The Marion Garden Group will hold its annual one-day Holiday Boutique on Saturday, December 15, at the Marion Music Hall on Front Street in Marion. The doors open at 9:30 am, and this year the sale will conclude at 11:30 am. We encourage people to get there early! Eager buyers gather early, and there is always a mad rush when the doors open.
“Our members have been busy for months creating beautiful decorations and elegant arrangements inspired by nature and our seaside location for this highly-anticipated event,” said MGG’s President, Kitsie Howard. “Every year people are waiting at the door for us to open and things go quickly! Word has already spread about the great selection of festive, hand-made, holiday decorations on offer this year. The talent and dedication of our membership is inspiring.”
Throughout the fall, Marion Garden Group members attend in-home workshops and create handmade ornaments, arrangements and decorative gifts for the sale. Workshops this year included: holiday lanterns, natural birdhouses and festive nests, piney paddles and lobster buoys, sea glass wreaths, seaside garlands, holiday hurricanes, shell trees and ornaments. The week prior to the sale, Marion Garden Group members create table arrangements, garlands, wreaths and floral decorations with fresh greens to be sold at the boutique.
In addition to creating holiday fare for the boutique, earlier this week the Marion Garden Group membership gathered for two days to create over 150 wreaths for members of the community who pre-ordered them. Each wreath was hand delivered as soon as they were completed. All you have to do is drive through the tri-town area to admire the group’s handiwork.
