Middlebury Garden Club decks out the Ilsley Library
MIDDLEBURY — After having decorated the Middlebury Community House for the holidays for many years, this year the Middlebury Garden Club decorated the Ilsley Library with the thought that more people would get to enjoy the decorations.
The Better Middlebury Partnership donated the two beautiful wreaths hung on the two large pillars in front of the library. Doug Sinclair of the Sinclair Family Tree Farm donated an enormous tree, which is decorated in red and gold with the theme “The Holidays Take Flight.”
Red cardinals are featured throughout the fresh arrangements and as ornaments on the tree. Jane Burton designed an elegant birdcage to further capture the theme. Tree ornaments of cut-out birds, made with beautifully decorated papers and pages from old books, were designed by Kate Tilton. Tilton led a team of Lorraine Abramson, Pat Morrow and Barbara Blodgett as well as many garden club members.
