RYE DRIFTWOOD GARDEN CLUB SPONSORS ANNUAL HOLIDAY GREENS WORKSHOP and SALE
Fresh cut pine and boxwood, brilliant red holly, gilded seed pods, antique vases, silver bows and glittering ornaments – all of these delightful materials will be used to create festive holiday arrangements at the Rye Driftwood Garden Club’s annual Holiday Greens Workshop and Sale.
This year’s much anticipated event takes place Saturday, December 8th at the Rye Congregational Church, 580 Washington Road, Rye, NH. 03870. Dozens of fresh holiday arrangements will be made by the Club members in the morning. They will be available for purchase between 12:00 pm and 3:00 that afternoon.
Garden club members raid their gardens for fresh greens and native dried materials to create a wide range of arrangements for table and floor, wreaths, swags for front doors, boxwood trees, candle rings and outdoor arrangements. Prices start as little as $5, and many sizes are available. Bundles of greens and handmade bows may be purchased.
A Holiday Treasures table offers many holiday items to enhance your home or give as a gift such as an antique child’s sleigh, original Dickens lighted Christmas houses and unique ornaments. In addition, this year’s sale features a Bake Sale with delicious, homemade goodies to satisfy your sweet tooth.
The always popular boxwood trees may be preordered on the club’s website at https://www.ryenhgardenclub.org/holiday-greens-sale. The trees are made from locally grown boxwood and are ready for you to decorate to match your holiday décor. Prices are $35 for a large tabletop boxwood tree and $18 for teacup size. The deadline for preordering is Dec. 1st.
All purchases at the Holiday Greens Sale help to fund the Club’s speakers’ and giving back programs. RDGC awards landscaping grants to help area organizations beautify public spaces, maintains multiple public gardens and flower boxes in Rye, and has provided scholarships to the UNH Plant Camp! and horticulture majors at the UNH Thompson School each year.
Be sure to mark your calendars for this exciting Holiday Greens Workshop and Sale. It’s a great way to get into the holiday spirit!
