While we don’t tend to think too much about our own holiday decorating until right after Thanksgiving (that’s because we’re so busy with everyone else’s floral needs!), we did get into the holiday spirit early this year with an event at Nielsen’s Florist in Darien sponsored by our great friends at Connecticut Cottages & Gardens.
and proceeds from a fabulous raffle benefited A Better Chance, which provides academic scholarships and housing in Darien to six highly motivated minority high school girls from inner city areas.
A great time was had by all, feasting on delicious tidbits and toasting with Nicolas Feuillate Brut Rose – and the beautifully styled Christmas trees added the perfect festive touch. None of this would have been possible without the amazing staff at Nielsen’s and the support of wonderful friends – what a stylish way to start the holidays!
P.S. For more pictures of the event, visit our new blogging friend, the lovely Stacey, at Quintessence!
