The Town of New Canaan was awash with beautifully creative flower arrangements over the weekend of October 7th – 9th, 2016 to celebrate the fourth New Canaan In Bloom event! Twenty nine stores up and down Elm Street welcomed 52 members of the New Canaan Garden to beautify their store windows,showcase artistic floral design ideas, and to say ‘thank you’ to our wonderful community.
The New Canaan In Bloom weekend festivities were kicked off with a Friday evening Preview Party at the lovely home of Tracy and Joe Merrill where 18 silent auction items were sold to help raise abundant funds for our newest endeavor, restoration of the parterre gardens at Waveny House, in partnership with the Waveny Park Conservancy.
