Holiday cheer is in full swing at The Royal Poinciana Plaza in Palm Beach. The iconic retail destination will unveil this year’s surfboard Christmas tree and holiday decor, this time in collaboration with world-renowned designer Johnson Hartig, co-founder and creative director of Libertine. The festivities will commence on Thursday, December 2, at 6 p.m. The tree and decor will be on view through January 2.

Hartig’s design will mark The Royal’s first partnership with an award-winning fashion label and designer on the beloved project. Hartig’s use color, pattern, embellishment, and print seamlessly blend realism and fantasy, creating a feast for the senses. He paved the way for the current maximalist approach and continues to challenge the design world’s restrictions with each new collection.

“Partnering with The Royal Poinciana Plaza on this project has been such a cool experience for me,” said Hartig. “During a time when so much of the world seemed to come to a halt, Palm Beach continued to thrive and welcome visitors and transplants from New York, California, and beyond. My designs for the holiday tree capture the colorful and classic Palm Beach essence along with more edgy and urban prints representative of this new energy currently infusing the area.”

Hartig will unveil his design at a ceremonial tree lighting at 6 p.m. in the East Courtyard, with DJ Cat Shell spinning holiday beats nearby. Stick around for bubbles, bites, and a special appearance from Santa. Click here for more information about the festive fête.
