  • Creating the perfect candle takes five years.

    Almost 5 years ago, my husband Clay and I were looking for a hobby to share together. Something "easy" we could enjoy on a weeknight. We were out shopping one day and I purchased some well-known brand candles. I could tell Clay's wheels were turning. As I was trying to figure out what scent to buy, he was looking at all the choices and said, "I bet we could make candles."  SO...Later that day we decided to purchase a candle-making kit from a large craft store and give it a try.  "Try," is exactly what it was...As we started the...

  • The child in all of us this time of year.

    When I was thinking about something special to bring you for the holidays, I had an image in my mind of our logo...but our logo with a twist. Family Tree embraces the large sprawling tree silhouette with a tire swing because of the nostalgic ties to family memories this image evokes. There is an innocence and timelessness to this symbol. I thought how unique it would be to have our very own CHRISTMAS tree with a tire swing for the holiday collection. For me, Christmas is my favorite time of year to enjoy family and make new memories with stories...

  • It's a Family Tree Fairytale

    What started out as a kitchen hobby, I never thought had the potential to grow into a business that acquired such a beautiful space. We are so very blessed to have found a home in the Alma Diem building in West Knoxville. This space truly offers inspiration for our future product, scents and branding. The story of how all of this happened, would take multiple blogs...let's just say, if you ever doubt God is divinely orchestrating people, places and opportunities you are mistaken. We know from this space, blessings will flow! We look forward to meeting vendors and hosting guests...

We gather round tables and fireplaces to share stories that may strike a certain chord with many in the room. Togetherness, closeness and a bond shared among family and friends cannot be replaced by a device or today's newest trend. Family is forever and so are the memories you hold of loved...
