The Southborough Gardeners club is holding its big annual fundraiser. This year, the popular Guest Day event will spotlight bountiful arrangements for your Thanksgiving tables that don’t use a cornucopia.

Maureen Christmas will demonstrate how to make floral designs “Beyond the Cornucopia”. As in past years, some lucky winners will get to take the arrangements home. Guests will also enjoy the holiday tea.

Before you save the date – make sure you note the spot. Unlike past years, Guest Day will be held at Trottier Middle School.

The event will be held the morning of Friday, November 10th.

(If you’re wondering, why is it being held at a school on a school day? November 10th is the official holiday day off in honor of Veterans Day, which falls on Saturday this year. So, parents, if you haven’t yet – you’ll want to mark that down, too!)

You can get the tickets at a discount rate if you purchase them in advance. The funds support the group’s support of town beautification and education.

Below is the announcement with more details. I’ve also included some beautiful examples of the guest’s work. 

With the holiday season soon approaching, the Southborough Gardeners (SG) invites you to attend their annual November Guest Day! This year’s program is entitled “Beyond the Cornucopia” by floral designer Maureen Christmas. It will be held on Friday, November 10th at Trottier Middle School, 49 Parkerville Rd. in Southborough.

The doors will open at 9:00 a.m. to enjoy a Holiday Boutique featuring numerous gift items handmade by the Southborough Gardeners. You will then experience a floral design presentation by Maureen Christmas beginning at 10:00. The morning will conclude with drawings for the floral designs, “revisiting” the Holiday Boutique, and enjoying a holiday tea featuring SG member-made tasty sweets and savories!

Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door. Proceeds for this event will benefit town beautification and education. Please contact Betsy Swartz, the program chair, for further information or to purchase tickets:
