“Make-It and Take-It” you will make either a centerpiece or wreath. This year we’ve returned to the Williamsburg theme of holiday decorating and that means lots of apples and fruits. The Garden Club will supply the greens, the floral foam, some ribbon, and plastic containers for you to use for your centerpiece. However, if you have a favorite bowl or container to use for the piece, bring it along. In addition you need to bring pruners, do-dads, favorite ribbon, garden gloves, and extra greens from your garden. The “greens” are at your discretion (go ahead – cut some of your evergreens, it will make them happy!).
If you plan to make a wreath, please bring three coat hangers.
We'll also throw in a little history of holiday decorating, especially about the Williamsburg style; which, as many of you know, was never used in colonial Williamsburg, but now has become a tradition, and a nice one at that! If you want to use fruits in your arrangement, please bring them along, since this is a free “Make-It and Take-It” it would be too expensive for the Club to buy fruits!
In addition, we’ll give you a handout of some ideas for simple centerpieces you might want to use during the upcoming holidays.
