Calusa Garden Club of Marco Island President Sandy Wallen and her husband Bill invited Garden Club members and spouses to celebrate the Christmas season at their beautiful waterfront home on the Marco River. As club members and spouses arrived, they were fascinated to see herons, egrets and pelicans settle for their nightly roost in the trees of the ABC Islands. The Wallens’ spacious home had been part of the 2018 Marco Island Christmas Home Tour a few days earlier, and was decorated lavishly for Christmas. The Wallens’ warm Mediterranean home colors of gold paired with various shades of blue were accented for Christmas with silver and gold.
