Books in Bloom!


Books in Bloom is a partnership between Weymouth Garden Club and Tufts Library created to highlight a favorite book and complement it with beautiful flowers.

Participation to create a display is open to all: individuals, book groups, clubs, organizations, businesses, and families. Participants will choose a book from a personal collection or borrowed from the library, select a complimentary vase or container and fill it with fresh flowers to highlight the book's cover or theme. Props may be used to enhance and help interpret the book, but emphasis should be on the floral or plant arrangements.

Entries are not judged!
Use your imagination and have fun!
The preferred rule is: fresh flowers, plants, plant life, fruits or vegetables, though dried flowers are also acceptable.
Please note: no silk or plastic floral items.

Entry applications are not necessary.

Set up day is Thursday, March 1st from 12:30 PM until 8:30 PM at Tufts Library (upper level), 46 Broad Street at Weymouth Landing. Upon arrival, look for the Weymouth Garden Club guide wearing a pink shirt and name tag. Your guide will assist you in selecting a display space and entering your information for the Books in Bloom program.

Be sure to make a tent card to identify the display with the following information: Book Title, Author, Your Name or Group/Club name, and any interesting notes or information that would help explain the entry. A list of the flowers used would also be appreciated. There will also be pre-printed cards available if needed.

The displays can be viewed throughout the library on Friday, March 2nd and Saturday, March 3rd from 9 AM until the library closes at 5 PM.

The Friends of Weymouth Libraries will host a reception on Saturday, March 3rd from 1 PM until 4 PM.

Weymouth Garden Club members will supply the tasty treats.

All are welcome to attend the Books in Bloom event and reception.
