Sign Up to Be a Tree or Wreath Designer

Be a Festival of Trees Designer

The Baby Fold’s Festival of Trees would not be possible without the incredible talents of our creative tree, wreath, centerpiece, and holiday decor designers. Their donated pieces make up the silent auction items available in the Enchanted Forest at the Festival of Trees. We encourage you to sign up today to be part of the amazing group of imaginative volunteers who make the Festival of Trees truly magical.

Please be sure to review our policies and procedures in our NEW Auction Item Designer Manual before you get started

Step 1: Tell us what you'll be donating through our Design Commitment Form.

Step 2: Once your item is ready, tell us about it through our Design Description Form. We need this important information by November 12, 2021, for our silent auction item listings.

Step 3: Bring your item(s) to the Interstate Center! Your completed items can be dropped off on Monday, November 15 from 5:00pm to 8:00pm and Tuesday, November 16 from 9:00am to 8:00pm. If you are designing a 7 foot or 4 foot tree, those items can be decorated on site at the Interstate Center on Tuesday, November 16 from 9:00am to 8:00pm only.

If you have questions, please contact Jessica Shaw at (309) 451-7205 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Designers are also invited to attend the Jeffrey Alans Workshop, tentatively scheduled for Saturday, October 9, to learn design tips and advice. Register here by October 1 for this free event!

The Baby Fold purchases and provides all artificial pre-lit trees for the designers at no charge, but if you wish to help offset that cost, we invite you to donate here to help The Baby Fold reach its fundraising goal - thank you!
