Bay Village Garden Club goes green

Bay Village Garden Club's "Holiday Greening" centerpiece.

’Tis the season, and for the Bay Village Garden Club it is a busy season indeed. Many of our service projects are in full swing – decorating our City Welcome signs, Christmas Wreaths for City Hall and Community Building doors, as well as the summertime Wolf Bridge and Gazebo. We also create small Christmas decorations for area shut-ins and cancer patients to brighten their holidays.

The effort we put into our service projects is free, but there is always a cost for materials. To raise funds for greenery, ribbons, bows, and ornaments, we hold our annual Holiday Greening sale.

The wreaths, centerpieces, and mini-boxwood trees are lovely, and in this writer’s humble opinion, worth far more than the $40 each asking price. Because Covid interrupted our former procedure of “make your own decoration,” we now offer just one kit – the centerpiece shown here. All other wreaths, mini-trees, and centerpieces are completely decorated items, ready to adorn your mantelpiece, holiday table, and welcome door.

Pre-orders for the wreath, centerpiece, and mini-tree are essential to keep our budget in line. You may obtain an order form by emailing us at Orders must be submitted by Dec. 1. Item pick-up is scheduled for Dec. 7 between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. We also offer decorated mugs, outdoor arrangements and small decorations for sale without pre-order – so drop by to have a look!

Our membership wishes all a wonderful holiday season – and of course, for all of us, a beautiful spring to welcome us back to our gardens. Many blessings to all.
