A peacock in a tree -- make that an almost life-size peacock in a Christmas tree? Who would have thought? I asked David to explain this one: "I found the peacock at Michael's here in Redmond and thought it could be a lot of fun to use on the tree. Given all of the peacock themed ornaments that both Radko and Breen have done, along with the different colored ornaments that are in those shades, we found that we had enough to do it. We added some smaller peacocks found at Milager's that year that I was at their event.
"The following year (after the picture was taken) it was much better looking as I had the tail sweeping around the tree and will be working on that this year to see what I can do with it to make it better than before."
Ornament collector and author David Olsen has several trees in this gallery of themed trees. Each one has a wow factor and proves that it doesn't have to be traditional Christmas to make a spectacular display.
