This Christmas we were asked to decorate a tree at the Ritz Carlton in Philadelphia for the Festival of Trees. Twelve trees decorated by local Philadelphia businesses are on display through the holidays in the historic and grand lobby of the Ritz Carlton. Proceeds from the sale of hot chocolate benefit Philabundance. Philabundance is a wonderful Philly organization created in 1984 on the simple belief that no man, woman or child should go hungry.

We did our best to capture the spirit of the holidays and also the spirit of Three Potato Four by decorating our tree with found objects from nature. On our hikes in the woods, local trails and our backyard we gathered pinecones, berries, seed pods and fallen branches and collected, bottled, and labeled each of them. Please visit our 3P4 tree at the Ritz and of course warm up with a cup of hot chocolate. Merry Christmas.
