FESTIVAL OF TREES
Tree Sponsor – the little bank
the little bank takes us back in time as we make our way through the Christmas woods in our warm winter jackets admiring the well decorated trees and being consumed in the season of joy. A beautiful theme, beautiful doll we can live vicariously through as we live in the monument.
Many heartfelt thanks to the little bank for this delightful theme and for being a Sponsor of the 2015 Festival of Trees.

A wonderful tree that looks like Christmas and New Year’s Eve combined. A splendid look to capture New Years coming in like a baby and nice way to welcome in those in the Neonatal Intensive Care unit. Complete with bow on top!
Thank you so much for your wonderful theme and for being a 2015 Festival of Trees Sponsor.
Tree Sponsor – Mike Reichel Family
This tree reminds us of the beauty found in nature, wild berries, golden cat tails, and exotic grasses, as if flown in and set in place by doves and bluebirds of happiness. A natural beauty we all enjoy.

Tree Sponsor – Let’s Build a Snowman

We know that taking the time to decorate your tree takes extra effort and we appreciate your doing so. We also appreciate the 2015 Festival of Trees Sponsorship. Your efforts are not in vain.
Tree Sponsor – John & Lynne Siegel Family
We are blessed to have such a wonderful themed tree, the Santa ornaments look like their right off the screen of Frosty the snowman with such an adorable Santa face. The dark rich red bulbs and poinsettias are complimented by flowing bands of gold, as they stream down from the watchful eye of this heavenly tree topper. The shooting sprigs and foundation of the angelic presence makes it almost come to life.
We very much appreciate the time and love put into this tree and are equally appreciative for the support of this the 2015 Festival of Trees.
Tree Sponsor – Honoring NICU Babies
What a gorgeous tree, and we love the snow laden branches. Dedicated to Honoring NICU babies, thee blue and pink ornaments stand out as theme perfect. Congratulations on such a lovely tree. The honor is well noted and the First Christmas message is well received.
Thank you so much for honoring the NICU Babies with this delightful theme and thank you for being a sponsor for the 2015 Festival of Trees.
Tree Sponsor – Honoring Exceptional Teachers
When you speak of honor and exceptionalism in sports they are given gold and silver awards, so how fitting that exceptional teachers are being honored with a gold and silver adorned tree. The golden angels may well represent the teachers themselves as they tirelessly give of themselves to those they teach.
We would like to honor those honoring exceptional teachers for this well themed tree. We also appreciate the 2015 Festival of Trees sponsorship.
Tree Sponsor – Greenville Convention Center
We have such a wonderful selection of trees again this year, a good variety of themes and this one is no exception. Purple being the predominate color intertwined with pastel ornaments and a pastel blue braid carrying your eye from top to bottom. This is a nice full tree as well topped with a hand crafted soft tree topper.
As busy as the Greenville Convention Center stays, were delighted they took time to decorate a beautiful tree for this years Festival of Trees. We appreciate the Sponsorship to the 2015 Festival of Trees event.
Tree Sponsor – Grady White Boats
We’ve seen trees that looked very nice in a light green, but after seen the color shift to dark red, we like this equally well. Love the way red and white play to bring out the best of both colors. The snowman on the top looks warm and comfy and has a smile that demands one in return. Great job.
We appreciate the time and effort you put into this tree. We also appreciate your being a 2015 Festival of Trees Sponsor. Thank you very much.
Tree Sponsor – ECU Staff Psychiatrists
A wonderful use of Poinsettia’s in the design of this tree. The colors compliment each other very nicely tie-ing the natural with the ornamental. Looks like its out of the pages of a seasonal display catalog. You inspire us.

We dearly appreciate Andy & Kaye McGinty Family for the beautiful tree and sponsorship in the 2015 Festival of Trees.
Tree Sponsor – Smith Funeral Home and Crematory
What a lovely way of capturing the Book of Luke’s account of the birth of Jesus, complete with angels. The star on top ties in the Book of Matthew nicely. A tree to make us appreciate the more important things in life giving us a model to follow.

