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 and traditions to pass down generation to generation. When our designer showed me her rendering of this idea, it brought me to tears...It's perfectly simple and sweet. The image of a tire swing hanging on the low branches of a tall sturdy Christmas tree, remind me of the child in all of us, especially at the holidays. Every time you order a Family Tree candle this holiday season, you too will enjoy this simple image stamped on our muslin bags. Let it remind you to not lose that child-like wonder and awe this time of year and enjoy your family.
