Lori Reilly, who has been a decorator at the Tree Festival for 25 years, incorporated her work as a florist into this year’s design. Glitter-embossed calla lilies and butterflies shimmer throughout the tree.
“In times of economic downtown, people return to their Christmas comfort zones – usually reds and greens. That’s one of the reasons that I chose shades of those colors,” said Reilly.
Champagne and copper ornaments add a bright contrast from the deep cranberry reds and forest greens on this beautiful tree.
To see this tree and other holiday creations, visit the Holiday Tree Festival, Nov. 17-25, at the John S. Knight Center. Admission is free. For more information, visit akronchildrens.org/treefestival.
