PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — One of the many holiday attractions this year is the Festival of Trees at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, on South Broad Street (the “Avenue of the Arts”) at Chestnut.
It’s a collection of trees designed and decorated by different groups around the area, on display in the hotel’s historic rotunda lobby.
Mary Jo Gallagher, from Greystone Interiors in Haddonfield, NJ, was working on her tree (top photo) as we visited during the setup.
“Everything on the tree relates to a winter wonderland,” she said. “The winter owl, a lot of pine. It looks like there’s freshly fallen snow on the limbs. We have some white birch at the top.”
Michele Seidman, with Interior Dialogues, had a slightly different approach for her tree (right):
