Christmas Tree Farm in the Prairie

December 19, 2016

Location: Prairie Pines Christmas Tree Farm - Maize, Kansas

Outfit Details: Buffalo Check Sweater Jacket (similar here) ; Whimsical St Bernard Thermal Tee (here); Hunter Boots 

 

For the last few years, we've been visiting Prairie Pines Christmas Tree Farm in Wichita. It is a choose and cut farm. Nostalgic and family friendly. I can't imagine getting your tree any other way. Sure it's so much easier to pick a tree up at your local grocery store or a big box store like Lowe's and Home Depot......but there's nothing like finding "the one" in a forest of pines. Prairie PInes does a wonderful job of creating an Old Fashioned Christmas experience, complete with Clydesdale Horses pulling a decorative wagon, Christmas music filling the air, beverage stations to get hot apple cider, beautiful decorations, sit by a warm fire and even visit with Santa! They will loan you a saw all you have to do is jump on a carriage ride and find the perfect tree! If "manual labor" isn't your thing, you can buy a pre cut tree as well - they can even flock them if you prefer a White Christmasy tree. If you haven't been to Prairie Pines - be sure to go next time and support our local farmers and make memories. That's what the holiday season is all about.....finding joy in nature, beauty, family and the simple things. 

 

 

 

This buffalo jacket has become my favorite holiday season go to. It's adorable with jeans and a tshirt but you can also dress it up with black velvet leggings or black velvet flare leg pants, a white pussy bow blouse and the cutest buffalo plaid heels.  Be sure to read further down for other adorable and festive holiday plaid options!
