By Jan Jacobs
Hard to believe, but December is here again. That means it is time for the Orcas Island Garden Club’s annual Christmas Tea. It’s a special meeting in which members, past members and guests gather over tea served in a silver tea service, with sweets and appetizers brought by the members.
Rosemarie Altberg will be at the meeting to create stunning holiday arrangements. Rosemarie holds a BA in Art Education and an MA in Printmaking and Drawing. She is best known for design and development of floral displays enhancing the annual Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival. She will present various ideas for the holidays, and there will be demonstrations of how to create various items such as wreaths, garlands, and table arrangements.
The table centerpieces for the tables at the tea will be created by The Nest in Eastsound and given away by a drawing at the end of the meeting.
The meeting begins at 10:30 a.m. for the Christmas tea on December 12, in the Madrona Room of Orcas Center.
Come and kick off the holiday season with the Orcas Island Garden Club. For further information, see www.orcasislandgradenclub.org .
