For the 33rd annual Holiday Tree Festival, Just B Design and Abshire and Haylan’s wanted to do something unique with their tree, “Just B Hopeful.”
“Our tree is very springy and renewing,” said Cheri Decker-Holmes, one of the three designers of the tree. “It is a showcase of open faith.”
The tree features flowers of all shapes, sizes and colors, a decorative watering can tree topper, as well as 13 hand-drawn and framed flowers created by Abshire and Haylan’s goldsmith and designer, Belinda Vartenuk. The 3-woman team, including Decker-Holmes, Vartenuk and Lori Decker, was strategic in its design approach.
“We put together different colors and groupings of flowers to find what we liked the best,” Decker-Holmes said. “We tried to match the colors and types of flowers to the hand-drawn ones. They’re all very special to us.”
“We just hope that in creating this tree we give whoever has the privilege of owning it and seeing it in their home throughout the holiday season the joy and happiness it has brought to us,” added Decker-Holmes.
