Little Mandy's Christmas Tree

Designer: George and Peggy Rapp Family and Jerry and Rosie Semler Family

Description:

“The ripest peach is highest on the tree,” according to The Hoosier Poet, James Whitcomb Riley, who received these sweet notes from fans during the Christmas of 1911.

Specifics

  • Replicas of postcards sent to Riley adorn this tree
  • Dried flowers, applesauce and cinnamon ornaments, and dried fruit represent how Riley might have decorated his tree
  • Dried lunaria — also known as money plant — creates the perfect tree topper

Warm holiday wishes hang from the tree.