Tree Sponsor – Edward Jones & Cam Lovitt
Snowmen certainly brighten up a tree, especially when they are as happy looking as this bunch. This tree features a nice blend of white snowmen and red ornaments with the occasional black lump of coal ornament for good measures no doubt. The “let it snow” song plays on in my head as I stare aimlessly into my childhood past admiring these happy fellows.
Many Thanks to Edward Jones & Cam Lovitt for both the inspiring design and Sponsorship of the 2015 Festival of Trees event.
Tree Sponsor – Waters Carpet
This tree is spot-on when it comes to animal themed trees. The leopard pattern carries nicely throughout the tree with and amazing assortment of ornaments carrying the pattern. Of course the Leopard Stocking at the top is the perfect pinnacle to the theme.
We thank Waters Carpet for your time and energy in designing and putting this tree up for all to enjoy and thank you again for your Sponsorship in this 2015 Festival of Trees.
Tree Sponsor – Tyre Realty Greenville NC
Love the way you captured the look of snow heavy branches along with the nests and birds. Looks as though the tree is sitting outside on a crisp winters day. The way the branches extend upward in the tree topper we expect a mother bird to fly in and feed her young’ins any minute. Very nicely done.
We would like to thank Tyre Realty of Greenville NC for their Sponsorship in the 2015 Festival of Trees and for providing such a nice looking theme.
Tree Sponsor – Tommy and Ginger Pate Family
Wow! this colorful tree can’t help but make you happy. The bright colors brought to life by the gorgeous array of flowers and high heeled slippers. Cinderella would be proud and sleeping beauty would have a reason to get out of bed again. Love the embrace of the feather boa’s serving as garland, a very nice themed tree.
Many thanks to the Tommy and Ginger Pate Family for their wonderful design and time and effort to put it together as well as their sponsorship in the 2015 Festival of Trees.
Tree Sponsor – The Journeys Group
Eloquent and classy, reminds one of the professional designed trees found on beautiful estates or important events. Love the blend of blue to white in this theme and the picture perfect snowflakes!

