About Us

The Dr. Forrest L. Flashman Guild

The Festival of Trees was created to design, decorate and auction Christmas trees to benefit Seattle Children’s Hospital. Over the years, we have generated over $11 million to benefit Uncompensated Care.

Our talented membership includes artists, decorators, professionals, floral designers, jewelry designers and craftsmen. Many have designed for Seattle’s most prestigious clients; creating for VIPs, dignitaries and royalty.

All of our guild members donate their time and expertise because of their dedication to Seattle Children's.

Today we attract interested women from all over the Puget Sound area who love to design and/or decorate unique Christmas trees and other holiday items. Contact Us if you are interested in joining our guild.
