The holiday season is a magical time—we make it even more so at HMNS Sugar Land with Jingle Tree!
Jingle Tree features a showcase of beautifully decorated trees that will be up for bid in a week-long, on-line silent auction. Our special touch? The trees are sponsored and decorated by Fort Bend designers, museum supporters, local celebrities and artistic visionaries. Now in its fifth year, the event hosts close to 1000 participants annually and we invite you to join the fun.

So, there’s a holiday tree and décor auction…how does that work?

Jingle Tree holiday trees and décor are available for purchase through an auction on your smart phone. The trees, wreaths, and swags are sponsored and decorated by Fort Bend designers, museum supporters, local celebrities and artistic visionaries. Each displays a unique and creative theme to fit any style or taste.

To participate, you can attend one of three festive events during Jingle Tree week and begin bidding on the item of your choice. Regular museum visitors can also join the auction fun anytime that week. Connecting to the auction site is easy! You make bids whenever you like or “buy it now” when you first see it. You’ll be notified on your phone anytime you’ve been out-bid.

The décor auction ends at 8:00 pm on Thursday evening, November 15, during the Jingle, Jingle Mix and Mingle cocktail event. Again, you don’t have to be present to bid and win, but it’s great fun to count down to the end and claim your tree that night. Delivery is available for a minimal additional fee and all proceeds support the education mission of the museum.
