Take in trees and treetoppers like the angel above at the Festival of Trees at Ward Warehouse.

O Christmas tree!

Christmas arrives at the Ward Warehouse second-floor conference rooms via the 48th annual Festival of Trees.

The benefit for the Queen's Medical Center features the sale of handmade holiday decorations, dozens of Christmas trees custom-decorated by local celebs and members of the community up for auction.

Last year, a miniature tree designed by University of Hawaii football coach June Jones sold for $500 at silent auction. The UH men's volleyball team will be decorating the UH tree this year.

Others participating in the Celebritree Silent Auction include Henry Kapono, Matt Catingub, Kim Taylor Reese, Jones and chef Russell Siu of 3660 on the Rise and Kakaako Kitchen.

Funds raised will finance critical-care ventilator machines for Queen's.

The event runs 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. today and tomorrow, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. Silent-auction bids will close at 2 p.m. Sunday. There is an admission fee of $1; keikis 12 and younger will be admitted free.

For more information, call 547-4397.

Kehau and Joseph Yokoi will be among the children riding Hawaiian Electric's float in the Electric Light Parade.

New route for parade

The annual Electric Light Parade, part of Honolulu City Lights opening festivities tomorrow, will have a new route this year, from Aala Park, down King Street to City Hall.

Chinatown merchants are being asked to light up the streets. Hawaiian Electric Co.'s lead float will feature a voyaging canoe surrounded by a lei of flowers and HECO children.

The parade starts at 6 p.m.

For more details about Honolulu City Lights, see "City Lights brighten everyone" and our Weekend section today.

Head to Lanikai

Artists and crafters will be exhibiting at the Lanikai Craft Fair, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. tomorrow at Lanikai Park on the corner of Aalapapa and Kaiolena drives.

Lunches from Lucy's Restaurant will be available for purchase, and you can hit the beach afterward, take a peek at nearby Waimanalo or move on to the next craft fair. A list of fairs is in today's Weekend section.

For more information about the Lanikai Craft Fair, call Patty LaForce at 263-1925.



Customized makeup

In a visit timed for the holidays, two of the founders of 3C, Three Custom Color Specialists, makers of custom-blended cosmetics, will be at McQuaid's Fine Living at Ward Warehouse this weekend to give free makeovers.

Chad Hayduk and Scott Catto will be in the store from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday to offer free makeup consultation and application counsel by appointment.

The company is known for its ability to custom-blend cosmetics to match anything -- from your favorite discontinued lipstick to the exact shade of your New Year's Eve gown.

3C cosmetics was founded when two former Kiehl's employees and an art-world friend joined to create couture cosmetics for clients like Penelope Cruz and Juliette Binoche.

For an appointment, call 589-1900.

Fame is a tape away
