Christmas Boutique
Salem Garden Club's annual Christmas Boutique is held the first weekend in December.  The Boutique features fresh wreaths, centerpieces, swags, boxwood trees, and a variety of holiday decorations and ornaments.  Each item is handmade by the members of the club.  The Boutique is a unique event and just the thing to find that something special to trim your own home for the holiday or to find a gift for someone special.  The money raised at this event is reinvested into the community through the Salem Garden Club's civic endeavors.

House Tour
Salem Garden Club members decorate one of the tour houses on the Christmas in Salem House Tour.  We garnish the selected home in accordance with the house's style and time period.  Decorations are handmade by the Garden Club members.  They consist of fresh greenery, floral arrangements, tree trimmings, and window dressings that emphasize the elegance and grace of the Historic Salem home.  Photos below show some of the beautiful arrangements created for  Emmerton House, the home of the Woman's Friend Society.

Garden Stroll
The Garden Stroll is a biennial event.  In July 2017, the Salem Garden Club presented "A Stroll Through the Gardens of Salem" in the McIntire Historic District.  Visitors strolled into and around some of the most charming gardens in the City of Salem.  Complimentary refreshments of lemonade and cookies were served to the strollers along the route and local musicians and artists were featured in several of the gardens.  Proceeds of the event help fund the many civic gardening projects and scholarship offered  by the Club.

Annual Dinner
In June the Salem Garden Club closes out their year with a dinner.  This year's event was held at the Hawthorne Hotel.  The new club officers were introduced to the attending members.  Ellen Sweet and Paula Contilli stepped down as presidents.  Meg McMahon and Tracy Rubin will be working together as presidents for the 2017-2019 Club seasons.
