Nichols Garden Club to hold Holiday Boutique — pre-order mailbox cover

Nichols Garden Club members will gather immediately following Thanksgiving at the Starkweather House, 1773 Huntington Tpke., Trumbull, to make mailbox covers, wreaths, and centerpieces — something they have done for a quarter of a century and has become a holiday ritual for the club.

The mailbox covers are all unique, although they are based on the original design of the club founder Jean Horsey. There will also be many other beautifully crafted holiday items for sale

The Holiday Boutique will be held on Friday, Dec. 2, noon-8 p.m.; Saturday, Dec. 3, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

To pre-order a mailbox cover call 203-590-2232.

After the sale, the members will use their talents to decorate the streets of Nichols by hanging festive hand-crafted street swags along Huntington Turnpike.

Neighbors who plan to remove trees are asked for donations of evergreens. Variety is the key, spruce, pines, firs, arborvitae, and cedar, all work well in the arrangements.
