For most Americans, Black Friday means waiting outside department stores in the cold and rushing through stores to get the best deals on presents. However, here at Ambius, Black Friday and the weekend after Thanksgiving means long days adorning hotels, shopping centers, retail stores and office buildings with wreaths, garlands and sprawling Christmas Trees.
In 2014, Ambius has been fortunate to have installed and decorated a number of high-profile Christmas trees throughout the U.S. Ambius Design Consultants often work for months with their clients to finalize the designs and coordinate the installation.
The projects below are just some of the breathtaking Christmas trees Ambius had the privilege of designing in 2014. From Vancouver to Chicago to San Francisco, the Ambius elves worked their magic once again this year. Be sure to let us know your favorite tree in the comments section!
Willis Tower (Chicago, IL)
A tall tree for Chicago’s tallest building: Ambius installed a beautiful 50-foot holiday tree at Chicago’s Willis Tower (formerly Sears Tower) – one of the largest trees we have ever put up. It took a team of 15 people more than 18 hours to install the tree and surrounding décor. Well done Ambius Chicago!
Riverside Convention Center (Riverside, CA)
Ambius had the honor of partnering with the Riverside Convention Center this year for both interior landscaping and holiday decorating services. Ambius Designer, Chris Karl, and the Ambius Los Angeles team enjoyed designing the 16-foot holiday tree in the convention center’s entry tower. The tree’s color scheme was selected to compliment the room’s 13-foot chandelier. The tree was also featured on the cover of the December-January edition of Riverside Magazine.
The Ritz-Carlton (San Francisco, CA)
Puttin’ Up the Ritz: Our Bay Area team designed and installed a 35-foot tree at The Ritz-Carlton in the San Francisco neighborhood of Nob Hill. Designers Laura Burns-Lambert and Jon LaDow collaborated to decorate this incredible Christmas tree.
Rosewood Hotel Georgia (Vancouver, BC)
Ambius Vancouver helped the historic Rosewood Hotel Georgia ring the holidays in style with brilliantly designed decorations, including a tree festooned with 200 Swarovski crystals. The project led by Ambius Designer, JOanne Craft, was happy to attend the tree lighting ceremony and celebrate the start of the holidays with the Hotel Georgia staff.
Marriott Marquis (Washington, DC)
This lovely Christmas tree welcomes guests inside the Marriott Marquis hotel in Washington, DC. Our Washington, DC branch is fortunate to decorate some of the nation’s capital historic buildings. Last year, we posted a photo blog featuring some of Ambius’ lovely decorations throughout the city.
Cooks Children’s Hospital (Fort Worth, TX)
Ambius Designer, Patti Moody, and the Ambius Dallas team decorated the atrium of Cooks Children’s Hospital with this charming winter scene featuring Christmas trees, a winter castle, North Pole Express mailbox and jolly snowmen. We hope the Christmas Castle warms the hearts of hospital patients, visitors and staff this holiday season!
