Harold and the Purple Crayon

Our Interior Design staff just participated in the tree decoration competition for this year's IIDA Christmas party which was held at the Brick Anchor Brew-House in Norfolk.

Each tree was to be themed around a popular children's book. What a clever and creative representation of Harold and the Purple Crayon (you can see Harold drawing the purple star on top)! After the event, all of the decorated trees and books are donated to St. Mary's Home.
