Garden Club Holds Annual Christmas Luncheon

     The Monroeville Garden Club held their annual Christmas luncheon at Vanity Fair Golf and Tennis Club on Thursday, December 10, 2015.  The doors opened at 11:00 a.m. and guests were treated to appetizers of cheese straws, olive rollups, spinach dip with chips, mixed nuts, Mock Poinsettia Punch, and coffee.  Guests enjoyed visiting and looking at the different table decorations that had been set up by garden club members.

     At 12:00 p.m. a luncheon plate of chicken salad, fresh fruit, and a muffin was served.  During the lunch, a program on decorating for Christmas was given by Richard Stembridge of Bulkhead Interiors.  Mr. Stembridge demonstrated how to make a Christmas bow, how to use a bow to decorate a chair back and then he made a large centerpiece using fresh greenery.  He added "bling" to the arrangement to give it a more formal look.  At the end of the presentation, a drawing was held for the arrangement and Heather Gaston was the winner.

     The next garden club meeting will be January 14, 2016,  at the home of Patsy Wadlington.  Members should bring their favorite gardening books and/or gardening websites to share with other members.
