Just An Old-Fashioned Tree
Just an old-fashioned tree in the dressing room,
old-fashioned compared to a 1930 Christmas tree.
December 22, 1930
Events planner Joseph Mulen suggests
"a Christmas tree of pale green gauze
suspended from chandelier to floor--
the cardboard circular base
encircled with a green gauze ruffle…
scores of pale green balloons wafted by
an electric fan stationed at the base
and lighted by bulbs."
