What made you realize there’s a need for a modern tree that is more like a piece of f ine art?

D

Tell us about your newest tree with the LED illuminated lights with the option to change colors:

M

I didn’t realize that the tree would resonate with people until I unveiled them at the Denver Modernism Show in 2011. It was then that I discovered that the trees resonated with modern design enthusiasts. A part of the marketplace was looking for an alternative to the traditional artif icial Christmas tree. “Finally a tree that reflected their modern design sense.”.

M

Mat t Bliss

The tree is illuminated by a single LED spotlight that sits on the floor pointing up at the tree rings. The result is magical. Shadows and reflections dance onto the walls and ceiling throughout the room. This year we have released the new Modus LED spotlight that will allow the customer to select any color or the rainbow spectrum by phone app and remote. The LED allows you to set the mood you want and change it as your mood changes. In addition there are a dozen color cycles to choose f rom and the new LED will even dance to music!

D

We are so excited to feature you and your incredible Modern Christmas Trees Matt. Please tell us about yourself and how this came about:

M

I’m a third generation Colorado native. I live in Denver, Colorado and run Modern Christmas Trees out of my home. The tree was originally designed by my Grandpa Lawrence “Bud” Stoecker in 1966. He was an engineer who did projects for NASA before he started his own A-f rame Cabin business building hundreds of cabins throughout the Rocky Mountains. He made several trees for the family f rom the 1960’s-70’s. He was diagnosed with Alzheimers in 2010. In 2011, I decided to update his tree as a tribute to him and show the world his contribution to modern design.

D

Tell us about a story f rom a customer that touched you:

M

One of the most rewarding parts of sharing the trees are the stories I receive f rom customers all over the world. Their experience of owning a tree and how it impacted their holiday. One story came f rom a man who had purchased the tree for his wife. He sent me an email with a photo of his tree in their home. The message said “Thank you for continuing your Grandpa’s legacy and sharing the trees”. He went on to say that his wife has adored the trees for years. He purchased the tree for her and stated he wanted to provide her a special Christmas knowing this in all likelihood would be her last. What product creates a response like this? Makes me proud!

Shark Tank has a wonderful experience! It forced me to learn every aspect of my business. I watched every episode of the show and wrote down every question that sharks asked and studied the “right” answers. I then made life sized cardboard cutouts and placed them in the appropriate seats in my basement and practiced my pitch hundreds of times. It worked! After spending over an hour pitching and negotiating with the sharks I landed on a deal with Barbara Corcoran. She has been a great partner!

modernchristmastrees.com

Tell us what type of person usually will cherish your product:

We have learned exactly who our customers are by talking with them and asking questions. They have a sophisticated design sense and a desire to make the holidays special and memorable for their family and f riends. They often live in major cities across the US. In many cases they live in codos. The tree solves their problem of space and storage as the tree collapses flat. The other major market is commercial applications including luxury hotels and business lobbies. We have tree installations at The Disneyland Hotel, Ritz Carlton, Four Seasons, and the Fairmount Hotel in Dubai.

What are your goals for Modern Christmas Trees over the next 5 years?

Over the next 5 years we will continue to focus on our “true fans” creating products that resonate with them and continue you to try and improve on the trees. Continue to grow the business and open up international markets. Triumph against all odds. photo: JC Buck

I’m a Classic Man - Charles Heidsieck Champagne Maia Parish

Charles Heidsieck loved fashion. He embodied contemporary French glamour. He was known for the classic cut of his attire and his charismatic demeanor. Charles also happened to own a Champagne house. Charles Heidsieck is the smallest of the Grandes Marques Champagne houses. Established in 1851, Charles Heidsieck’s house has a great reputation for producing award-winning Champagne. Over the past 20 years, cellarmasters at Charles have not only increased the quality but have managed to establish the house as one of the primer brands of the world. Their Blanc des Milenaires 2006 is considered one of the greatest of all Blanc de Blancs within the Champagne World. Charles Heidsieck’s house has become the darling of critics and wine collectors. The house enjoyed great success under the legendary Regis Camus and is now under the watchful eye of Theirry Roset. The US ambassador of Charles Heidsieck is Philippe André, Managing Partner of Folio Fine Wines. Their production and popularity have increased under these powerhouse individuals. The house is now considered to be one of the finest of all champagne producers. Rumor has it that Charles Heidsieck has ties to Denver. He was an avid traveler and made the Transatlantic Voyage, from France to the US, four times. This was a big deal back in the day. However, these visits led to relationships that we not so favorable, and Mr. Heidesick found himself in almost financial ruin. One of his agents, David Bayuad made a series of bad investments, and years later, his brother Thomas Bayaud, after whom Bayaud Avenue is named, gave Heidsieck 127 parcels of land. Heidsieck used the land to pay off his debts and save his brand. Charles was a gifted entertainer and used his skills to propel his Champagne during the American Civil War. He made the first of four visits and was embraced by socialites and politicians in New York, Washington, and New Orleans, among other cities. Where is Champagne? Champagne is an actual region of France. Think of it as a state. In order for a wine to be classified as Champagne, it must come from this region’s exclusivity. Anything made outside of Champagne is considered sparkling wine. The wine uses three primary grapes, Chardonnay (white ), Pinot Noir ( red ), Pinot Muiere ( red ). The wine is transformed through secondary fermentation and only when these requirements are met, then the wine can be labeled as champagne. Methode Traditional, Champenoise, Methode Classique are all terms used for this process. What does Cuvee mean? In the world of Champagne, you will hear terms like “Cuvee” and Prestige Cuvee. The term refers to the top wine that a Champagne house can produce. Cuvees represent the finest style of wine and will be reflected within the price. For example, Prestige Cuvee could cost up to four to six times as much.

