It’s that time again – Our 16th annual Fashions for Evergreens contest is underway! Voting is Thursday, November 25 through Sunday, December 12.

Fashions For Evergreens 2021

This much-anticipated tree decorating contest fills our foyer and entrance area with trees that are decorated at a designer level by local businesses and organizations. 

“We’ve loved being able to host this event for 16 years and seeing how it’s grown,” says Teresa Hughes, Director of Sales and Marketing at The Inn. “It’s so fun to see designers come back year after year and watch their creations just get better and better.” 

The designers’ hard work does not go unnoticed by the public. Thousands of people come to view the trees in person each year and they receive more than 20,000 views on Facebook. Many families have even made the competition part of their family traditions by taking yearly photos in the foyer. This is an incredibly popular event that we are proud to sponsor each year. 

To make the contest even more interactive, everyone has the opportunity to vote on their favorite evergreen after walking through using a QR code while at the hotel. Can’t make it to see the trees live? No big deal! You can also vote for your favorite on social media. There are also professional judges who cast their votes as well. 

“We’re thankful for the designers that make the holidays come to life at The Inn,” says Isaac Rife, Marketing Manager and Fashions for Evergreens Coordinator. “By having multiple ways to vote and promoting the competition on our social media, we’re able to offer extra exposure to the designers’ business or organization.”

This year, 15 trees are available for public viewing and voting from Thursday, November 25 through Sunday, December 12. Winners will be announced during a special awards ceremony for designers. The trees will be on display through Sunday, January 2. 

Our foyer’s creatively designed trees present awe-inspiring decorating ideas in an extraordinary display. After you take in all of the dazzling trees, be sure to cast a vote for your favorite.
