Tree decorating bonanza sets imaginations alight

Mt Eden Village channels the silly season on Saturday 1st December with the annual Christmas Tree Decorating Fiesta as part of Christmas in the Village.

Dozens of pint-size Christmas trees are waiting for creative young elves to decorate them. Sackful’s of vibrant and colourful craft materials will be provided for kids and parents to create their very own individual decorations and designs with the trees all yours to take home at the end! With ribbon, tinsel and fir flying – it’s a real Christmas brouhaha.

The Tree Decorating Fiesta offers a great chance for families to do something inventive together in an outdoor environment. With Christmas tunes pumping and families coming together to create, it’s the perfect way to slide on into the festive season.

Once the tree is complete kids can show their design to one of the Christmas helpers in exchange for an early Christmas treat!

All of the $10 donation received goes toward supporting community initiatives in Mt Eden.

Don’t miss your chance to celebrate Christmas in the Village with trees, crafts, and families gathering for a super fun day out.

When: Saturday 1st December (12pm – 1pm)
Where: Village Green, Essex Road Reserve, Mt Eden
Donation: $10 donation gets you a mini-tree and access to all craft and decorations

Trees can be reserved by emailing admin@mounteden.co.nz
All reserved trees must be collected at the start of the event at 12noon.
Any tree not collected at 12noon will be reallocated to other waiting participants.
