Christmas at Ladew Gardens
The 1747 Manor House at Ladew Gardens, located in Monkton, Md., was recently transformed with a holiday theme of “Christmas Through the Ages.” Garden clubs and volunteers worked to decorate each room to give the lower level of the historic building a festive feel.
The Elizabethan Room, decorated by Jeanne Graham of Blue Sage, featured elaborated floral treatments, Christmas lights and evergreen garland. Mason’s Crew decorated the drawing room in a 1940’s style with old fashion tinsel hanging from a Christmas tree as part of their topical approach. The kitchen, decorated by the St. George’s Garden Club, featured a topiary centerpiece on the table.
