DARIEN, Conn. -- Darien's Nielsen's Florist is set to host the third annual "Home for the Holidays" event Nov. 14.

The event, featuring local designers, is set to begin at 5:30 p.m. at 1405 Post Road in Darien, according to a press release. The event is set to benefit Darien EMS Post 53, according to the release.

"Nielsen’s 'Home for the Holidays' event features local designers who will create their own interpretation of a holiday tablescape," representatives said in the release.

Designers for the event include Greg Pollack, Elissa Grayer, Stephanie Sigg of Country Designs and Nielsen’s own designers, according to the release.

“We’re really looking forward to supporting a local organization that is near and dear to everyone’s hearts," said Sandy Nielsen, general manager of Nielsen’s, in the release. "Darien EMS-Post 53 not only makes a critical difference to members of our community every day, but also empowers young people as they enter into adulthood with skills that last a lifetime.”

Guests also are invited to "take advantage of the great holiday decorating ideas while enjoying wine and hors d’oeuvres provided by Michael Joseph’s," according to the release.

“As the community gears up for a season of thanks and giving, this event is a terrific opportunity to support an organization that is here for them all year long. And at the same time, get some creative ideas for the holidays," said Nancy Herling, assistant director of Darien EMS-Post 53. "There will be some great door prizes and it’s a fun way to start your holiday shopping.”

Tickets for the event are $10 at the door and include one door prize ticket. All ticket proceeds and 10 percent of the evening’s sales will benefit Darien EMS-Post 53, according to the release.
