The Garden Club of Evanston House Walk and Holiday Boutique will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Nov. 12.  This year’s tour theme, “Our Growing Tradition,” will celebrate four spectacular homes in the Evanston Lakeshore Historic District – including the landmarked Stone Porch by the Lake and Stone Terrace bed and breakfast properties – with decorative floral themes inspired by area topics from the early 1900s to the modern era. The Holiday Boutique will feature planted containers, home and garden decor, jewelry, holiday gifts, and much more.

Proceeds from this benefit will be used to promote conservation and education as well as The Garden Club of Evanston civic projects which include The Shakespeare Garden at Northwestern University, The Wildflower Trail at the Gross Point Lighthouse and the Evanston Township High School Arboretum Project. Tickets – at $65 early and $75 the day of – are available at or by calling Freddie Hoyt at 847-525-2131.
