The Colonial Garden Club of Marlborough will kick off the holidays with the 34rd Annual Pear Tree Boutique on Saturday, December 1, from 11:00am to 1:00pm at the Whitcomb Middle School on Union Street in Marlborough. This immensely popular event features original, hand-crafted creations by talented club members and is the perfect place to select one-of-a-kind items for someone special, or yourself.
The Pear Tree Boutique is a fundraising tradition that supports the club’s many philanthropic activities, including its scholarship program and city beautification efforts. Club members have been working overtime to create a huge assortment of beautiful fresh green arrangements, wreaths, kissing balls, mantel pieces, gift baskets, hand-made ornaments, and much, much more. The 2012 event is shaping up to be the biggest and most creative Boutique yet.
As always, shoppers will find a wide array of fresh baked cookies and holiday treats available for purchase. For hungry shoppers or those looking for a chance to relax, the Boutique will have a luncheon menu that includes homemade soup, sandwiches, apple crisp, and more.
