughs for the truck (bumpers?) and the back of the float. We have two 12' long pieces of roping for the sides of the float, I am picturing them above the signs...Lights, maybe we should skip...I am going to try to get some corsages and garlands for our hats made if I can figure out how they would attach. I have holly and sprigs of various greens. Any other ideas?

    The scrolls are all tied with ribbon so we can cross that off the list. Some have suggested lights for the tree but no one has figured out the power for them. Also, Abbie has a boom box so we could have music...

    349 Eastbrook Rd., in Franklin. From the Ells. McDonalds take a left onto Rt. 1 and continue about 5 miles to Rt. 182 on the left. (Viking Lumber and Tideway Market). Another 5-6 mi. to Rt 200 on the left in Franklin. (Toward Eastbrook). 3.6 mi. on Rt. 200. My place is 349 on the Rt. I'll have the firepit going so we can warm up while we're working. Should be fun.
