Festival of Trees
Trees on display: Tuesday, December 3, 2013 to Sunday, December 29, 2013
Decorating the Christmas tree is one of the most exciting projects of the season. From selecting the right topper, to placing the ornaments just so, arranging the tree speaks volumes about how one celebrates the holidays. In recognition of this tradition's importance, 10 Arts Bistro & Lounge will once again host Festival of Trees, a visually stunning event in which nearly a dozen elegantly designed trees adorn both the restaurant and the historic lobby of The Ritz-Carlton, Philadelphia. And as those symbolic decorations rustle with promises of the joys yet to come, guests
As onlookers savor the creative expression of each tree, the event itself will promote the true meaning of the season by raising money for Philabundance. 10 Arts is donating a portion of sales from its signature hot chocolate menu for the month of December to Philabundance, a local nonprofit food bank.
