Before your holiday guests arrive, spend a night in your guest room. This way you will know if the windows are drafty and you need extra blankets, if the light bulbs are too dim to read by, or if your guest pillows are just horrible and need to be replaced.

It's another #MuseumMonday at Morven Park! Since medieval times, evergreens like Boxwood and pine boughs have been incorporated into winter decorating. The Davises, in keeping with ancient tradition, used greens available to them in their gardens for holiday decorating, and we continue that tradition, only with artificial greens to protect our historic furnishings. Come see for yourself! #TakeATour #MorvenPark #holidaytraditions #evergreens

#WednesdayWisdom from Alexandra McKay, the Events Coordinator at Morven Park --
As you plan for your holiday party or open house, remember that when it is colder people tend to drink more whiskey, red wine, and dark beers, and less gin, vodka, and rose.

Morven Park : Support Us : AnniversaTree

Looking to make a difference this holiday season? Help us replace more than 100 of our beautiful trees decimated by the region’s infestation of Emerald Ash Borer.

If you have driven or walked through the Park lately you've likely seen several trees marked with ribbons and "X" marks. These are diseased trees that must come down. The number of trees we lose every year is in the hundreds, but this year has been particularly devastating and our Ash trees have been hardest hit.

You can help us replenish the lost trees by making a donation to our AnniversaTree campaign. Details and donor info available at: https://morvenparkorg.presencehost.net/support/

#AnniversaTree #thisplacematters #EveryDonationHelps

As part of our celebration of Morven Park’s 50th anniversary of opening to the public, we’re launching the AnniversaTree giving program and setting an ambitious goal of planting at least 50 trees. This is an exciting, new way to demonstrate your commitment to the beauty of this iconic Park.

#MuseumMonday #WinmillCarriageMuseum
In the 1955 film adaptation of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “Oklahoma!,” characters Curly and Laurey depart for their honeymoon in a Surrey after dreaming about a carriage just like it. Many visitors can’t help but sing along to the catchy lyrics of “Surrey with the Fringe on Top” as they take photographs inside Morven Park’s own Surrey with the fringe! Come see how it compares to the film on Saturday and Sunday from 12:00pm-5:00pm in the Winmill Carriage Museum at Morven Park.

#WeddingWednesday tip: With all of the party invitations that pop-up this time of year, you and your betrothed have lots of opportunities to see how others host more formal events and choose what kind of wedding you want.

After the holidays, sit down and talk about which party you enjoyed the most. Was it the intimate multi-course Christmas Eve Dinner, the elegant black-tie dinner at your office party, or the hors d'oeuvres heavy dance party on New Year's Eve?

Assuming you two agree, you now know what you want your special day to be like and can pick your venue, caterer, etc. accordingly.

Speaking of venues ... don't forget that Morven Park is the perfect place for a wedding. Email [email protected] for details and to schedule a tour.

#MuseumMonday and #JohnWayne all in one post!

Many visitors to the Winmill Carriage Museum recognize our Irish Jaunting Cart, similar to the one used in the 1952 film “The Quiet Man” starring John Wayne and Maureen O’Hara. The carriage is designed for courting couples to go out driving with a chaperone in between them, but many are still in use today by tourists in Ireland. Take a jaunt over to Morven Park and take a closer look this weekend!

Using a real tree this holiday season? Remember that a freshly-cut tree can consume a gallon of water in 24 hours! When you are done with your cut tree you can it add to your native landscape to create a habitat.
