On November 12, the Marco Island Center for the Arts, Calusa Garden Club and Marco Island Florist co-hosted “Your Holiday Home,” an evening event that featured three kiosks where designers provided “how to” demonstrations of holiday decorating and designs. Over 50 attendees enjoyed wine and appetizers as they moved around the gallery from kiosk to kiosk, learning the tips and techniques of new holiday design themes. Two lucky winners won door prizes of a family membership tothe Marco Island Center for the Arts and a floral design from Marco Island Florist.
The club’s next community event will be “Tea by Design,” a festive four-course tea with floral demonstrations by famous designer Anthony Swick, co-owner of Bay Bouquet in Tampa. The fundraiser, to benefit junior gardeners’ camperships to Camp Wekiva, will be held at the Marco Island Yacht Club on January 21 at 11:30 AM. Tickets are just $55 each.
