(Sandy-AP) -- Cover up your Bud Light cans. That's what organizers at the Festival of Trees are saying to one woman whose tree is on display.

Carole Robinson's display is named "Jingle Buds" and is constructed out of 15-hundred open Bud Light cans.

Organizers say they didn't want to offend her, but they're concerned about the message the tree sends. So they've asked her to cover part of it up.

Robinson says she's upset about what the finished product looks like and says she had even gotten permission before-hand for her idea.

But planners say the theme wasn't clear to them ahead of time.

However, Robinson has agreed to the compromise so her tree would stay on display and raise money for a good cause.
