Holly & Ivy Luncheon and Holiday Boutique

It’s hard to believe that the holiday season passed by so fast. As we are gearing up for the new year, we are reflecting on some of our favorite events from December. Holly & Ivy Luncheon and Boutique was held Tuesday, December 5th at the Astor House. The sold-out event kicked off in the morning with holiday gift shopping, a prosecco reception, and a seated lunch at noon.

The Astor House was beautifully decorated with festive garland and was the perfect setting for an afternoon of jolly revelry among NYJL friends. With seasonal music playing in the background, guests enjoyed the boutique’s specially curated and unique holiday gifts and a savory luncheon menu. It was a wonderful day for all in attendance and a perfect way to kick off the holiday season!

Reflecting on the Holiday Season & How Golden Tree Supported the Community

There might not have been a better way to get into the holiday spirit than by doing some Christmas shopping at Golden Tree while supporting the charitable work of the New York Junior League. It was a great all-in-one Holiday Boutique making tackling your shopping list easier thanks to a large variety of vendors, offering an extensive array of products from jewelry and apparel to food and gifts for the home.

The three-day event started on Thursday night with the magnificent Silver Bell Soiree. Savory bites, cocktails, and live music added to the already festive atmosphere. Our president, Suzanne E. Manning, gave a champagne toast in the Roosevelt Room. The holiday cheer continued on Friday with the Holly Jolly Young Professionals Night and more shopping and fun activities on Saturday.

Golden Tree is one of the many events that the NYJL opens up to non-members to participate in to support our work in the community. The NYJL is kicking off 2018 with its 1st annual Wellness Day – the first event of its kind on Saturday, January 20th. Wellness Day will be a fundraising event to remember as our guests experience a moving and mindful start to the New Year. Be sure to check out all the details for the options to attend and participate. We hope to see you there!
