2019 Deck the Trees


Creative Minds

The theme was given "Go Tell It On the Mountain" for the 9th Annual Deck The Trees event.   A committee of creative volunteers,  Gayle Bromner, Barb Callaway, Jean Chamberlain, Allison Curtin, Roynan Jones, Jo Langevin, Tracy Munn, Kate Ramsey & Lyndall Noyes-Brownell came up with a design.   In November they will decorate the tree at the Monte Vista Hotel.   


About the Event

The public is invited to the hotel in Black Mountain from Dec. through Jan. from 10 am to 9 pm.  Beautiful and unique hand-decorated Christmas trees will bring joy and inspiration to all who visit.    



Vote by cash or by check for your favorite tree helps to raise funds for the Fuel Fund of the Swannanoa Valley Christian Ministry. 100% of the funds generated through this annual celebration will go to SVCM. 

2019 Deck the Town

With Greenery, Roping, & Bows

When you stroll Town Square or the historic district of Black Mountain, you can hear "It's  beginning to look a lot like Christmas..." playing in your head.  

In December, the Beautification Committee will be busy decking out the greenery and bows throughout the town.  It will be seen as you enter the Town by the Welcome Signs to Garden Sites and Town Square. 

Below are some pictures of the committee elves decking the town with greenery.

Not a member, come join us this year and you will get into the spirit of the season.

2019 Fall Decorating

Pumpkins, FunKids & Cornstalks ~ oh my!

Fall is in full swing in Black Mountain so that can only mean one thing ~  fall decorating is coming to town.  

Visit Town Square now as our favorite couple, Rocky & Rockette have returned to their favorite  fall destination.  Joyce & Mary have outdone themselves creating  these life sized funcrows. 

Over several members of the Black Mountain Beautification Committee spent their Saturday morning transforming downtown Black Mountain into a fall  spectacular. Rocky & Rockette, the iconic scarecrows that oversee  Town Square each fall, were joined this year by several other “funcrows”  in adult and kid sizes.  Two funcrows were  assembled by students and teachers at the Black Mountain Primary School  and placed by the signs welcoming all to Black Mountain. 

Other areas of  town were also decorated with haybales, corn shocks pumpkins, decorative  gourds and fall mums, including the “Welcome to Black Mountain” signs  that greet residents and visitors. The decorations would not be complete  without the giant spider looking out over our town creating the perfect  photo opportunity for visitors to the square.
