Season’s Greetings 2020!

The Driftwood Garden Club wishes you Peace, Love, Hope, and Joy during this Holiday Season.  Since we can’t have a Holiday House Tour due to Covid19, please share some pictures with us.  Stay warm, stay safe, stay healthy!  Happy New Year 2021!

Wreaths for Seniors

Twenty-seven DCG members created one-of-a-kind wreaths for seniors in the Bagged Lunch Program at the Council on Aging (COA). For the past five years, members have worked together at the COA, but this year the task was performed at homes because of COVID-19 protocols. These constraints didn’t slow down our dear members: they picked up bare wreaths, decorated them beautifully, and then delivered them to COA for distribution.

Gifts from The Sea at the King Hooper Mansion– December 2020

For over ten years the Driftwood Garden Club has collaborated with other garden clubs in Marblehead to decorate the historic King Hooper Mansion, home of the Marblehead Arts Association, for the holiday season.

This year talented DGC members Laurie Boggis and Ginny von Rueden designed and installed the display in the first-floor dining room. Their ‘Gifts From The Sea’ silver-themed décor includes fallen branches, driftwood, starfish, sea urchins, shells, beach stones, and hermit crabs found on Cape Cod. Foliage sprays include different types of artemisia, dried cow parsley, and rose hips…wired together and sprayed silver. The ‘Gifts From The Sea’ display is gorgeous!

Please join the preview of holiday décor on Friday, December 4th, 2020, from 5-7 PM to enjoy all the decorated rooms, current MAA art exhibits, and see some of your gardening friends!
