The success of Festival of Trees is attributed to the creative designers who share their talents each year. The Sandhills Children’s Center’s Festival of Trees provides an occasion for area Designers to showcase their talents before an audience of thousands. Significant to the success of this event is the broad appeal of the items available for auction with regard to design. Designs should showcase your skills and merchandise. Trees and wreaths are provided by the festival in order to guarantee high quality greenery. Festival of Trees shall have the right to establish and enforce quality control of designs and decorations in order to maintain a high standard of excellence.  Designers donate all decorations, lights and gifts with their design items.



Thank you to all of the designers for 2014!  The festival committee has filled all of the spaces for trees, wreaths and gift baskets.  If you are interested in designing a gingerbread house or donating a gift certificate for the auction, please email
