More than 20 handmade centerpieces are featured in the Centerpiece Silent Auction. These one-of-a-kind designs are made by local florists, artists and crafters. All of the centerpieces can be bid on through silent auction during the Festival.

Centerpiece designers will receive four Festival of Trees general admission tickets and one Gala ticket for each entry. Designers will be listed in the Festival of Trees program, the special insert in The State Journal-Register, and on the Festival of Trees Recognition Wall located at Memorial Medical Center. Each centerpiece will be provided identification signage.
