Holiday Magic Festival of Trees | Bonnet House Museum and Gardens


Holiday Magic is coming to Fort Lauderdale! For Bonnet House that means an inaugural fundraising event like no other. It will all start December 5-7 with a team of designers decorating Bonnet House trees and wreaths that will be on sale throughout the week. On December 8th, we will kick off the festivities with a party on the veranda (Designers receive 1 complimentary pass -$50 a ticket for designer/decorators guests). Bonnet House will also be open for self-guided tours at night from December 9-14 with something exciting each night; from Santa and his elves, to Christmas story telling, to strolling carolers and much more.

Tree pick up will take place on Friday, December 16th.
THEME: Designer/Decorator may choose a specific theme and colors for each
creation. This information must be included on the “Holiday Magic Entry

TREE SIZE: Festival of Trees provides high quality trees at no cost to the
Designer/Decorator. Tree sizes vary from: 4’, 6’, 7’, 8’, 10’ and 12’. All trees should
come LED pre-lit. Stands are provided with each tree. However, some trees if
donated may come without lights, if so, requirements are listed below.

WREATH SIZE: Door wreaths will come in a variety of sizes. The most common size
is the 22-24 inch Christmas wreath. This is a great size for a standard size front door
and looks fantastic. If you have a larger entry area, door wreaths are available in a
slightly larger 28-inch size, a 32-inch size, and even in a 36-inch diameter. Side

Note: The size of a door wreath refers to the outside diameter of the wreath.

Silent Auction & Sales
Holiday Magic is a major fundraiser for the preservation of Bonnet House. All trees and
wreaths will be for sale starting with a silent auction the night of December 8th and sales
throughout the following week. 100% of the proceeds with go to Bonnet House. Therefore,
we are asking designers and decorators to donate their time, talent, decoration and
ornaments, etc.
