Trees and Boxes

John Falke from Fairfax Community Church outside of Washington D.C. brings us this gift box Christmas theme.

This set was inspired by the decor at a bridal shop in the UK. The concept was to have hanging presents with red bows. They also incorporated wooden trees and video projection flat trees made of Coroplast. In the lobby, they set up a photo station that included a portable chalk sign that was counting down to Christmas so people could take photos throughout December to build anticipation toward Christmas and invite their friends.

All of the presents were white square boxes from with red ribbon and big red bows on them. They used red ribbon to hang the presents from trussing on the stage and from the ceiling in their coffee shop. They also hung snowflakes and red bells as well. They cut out Christmas trees from white Coroplast and projected on to them.

In their coffee shop and lobby they kept the theme going and added white and red paper lanterns hanging from the ceiling.

At the photo station, they had styrofoam letters cut out with our Christmas theme “BLESSED.” The letters were 6” deep and approximately 4’ tall. They used white styrofoam and painted them red. They were cut out with a CNC machine. They printed a backdrop for the photo station and had a banner printed that gave people instructions of what to do.

They also made several trees out of wood 2×4’s instead of using traditional looking fake or real trees. They used lights on the wood trees to make them different colors.

  1. Love the idea of a photo station. Where did you have the backdrop printed?

  2. Hey Jeff, thanks for the feedback. We printed that banner at – this one was a vinyl banner. It worked pretty well though there was a bit of light reflection of it. So when we did another photo station this past summer, we printed a fabric banner and that seemed to be better (or at least more real looking). I think we printed the fabric banner from on their Fabric 9oz Premium Polyester Banner. Hope that helps.
