MIDDLETOWN, NJ - As visitors tour the Stately Homes by-the-Sea Designer Show House, they often think wistfully of their own home; wondering how they can replicate the gracious beauty of the Holly Hill estate. On Wednesday June 8 artisan and floral specialist Steve White will demonstrate how to grace a room with Stately Homes by-the-Sea magic.

Stately Homes by-the-Sea to benefit the Visiting Nurse Association of Central Jersey is welcoming visitors through June 12 at Holly Hill, a historic country estate nestled in Locust, one of the most beautiful water view locations in New Jersey.


White’s artful and unique arrangements are on display on the first floor of Holly Hill. Known for his simple and modern approach to flower presentation, White will reveal how to use a variety of natural elements with his custom crafted Stems Vases to create a sleek, stunning arrangement that can lift any room in your home.
