Festival of Trees


Information for Tabletop Trees, Wreath and Centerpiece Designers

Dear Tabletop, Wreath and Centerpiece Designers,

We would like to thank you for your past support and welcome our new designers to become a part of our beautiful benefit for the Children’s Hospital of Michigan Foundation. We are truly looking forward to the stylish and fascinating creations you will submit!

Please note, we have combined our tabletop trees, wreaths and centerpieces into one contract, as well as the guidelines. These documents can be viewed / downloaded using the links below. English Gardens will once again provide 2ft and 3ft trees, and those will be available mid to late September. There are a limited number of 3ft trees, and those will be given on a first come, first serve basis. We are also in need of wreaths and centerpieces.

Please review the guidelines carefully. Note that when you send in your contract this is our confirmation that you will be participating in this year’s event.  Please join us in celebrating the success of Festival of Trees and the many benefits this organization has provided to children around the world.

We are in need of a few people on drop off day and set up day to receive trees and also to spruce up trees from last year that were in storage.  We can also use your help on cleanup day after the festival.

Once again, thank you for your support. We look forward to working with you to ensure a memorable 37th year. You may email your contract to me—I will send a confirmation.
