Creative friends help deck Burien couple’s tree with colorful ornaments

Each December, local artist Marge Ellsworth and Highline Times editor Eric Mathison host a Christmas ornament making party in their Burien home.

Burien photographer Maureen Hoffmann describes it as “good clean fun” and an opportunity “for a bunch of adults to get toegether and be creative.” Hoffmann also notes it allows the couple to amass a collection of unique ornaments for their seven-foot tall Christmas tree.

The December event is a companion to their October pumpkin carving party.
