BEAUTIFUL DECORATIONS

Our time at the Opryland Hotel was wonderful. The decorations were absolutely unbelievable. It really took two days to see everything and the pictures do not show the beauty of it all. The picture above was a tree made from poinsettias. I can't tell you just how large this tree was, but I think you can see that it goes higher than four stories.

I made this picture to show the beauty of the hanging lights. There were hot air balloons with "animals" hanging throughout.

This was another VERY LARGE Christmas tree inside the atrium. I think you can tell from the people standing at the base just how massive it was.


This picture was taken of my husband and me in front of a tree was inside the hotel. There was so much to see that we really couldn't see it all while we were there.



This is another picture that shows some of the beautiful flowers all throughout. I can't imagine how many thousands of poinsettias there were in addition to the other flowers and orchids growing everywhere. Although this trip was work related, we still had time to have fun with friends and co-workers.

So pretty! We visit the Opryland hotel often when we take our young one to the Children's Hospital there in Nashville. It is always a nice little break before we make the long trip home. I've never seen it at Christmas but it looks just lovely.

Smiles,
