Discover How the Bidding and Angel Prices Work

Did you know that almost every item at the Festival has an Angel Price?

All of the items at the Festival are up for silent auction, but if you don’t want to keep coming back to re-bid on your favorite items, you don’t have to!

The Angel Price is similar to the “buy it now” on e-bay.

Today we’ll tell you about how the Angel Price works as well as how the bidding process in general works.

Want to Learn How to Design? Come to the Jeffrey Alans Workshop!

The Jeffrey Alans workshop is a great way to get you started on designing your tree. The Workshop will be this Saturday, October 17th beginning at 10:00 am. The workshop will provide hands on demonstrations and tips for decorating your trees. The Designer Committee will be there to answer any questions you may have. There will also be valuable coupons available for attendees, compliments of Jeffrey Alans. This is also the time to pick up your pre-ordered 4’ trees! We hope to see you there!


Designers are Needed – Why Don’t You Give it a Shot?

We are still looking for people and organizations to design for the festival.  There are a number of options from trees to wreaths, centerpieces and set-a-table.  The great thing is that you don’t need to be a professional designer to participate!  We have partnered with Jeffrey Allan to make sure you have all the skills you need to make a beautiful design.  Two workshops will be available for you to learn the “tricks of the trade.”

“This past year I took a stab at decorating a tree for the first time.  Decorator day was a blast!  As I was decorating my Precious Moments tree for the Celebrity Area, I listened and watched all of the other decorators.  Each one had their own strategy and process for putting their trees together.  It must have been obvious it was my first time, because I had a few different people stop by to chat and offer tips.  Everyone was helping one another and it was fantastic.  I felt a bit of nervousness when I was decorating — would someone bid on my tree?  Fortunately someone did and the bid was higher than I anticipated.  (Whew!)”  ~ Stephanie LH Calahan
