How much will it cost to decorate my (fill in your size) tree?
This is definitely the MOST frequently asked question. A one-size-fits-all approach to pricing does not align with our primary goal of offering maximum value for your seasonal investment. Without a consult, or at the very least a brief Q&A session, a number doesn't mean much. We will not price out a tree without your input. Please understand that it would be very easy for us to put up a simple size/price chart and call it a day, but that would never suit our client's unique needs and fluctuations in price would be guaranteed if we went off a chart.
The questions are simple and only our client can answer them. For example: How tall AND wide is your tree? A 7' pencil thin, 1.5-2' wide tree will be priced differently than a robust spruce. A 12' x 7' wide tree will be exponentially more than a 12' x 3' tree. Are we shopping for the entire tree, skirt to star? Do you prefer genuine crystal ornaments and lavish designer ribbon to match your already exquisite collection? Do you have existing ornaments that you're adding to the tree? Is it bare? Do you have a (mostly) decorated tree and are simply adding adornments and ribbon this year? Are we procuring that for you or are you heading out into the stores to find and make those purchases yourself?
Once we have the details, we can absolutely guide you to a price range and "give you an idea". For an official estimate, a proper consultation is required.
How soon can I book?
We “officially” open our book up to the public in September. However, we begin getting booking requests for next year, during the current season. Typically, as invoices are paid for the current year, we book that client for the following year. So don’t delay if you’d like us to deck your halls this holiday!
Do you decorate the exterior?
We do! We will take care of the trimmings (read: wreaths, garlands, illuminations, figures) while we have a list of preferred lighting companies that can make your home glisten.
Do you rent decorations?
We rent commercial trees/greens. However, at this time we are sold out of commercial trees and greenery for the 2020 season. Please inquire if you have a special request. If time allows, we may be able to procure what you require.
Can I request not to have my decor shown online?
For some of our clients, privacy and anonymity is extremely important. Whether it be your identity, or the background of your home or business. We value your privacy and our relationship with you. As such, we will gladly refrain from displaying any home or business at your request.
Can you use the decorations I already have?
Absolutely. This is a popular option as we get closer to Christmas and time seems to slip away from us. If you have a full array of Christmas decor and simply don’t have the time to get everything up and ready, we are at your service. If you bring out the boxes, we will create the magic.
Should I buy the decorations and supply them for you?
We have relationships with fabulous Christmas decor companies and hold trade accounts with many of the the most sought after fine living companies in today’s marketplace. While you are always welcome to purchase your own decor, we have access to the variety and scale you require.
We have a new home and need to start from scratch but don’t know where to begin. Can you help?
After a consultation and learning your preferences, we will be honored to curate the perfect collection for your home. From greenery to finishing touches, we have you covered. You can participate as much or as little as you would like.
Can I buy this service for someone else?
We just love this question! ‘‘Tis the season for giving, afterall. If you have a loved one who is unable to decorate, but could use the holiday cheer, we would love to help. Let us know what you’re looking for and we can arrange everything.
I don’t know what I need, can you help?
You have decorations galore...garland, bows, Grandma’s keepsakes.... but you’ve been eyeing the same decor for years and you’re just not sure how to tie it altogether and decide what should be saved and what needs to go. Enter, Soul Tree. Sometimes a fresh eye is all it takes to spruce up and thin out a well loved collection. Sometimes, we need to add in a few new key pieces to freshen up your space. Whatever your need may be, we can guide you in the right direction.
Do you decorate live trees?
Yes, live trees can be absolutely breathtaking and a beautiful way to celebrate traditions of the season with your loved ones. However, the stiff, strong branches of artificial trees lend them to a wide range decorating possibilities. They can hold the most fabulous adornments where live trees tend to bend and buckle with the weight of more complicated designs. Decide what your tree decor goals are and then we can help you decide if a live tree is best for you. We love decorating with fresh greens, but please mind their short shelf life when you consider your install date preferences and seasonal investment.
Can you decorate everything except our tree?
Of course! We love to do this. We’ll set the stage, fluff, and light the tree, while you take a free evening to do the fun part, adorn your evergreen beauty with your favorite holiday ornaments.
Do you also offer interior design and remodel services?
We have your holidays covered but for interior design we strongly recommend Melissa Dohlen at “The Weathered Cottage” (on IG: @theweatheredcottage). Melissa has a natural gift with designs that are classic, striking, and thoughtful.
