Welcome Your Guests with a Dried Flower Wreath

Handmade wreaths add warmth and classic charm to your home—and creating your own, customizing it using your favorite flowers, allows you to design a piece that is the perfect representation of your individual taste and style.

Simple changes can create drama and flair to reflect the season and give you added enjoyment of your wreath. The addition of foraged greens will extend the season of your wreath into the holidays.

A Tasty Addition to Your Thanksgiving Menu—The Tulip Tree Café’s Corn & Basil Tart!

The tradition of serving turkey and corn for Thanksgiving dates back to the time of the Pilgrims, and while our dinner menus may vary from family to family, you’ll usually find turkey, mashed potatoes, cranberries and corn as a part of the traditional Thanksgiving spread. This year, why not mix it up a little and swap out your bowl of corn with a beautiful corn tart!

Rich and delicious, this recipe from Tulip Tree Café is sure to please everyone at the table. It may even become a new tradition in your household. Served on a rough cut wood tray, the dish will be a show-stopper—next to the turkey of course!

Music in the Garden — A Resounding Success!

When a community joins forces, great things happen!

After hearing the about Caregiver Volunteers of Central Jersey's vision for the program Connections thru Music... an intergenerational program bringing music to those in our community with Alzheimer's and dementia, we at Calgo decided to support this important effort. The benefit Music in the Garden, held on Sunday, October 15, 2017, was our way to contribute.

We are overjoyed to let you know that over $12,000 was raised for Connection thru Music. Fran Pannella, the Alzheimer's Respite Care Program Manager, tells us that this amount “made a huge impact in making the dream of expanding Connection Thru Music [to Monmouth County] a reality…[it] will enable us to make the investment in staff time that is critical to the success of building and managing this program.”
