Tree Designers

Trees can be decorated with any style or theme you choose, so let your imagination run wild! Designers will be responsible for providing all decorating and display materials for their tree(s). While we prefer you uniquely decorate your tree, for this year, we will provide an optional decorating service for an additional fee.


PHestivaL of Trees will provide all artificial trees and tree stands (these trees and stands must be used; no substitutions allowed). Tree decorating will take place on-site at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center. Possible dates to come decorate your tree will be November 8th – 11th. An email with an opportunity to select your preferred day and time slot will be sent to you by November 1st.


The registration donation is required for anyone choosing to decorate a tree and must be paid at the time of registration.

Gingerbread House Designers

Everyone is welcome to submit a creation into the Gingerbread Village at PHestivaL of Trees. Whether you are a culinary art professional, Boy Scout troop, Girl Scout troop, or just a group of friends, the possibilities are endless with these gingerbread structures.

As a designer, you are responsible for supplying your own decorating and display materials. These items should be included as part of your donation to PHestivaL of Trees approved animal shelters and rescues.


It’s easy to be a Gingerbread House designer – just drop your item off at the Greater Philadelphia Expo prior to the event on Tuesday or Wednesday, November 9th & 10th.
