Junior League, McArdle’s Raise Funds For Community Projects

On Nov. 9, the Junior League of Greenwich held its first pre-event for The Enchanted Forest. The Enchanted Forest is the Junior League’s largest fund-raiser taking place Nov. 20 to 22 at the Hyatt Regency Greenwich. This year, in addition to all of the decorated trees and gingerbread creations, the event will also display decorated wreaths that will be available for sale. These wreaths were created in partnership with McArdle’s Florist and Garden Center. McArdle’s provided the amazing décor on the wreaths using their design techniques. Sixteen Junior League volunteers took part in a design class taught by Michael Derouin at McArdle’s and learned how to create a statement piece with all artificial materials so that the beauty will last through the holiday season. read more...
