The rooms of historic Carrick Hill are set to overflow with Christmas spirit this year with a series of special floral arrangements with a Christmas theme entitled Glorious Flowers. The displays are on show from Wednesday 29 November to Sunday 3 December.
The blooms and much of the foliage for the show will come from Carrick Hill’s own gardens and will be arranged by Carrick Hill’s four floral design teams, who are known as The Petals, under the guidance of Caroline Wotton from The Flower Room. Caroline is also the florist for Alfred James, who are sponsoring the display. The Carrick Hill Petal teams are normally rostered to gather flowers and foliage from the garden to decorate the house.
Carrick Hill Director Christine Schloithe said, ‘previous floral events at Carrick Hill have proved very popular and this event will be no exception. This year’s focus brings Christmas to the forefront with a stunning array of floral and festive displays and decorations.’
‘Additionally, we’re opening the display into one evening on Thursday 30 November where visitors can experience the house opened up and lit both inside and out. That evening the displays will be accompanied by a performance by the Adelaide Youth Orchestra and the café will remain open for dinner.’
Normal Carrick Hill opening times are Wednesday to Sunday 10.00am to 4.30pm. Entry to the gardens is free, admittance to the house is $17 Adults, $12 Concession and $36 Families.
All tickets to the evening viewing, 5.30pm – 7.30pm on Thursday 30 November are $17. Bookings are available to be purchased here.