A Frisco Frolic Trisha Ventker


Aaah, Frisco. I so enjoyed discovering a wide breadth of Colorado history in this small mountain town set 9,097 feet, nestled in the towering Rocky Mountains. At first glance Frisco seems more like a welcoming village with an abundance of natural treasures and cultural riches, and an ideal place to unplug and recharge. The Friscan’s have preserved the town with an architectural mix spanning a century with a dozen restored buildings including the Schoolhouse Museum and the Frisco Jail that found a home in the downtown Frisco Historic Park & Museum. Only just over 70 miles from Denver, the town has hosted everyone from Native Americans, French, Spaniards, and Mountain Men to a gold rush in 1854 followed by a silver boom in 1879, and of course visitors like you and me. Named after the narrow gauge, St. Louis/San Francisco Railway, Frisco has a robust medley of local cuisines and accommodations set among the expansiveness of a vast landscape that to me is intense and dazzlingly with changing colors and complex weather patterns. Traveling with my husband Tom, son Tristan, and the Mowery family, we booked a large stylish penthouse condo at Summit Mountain Rentals. The location, ideal for strolling Frisco’s Main Street, tabbed “The Main Street of the Rockies,” is perfect for chatting with today’s Friscans. The town is also the ultimate setting for outdoor adventures: Frisco offers 2,500 acres of skiable terrain, 140 marked hiking trails, ice skating, tubing, a large Nordic Center on the shores of the Dillon Reservoir at the eastern end of Main Street, family-friendly snow-mobiling, and incredibly four world-class ski resorts nearby, making it a great launching destination for a great launching destination for skiers with ambitious skiers. Dining Frisco A travel bonus for me has always been experiencing the brisk values of homebased cuisine. Our dining choices were on Main Street and locally owned. Greco’s Pastaria noted for New York style pizza which caught my taste buds. Being a long-time New Yorker, the wide slices, hand-tossed with a thin crust were New York style delightful. Breakfast at the busy Butterhorn Bakery & Café has been a local favorite from the time they opened in 1978, with pastries and bread baked daily. Uptown on Main converted from an old tire shop in the mid 90’s is an ideal dinner choice. My Spinach and Kale Salad with strawberries and pecans and a hefty sprinkle of balsamic vinaigrette dressing was a winner. Bread & Salt, open till 2 p.m. features breakfast and lunch dishes such as a earthy butternut squash scramble and vegetable hash with beets and goat cheese. Spending a few delightful days here it’s easy to see that Frisco is preserving the town’s heritage on a human scale with a modern twist of adventure, and is another mountain-high Colorado gem.

Brow trends are constantly changing. Thin, round arches rocked the 1920s. Fuller, less rounded was 1940s fabulous. Thin, slightly arched returned in the 1960s-1970s. While over-tweezed, mis-shaped brows crushed in the 1990s-2000s. Late 2019 to 2021 have been known for windswept, brushed-up brows for a bit, the style has since settled down into gently sculpted territory slated for 2022. Sculpting vs. Shaping

A sculpted brow is mapped and measured, waxed to the perfect shape, and topped with a semi-permanent color to enhance definition. A shaped brow is mapped and measured, waxed to the perfect shape, and left in its natural state. Henna or Tinting can last 2-5 weeks depending on your at-home skincare routine. At first it may seem dark to many, but in a few days it will look the perfect color. Do Serums Work?

Serums are highly effective with regard to eyebrow restoration. I recommend BROWFOOD Clear Brow Enhancing Gelfix. This clear brow gel’s powerful nano-peptide blend helps condition healthier, fuller looking brows while keeping your brow styled. Another product I suggest is Lash by HYDROPEPTIDE.
