Decorate a Tree
Put your imagination to the test by decorating an enchanting tree for our auction. We are always in search of talented tree decorators. If you are interested in decorating a tree or in having a design sponsor, please contact Event Coordinator Gigi Ashley at 541.660.3430 or email her. For inspiration, you can view trees from past events in our photo gallery.
Tree Decorating Guidelines
A major part of our fundraising efforts will occur during the Tree Auction on Thursday, December 5, 2013. We recommend and encourage placing donated gift items under your tree to increase the value at the time of auction.
7-1/2 ft. pre-lit artificial trees are provided. Your tree should convey a cohesive theme that is evident in your use of color, decorations, and gift items. The Festival reserves the right to deem an entry inappropriate based on concept development or the individual items under your tree. A well-planned tree theme helps increase the sale price of the tree.
Please register your theme with Gigi Ashley to avoid duplications. You must submit your theme no later than September 15, 2013.
All sponsors and decorators will be acknowledged in the program and on individual tree signage. See Become a Sponsor for additional listed benefits.
All donated items become the property of the Rogue Winterfest.
All items must be suitable for someone’s home, office, or business.
No living plants, food items, or animals may be used.
No advertising is permitted on the entries.
All decorations must be wired or hot-glued securely to the trees as they will be moved from Bear Hotel to the new owners on Tuesday, December 10, 2013.
A tree skirt or other covering must be part of your tree.
Your tree will be set up and ready for you to start decorating at 9:00 am on Wednesday, December 4, 2013. Decorators will have from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm to decorate. Trees must be completely set up and decorated by 7:00pm Wednesday, December 4, 2013. Trees will be judged at 9:00am on Thursday, December 5, 2013.
Decorators who have picked up their trees early, in advance, must deliver their pre-decorated trees on Tuesday, December 3, 2013, between 3:00 pm and 5:00 pm. You may come back on Wednesday, December 4, 2013, between 9:00am and 7:00pm, if you need time complete your tree.
