Festival of Trees

If you're at SouthPark mall during the next few days, be sure to check out the Symphony Guild of Charlotte's Festival of Trees, a display of the beautiful small holiday trees decorated by everyone from area designers to businesses and nonprofits. 

Here's one of my favorites, which designer Melissa Melvin calls Couture Christmas:

The trees are on display in SouthPark mall’s Circle Court (between Belk and Neiman Marcus) through Dec. 3. The trees move to the lobby of the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center Dec. 4-8 in conjunction with the symphony’s performance of the Magic of Christmas presented by SPX.

To view (and bid) on the trees, go to Proceeds benefit the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra, Charlotte Symphony youth orchestras and youth music education.
