Soon, it shall be the days of Christmas, Hanukah, Kwaanza, and winter solstice. Wreaths will start adorning our homes; some will be dried, or made of silk, or cut from metal. Some will have dried fruit, decorative birds, or bells. Some will be traditional, some silly and fun, some bright, angular, and modern. All will be delightful.
This year, you are welcome to make your own fresh holiday wreath using fresh greens—”both the traditional and the unusual!”—from the grounds of the Arboretum, along with a variety of greens brought at the day’s Flower Mart.
Marla Carter and her friends will provide the wreath materials, frame, and wire. Guests are asked to bring their own gardening gloves, clippers, and may feel free to bring any decorations they wish to use.
We are told this holiday wreath-making class has become a tradition and is very popular, so register early!
