The Keyport Garden Club is decorating the Governor’s study at Drumthwacket,  for the holiday open houses at the official residence of New Jersey’s chief executive, according to a statement by First Lady Mary Pat Christie.

Keyport’s garders cut and dried hydrangeas and luminaria from members’ gardens, which club designers artfully turned into elegant holiday pieces.  Preserved cream colored roses and orchids are interspersed throughout our arrangements to add elegance and brightness to the Governor’s Study.  Dogwood red twigs, also from a Keyport Garden Club member, creates a gentle flow to the arrangements.  Also, the white vestibule is decorated by the club to entice visitors into the Governor’s Study.

Also participating in the holiday decorating of the mansion are garden clubs from Bayhead, Mountain Lakes ,Warren, Morristown, Somerset Hills and for the first time, the Garden Club of America.
