Get inspired to donate and decorate with the Sutton Place's designer Christmas tree display
Designer trees at the Sutton Place Hotel raise money for charity and offer great ideas for home decorators
These unique trees were decorated by local designers and companies in support of the Sutton Place’s annual charity drive.
You can vote for your favourite tree for $5, and in doing so, support PALS, BC’s only school for autistic children. “We were thrilled to chosen as the benefactor for this event, it’s a great idea and something the students get really excited about,” said PALS founder and president, Katy Harandi. “We only do a few fundraisers a year and this one is an enormous part of keeping the school a success.”
PALS students and parents decorated the largest tree in the centre of the lobby with gift boxes they had made themselves.
Other contributors included Sublime Interiors, Urban Presentations, Accentrix and, most notably (although I may be a little biased as one of its designers), Space Harmony, a Vancouver home staging company.
Space Harmony’s tree concept, explains owner Negar Reihani, was to create a real feeling of home. “The holidays are about family, and the best memories from that time are all about sitting around together making things – be it dinners, wrapping gifts – you name it, it’s all about getting creative. We wanted to create that feel of home and family while still representing who we are as a company.”
With that in mind we chose to design decorations using items that surround us daily. Mounds of fabric samples, paint charts and even pieces of chandeliers were all transformed by hand into beautiful decorations.
Voting runs until January 2. Votes cost a minimum of $5 with all proceeds going to PALS Autism School. There is also a prize draw for the voters, the winners of which will be announced in January.
