Independence, Missouri

Back in 2011, Downtown Decorations was approached by the city of Independence, Missouri to create a unique custom giant tree. The tree was to be displayed outside of the Jackson County Courthouse in the center of the downtown area, which sees a lot of foot traffic. The city, which is the hometown of Harry S. Truman, is actually the fourth largest in Missouri and has over 117,000 residents. Independence is also home to the headquarters of several denominations of the Latter Day Saint movement, including the Community of Christ.

Our design team came up with a pattern for the tree that was unlike anything else. The huge 24 foot tree features some more traditional décor items like the classic green, red, silver, and gold ornaments and bright white lights but it also showcases some truly unique items like the striking red bows scattered throughout and a giant four foot star tree topper. We think the traditional mixed with the unique makes for one spectacular looking tree.

Orlando International Airport

Downtown Decorations teamed up with the Orlando International Airport in 2013 to create a very unique custom light up base for their giant tree. The airport, which is located in Orlando, Florida, is the 13th busiest in the United States and the 33rd busiest in the world, according to passenger traffic numbers. Airport officials contacted us to help create a spectacular holiday display that would be remembered by travelers from around the world.  Our design team came up with this one of a kind custom light up tree base. The base measures two feet high and 15 feet around. At night, the white v-shaped patterns illuminate to create an outstanding and unforgettable display.

Geneva, New York

In 2011, Downtown Decorations was contacted by the city of Geneva, New York to design some holiday décor for their downtown. Located on Seneca Lake, the largest of the Finger Lakes, Geneva is a popular vacation spot known for its wineries and beautiful outdoor scenery. The small city nestled in the Finger Lakes wine country brings in thousands of visitors each year. With the increasing popularity of the city, officials decided they needed the very best holiday decorations to show off their thriving downtown. We provided the city with more than 50 three foot snowflake pole decorations, pole wraps, and a large amount of LED lights. Our décor lines the main downtown street and we could not be happier with the way it all turned out.

Calhoun, Georgia

In 2011, Downtown Decorations teamed up with Calhoun, Georgia's Downtown Development Authority to create an enormous sphere tree for the city. Calhoun has around 16,000 residents and is located just 50 miles south of the charming Chattanooga, Tennessee, and 70 miles north of the fast-paced Atlanta, Georgia. Due to its location, many people pass through Calhoun each year. The city decided that they really wanted to impress their visitors and residents with some memorable holiday decor. Downtown Decorations designed this awesome 21 ft. sphere tree to put in front of the Gordon County Courthouse, the center pint of the downtown. We think the project turned out great. Take a look at some more shots of downtown Calhoun below and click here to learn more about our sphere trees.
