Come get inspired for the season!

Join us as award-winning floral designers Carol Harris and Ricky Whitley decorate areas in Aldridge House and out in the Gardens. Using Alabama greens such as yew, magnolia, holly and nandina mixed with pine cones and berries, Carol and Ricky will demonstrate how you can transform your own house into a beautiful southern home for the holidays!

Register now and learn to liven up mantels, mailboxes, lamp posts, entryways and more with your holiday decorating. 


Saturday, December 6
9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.


Find bundled greenery for all of your holiday trimmings! We’ll also have a limited selection of  Christmas trees from Mountain Scouts Christmas Tree Sales Association available. 

The sale will be held behind Aldridge House, on the patio of Roots, our Garden and Gift Shop. In case of rain, look for us under the Pavilion. 

Let Us Make Your Holidays Happier!

The holiday season is here - it's time to plan your special events at one of the most beautiful venues in Hoover!

From cocktail parties to seated dinners, Aldridge Gardens is the perfect place to hold your company's holiday party or put some merry in your meetings. 

For reservation information, please contact Amanda Baker, Director of Sales and Catering, at abaker@aldridgegardens.com or 205.685.8019 ext. 6. 


Come out and enjoy the autumn fresh air!

This year our members have spotted more than 60 species of birds during Saturday morning walks in the Gardens. Grab your binoculars and join us from 8:00 to 10:00 a.m. on the third Saturday of each month to find out what else we'll see before winter comes!