Tree Sponsor – Speedway Gas, Greenville NC
We were really pumped up about this entry, a beautiful mix of ornaments, especially like the use of the speedway trucks in the mix and the colors showcase the Speedway brand we’ve known and trusted most of our lives. Love the way the snowman is embedded into the tree bringing the tree to life.
Speedway Gas of Greenville, we appreciate your sponsorship in this years Festival of Trees and hope to see you throughout the year at the pumps!
Tree Sponsor – Southern Bank – Greenville NC
This tree is beautiful and no doubt close to many American hearts as it reminds us of the tree many of us grew up with, an American classic. Love the balance of colors in lights and ornaments. The white candy canes adorning the top is just the perfect touch.
We are very grateful to Southern Bank of Greenville NC for their Sponsorship in this years Festival of Trees.
Tree Sponsor – Service Roofing and Sheet Metal
According to the blueprints, this tree exceeds the minimum standards for an excellently designed theme. And its very handy to have around when a quick repair comes up. The mix of tools and protective gear is great and the safety chain makes for an excellent garland. We don’t usually see trees with a caliper much less of this caliper. Excellent job and a great promotional feature tree.
We would like to thank Service Roofing and Sheet Metal for being a 2015 Festival of Trees Sponsor.
Tree Sponsor – Santa Claus is Coming to Town
We love that frosty has an old friend hanging out at the Festival of Trees this year. Of course, Santa has been known to be a bit shy and elusive around this time of year, so be sure to look carefully for him. The red sequin boots are the perfect touch to bring these two icons (Santa and the Tree) together. We adore the Santa tree, thank you very much.
We are delighted Santa Claus is Coming to Town is a 2015 sponsor of the festival of trees.
Tree Sponsor – Robbie Marlowe Family
The force is strong in this tree. We love the paper cutouts of Yoda, Darth the storm troopers. The light sabres and candy cane sabres help us to appreciate your creativity and attention to detail. Even Princes Leia has been beautifully captured in your artwork. Knighthood is obviously in your future.
We dearly appreciate the Robbie Marlowe Family and the support you’ve shown through Sponsorship in this years Festival of Trees. Yes, we wrote “and the support” because we most definitely appreciate your family.
Tree Sponsor – Powell Medical Equipment
The star of this tree are the small soldiers reminding us of the old movie “the nutcracker”. We think anytime something activates our sentimental side its a good thing. The perfect blend of red, blue and gold against the dark green background would look right in any home or office.
A special thank you to Powell Medical Equipment of Raleigh for being a 2015 Sponsor of the Festival of trees. We appreciate the time and effort you put into your tree design as much as your clients appreciate the effort you put into their rehabilitation medical equipment.
Tree Sponsor – Pitt Greenville Soccer Association
We’re sure the kids had a ball decorating this tree. Besides the great Soccer theme, the tree topper grabs your attention while providing a graceful flow down the tree highlighting the association teams along the way. A fantastic advertising move all while supporting the families of Eastern North Carolina. Love to see PGSA challenge other area associations to do likewise next year! Very inspiring!
We love that you chose to Sponsor a tree in this years Festival of Trees and we thank you dearly for it.
Tree Sponsor – Pediatric Residents; Brody School of Medicine, ECU
Who doesn’t love the Minions? And for those times we feel like a minion, this tree helps to put a smile back on our face and brings cheer to our hearts. Great theme, we love it as I’m sure the kids in the ECU Pediatrics do.
We hope you don’t mind, and accept a healthy Thank You in place of a “banana”, for being a 2015 Festival of Trees Sponsor.
Tree Sponsor – My Eye Doctor
At first glance I thought I needed an appointment with My Eye Doctor. The fuzzy ornaments make the tree look as though it was caught in a snow ball fight. The white pearl ornaments are the perfect contrast to the white snowballs and the quantity and size of the poinsettia leaves is just right. And the tree topper arrangement is excellent. Love the attention to detail.
We also love your kind heart and thank you for being a 2015 Sponsor of the Festival of Trees!
Tree Sponsor – Metallix Refining
A warm and classy theme, we can almost see a tree like this being selected by hand and brought back to the house on a sled on a crisp winter day. The beautiful and nostalgic look that would awesome with the lights of a fireplace dancing nearby.
A very warm Thank You to Metallix Refining of Greenville for being a 2015 Sponsor of the Festival of Trees.
Tree Sponsor – McGee Chiropractic of Greenville NC
We love the Old Fashion splendor of this tree. The details in the ornaments, the large bows and sashes coupled with stylish golden accents. Looks like it should be on the cover of a holiday magazine.
How can we say Thank You for being a 2015 Festival of Trees Sponsor without saying the same thing over and over. Truth of the matter is we thank you from the heart.
Korean Presbyterian Church – Winterville NC
Who doesn’t love handcrafted ornaments? The time and effort to make all the Origami is very much appreciated and looks lovely against the green backdrop of the tree. Birds, baskets, roses and much more. Its delightful!

Many thanks to Hoffman Haus Pet Resort for being a 2015 Sponsor of the Festival of Trees. We appreciate your infectious love of pets and wonderful tribute to them via your tree design.
Tree Sponsor – Halloween Express
Halloween has traditionally been the number one holiday in the United States, yet most folks take down the decorations right after the 31st. Halloween Express has found the perfect way to extend the Holiday deep into December with a scary tree draped in spider webs and spiders. This cool Gothic look will likely intimidate cats from climbing the tree or present shakers from getting too close.
We would like to thank Halloween Express for being a sponsor of this years Festival of trees and look forward to more inspiring designs in the years to come.
Sponsor Tree – Great Harvest Bread Company, Greenville NC
Love the mix of organic pine cones and golden bulbs with bright red lights against the tree’s green texture. The burlap tree topper is a nice work of art which flows down the tree blending beautifully with the natural elements of the tree and pine cones.
The Great Harvest Bread Company of Greenville is a community partner as illustrated through their Sponsoring of this tree. We sincerely appreciate your sponsorship and the time you gave toward this decorating this wonderful tree.
Sponsor Tree – Golden K-Kiwanis
Frosty looks as though he will walk out and shovel the drive at any minute. A creative tree which is very photogenic and delights all who are in its presence. The white lights add a nice sense of depth adding to the expectation of movement.
Thank you Golden K-Kiwanis, thank you for your sponsorship and for your clever gift of imagination. Your group is dearly appreciated.
