In keeping with the Garden Club’s desire to share with the public the rich,
historic aspects of St. Augustine,
walk back in time and experience the charm, warmth and grandeur
of the holiday season in the nation's oldest city, as we celebrate
"Christmas in the City of Lights"

The Garden Club invites you to enjoy the history of our town through our
Tour of Homes by visiting six private homes in the
Historic Downtown dating from the 1800s.

The eye-catching seasonal decorations and floral arrangements
throughout this walking Tour will be composed of natural materials,
designed and hand crafted by members of The Garden Club of St. Augustine
to support the decor of the individual home they grace.

Tickets are $30 (non-refundable) and go on sale
October 1st.
( Location of the homes on the Tour can be found on the map on the back of the ticket).

Your ticket will include Afternoon Tea (hosted by L

which features delicious homemade treats and beautifully
hand designed items created by our members.
