Decorating Your Tree

DECORATING YOUR TINSEL

Supplies to bring:

  • LED lights ONLY. No exceptions. 

  • Extension cords will be provided.

  • Decorations must be able to withstand outdoor conditions, wind and rain.

  • Zip-ties, pipe cleaners, string, or other ties to secure your decorations are recommended.

  • Plastic drop cloth or other covering for the fence and grass if you plan to spray paint your tree.

  • You may want to bring a step ladder. Trees range in height from 6-10 feet tall.

When you arrive at the park...

  • On the Tree Selection Day, the check-in table will be set up with a Camden House representative in the park. Please check-in to receive your tree sign.

  • You will "claim" your tree with your sign.

  • BRING YOUR LIGHTS. Your LED lights must be checked before decorating your tree and your cord will be provided when checking in.

Decorating tips & rules:

  • Make sure your decorations are rain and wind safe. Trees will be standing outside in the elements for several weeks.

  • Secure ornaments to trees using zip ties, pipe cleaner, string, wire or other ties. Ornament hooks will fall off in the wind.

  • Do not use water-soluble glue on ornaments.

  • Spray any fabrics with Scotch Guard to prevent mildew.

  • If you plan to spray paint your tree, please bring a drop cloth to protect the grass. Be mindful of your neighbors and the wind when spray painting.

  • Please make sure to have outdoor-rated LED lights. This will help to make that process go smoothly. Thank you!

  • There should be NO decorations or additional signage in front of the fence except for your tree sign issued by Camden House.  Additional signs may be placed behind the ropes, but nothing may be inserted in the ground.

  • A Camden House representative will check trees daily and will notify you of any lights or decorations that need to be maintained.

  • You have from 5 p.m. Monday December 6, 2021 until December 10, 2021 to complete the decorations.
