Don't Miss the Festival of TreesThis most wonderful time of year is made even better with Home Paramount’s participation in the annual Kennedy Krieger Festival of Trees. Join us at the Maryland State Fairgrounds on November 27 and 28 from 10-9 and November 29 from 10-6 when the Cow Palace becomes a veritable wonderland of more than 700 trees, wreaths, and gingerbread houses bedecked by creative local designers. Home Paramount Pest Control will display two trees this year. You do not want to miss this fun!
Our 7-foot tree is a nature-lover’s delight, fantastically decorated in the theme of “Wildlife Wonderland” and dedicated to a young friend of Home Paramount named Jadon. Foxes and squirrels scamper through the branches of a snow-laden tree while tartan ribbons stream elegantly among branches glowing with white fairy lights. Dainty woodland creatures frolic on the branches while sturdy acorns, squirrels and an adorable hedgehog burrow in the snow underfoot. A majestic pheasant nests at the top amid extravagant swirls of moss and burlap ribbon.
Home Paramount’s 4-foot creation is named “Home Sweet Home” and is dedicated to our wonderful residential technicians. This glowing Advent tree is bedecked by twenty-five glittering houses nestled among swaths of gingham ribbon. Star-shaped birdhouses provide a sweet shelter for pinecone birds in their comfortable spruce home. Smoke plumes from a delicate house perched at the snowy tree top, a home aglow with the light of the season.
When you’re finished reveling in the trees, wreaths and delectable Gingerbread Houses, enjoy the entertainment. Kids will be excited to see their favorite band, Milkshake, take a turn on the magical carousel, prep the Christmas Eve team on a “reindeer” pony ride, and of course, meet Santa. Readings from local celebrities will keep adults entertained while kids create in the craft center. You might even make progress on your Christmas list at the silent auction.
If you’re still on the fence about whether to attend then consider the cause. The Festival of Trees raises funds for research, treatment, education, and community programs at the Kennedy Krieger Institute. For those who aren’t familiar with the Institute, Kennedy Krieger is an internationally recognized institution that helps children and youth with pediatric developmental disabilities and disorders of the brain, spinal cord and musculoskeletal system.
Many thanks to Sarae, our resident designer extraordinaire, and Judy for time well spent on Sunday making the Fairgrounds look a lot like Christmas. Hope to see you there!
