Christmas Dreams Garden Tour
I’m Dreaming of a… Fantasy … Whimsical … Traditional … Magical … Classic Car … Christmas. Each Garden Decorated to Reflect a Dream.
Punta Gorda Garden Club’s Holly Days – tour with a twist will be held Friday and Saturday December 3-4, 2021, from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. Grab your pals, your sunbonnets, and your car keys!
We’re mixing it up this year — although keeping many of our traditions for our Holly Days tour. Our planning started very early in the year and considering the COVID situation we put on our thinking hats and came up with a delightful plan for this year’s event.
We’re Hosting a Garden Walk, one that’s so much more than a regular garden walk, and so much like our usual Holly Days event. So, here’s a peek at our plans. It will involve some driving as you go from one garden to another, and unlike our home tour, it is not limited to Punta Gorda’s Historic District. From a garden in the historic overlay, to a garden in Punta Gorda Isles, to a garden on the south side of Punta Gorda, to Deep Creek, to Riverside Drive in Punta Gorda, we are presenting a tour of six (6) beautiful gardens. But that is not enough for the Punta Gorda Garden Club! Plants will be identified; gardens will be completely decorated for Christmas with our usual handmade and natural materials items. And poinsettias will be available for purchase. You will also receive a treat bag with our homemade cookies. We love our traditions and know you do too. There may have never been a tour like what we have planned for you. And, in addition to all that, we are expanding our craft sales greatly so you will be able to purchase homemade items for your Christmas gifts that at each location.
We are so happy to be back this year and are working hard to deliver a twist, something unusual and fun. All we need is you—and your friends. Mark your calendar the dates are Friday and Saturday, December 3-4, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Ticket donation is $20.00 and may be purchased at the gardens or in advance through our treasurer. Email email@example.com for reservations or to pay by credit card or check in advance of the tour.

2019 Holly Days Home Tour
2018 Holly Days Home Tour
Punta Gorda Garden Club’s 25th annual Holly Days Home Tour, Silver Bells, was held November 30 and December 1, 2018. This endeavor supports all of the club’s local, state and national projects. We are grateful for the community support that allows us to provide scholarships to graduating seniors and our local projects. Our members, working in teams, design around a central overarching theme. Using only fresh and dried natural materials, we decorated four homes in the Punta Gorda Historic District and the First United Methodist Church.
This holiday event began in 1992 when the club was asked to help celebrate Punta Gorda’s 100-year anniversary by making wreaths for eight homes. The Holly Days Home Tour was then started in 1993 and has remained an annual club tradition, with the exception of the year 2004, when it was cancelled due to the severity of the hurricane.
The Home Tour includes the sale of poinsettias and tour-goers are treated to punch and homemade holiday cookies baked by club members.
Please enjoy photos of our Home Tour. A special thanks to Janet Robinson for the photos.
