ATKINSON — The Atkinson Garden Club will hold the 2012 Annual Greens Sale Friday, Nov. 30, and Saturday, Dec. 1, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Once again, the Atkinson Community Center at 4 Main St. will be transformed by club members into a fragrant and festive greens market, where all manner of homemade offerings abound.
Pre-orders are strongly suggested for wreaths of all sizes, balsam, pine or laurel roping by the yard, and boughs of boxwood, holly or fir by the pound.
There will be centerpieces of fresh greens, decorative accents and candles. Cheerful mugs brimming with fresh arrangements are the perfect hostess gift or accent for a small space.
Red, burgundy and eggshell are the hues of the club’s hand-tied bows, available as a single purchase or as an accompaniment to swags, wreaths and patio greens.
Kissing balls and tabletop holly trees have become two of the club’s best sellers, and should be pre-ordered as well, to ensure the color selections of ribbons and bows and quantities of buyers’ choice.
Mrs. Claus’ Closet always offers a host of small items perfect for gifts or decoration — some new and some gently used. In addition, each year club members outdo themselves preparing a lavish, themed gift basket, bestowed on the winner of the holiday raffle.
Orders should be placed soon, by completing and depositing forms found at Kimball Library or the Atkinson Community Center, mailed in to the AGC, PO Box 571, Atkinson, or phoned in to Catherine Persson at 362-6013.
