Speaker: Gerri Gibney
Topic: Hands on Workshop - Wreath and Holiday Arrangements - Make-It and Take-It

It's that time of year again, and the Garden Club will be making holiday decorations to use in your home or to give as a gift.  Gerri will be demonstrating how to create a holiday arrangement, a wreath created from three coat hangers, and a tabletop evergreen tree along with ideas to make beautiful centerpieces for the upcoming holidays.

The Garden Club will furnish the basic supplies; plastic containers for centerpieces, fresh greens and floral foam.  If you wish to use any personal do-dads, favorite ribbon, or any extra greens from your garden if you have some you would like to use bring them along.  In addition bring pruners and garden gloves, and if you plan to make a wreath, bring three coat hangers to use as a base. 

All are welcome to join in this fun Make-it & Take-it Evening, so bring your friends. There is no fee, however, if you are a visitor we would appreciate a donation to help cover the cost of materials.  Pre-registration is required to insure that there will be plenty of materials for everyone. To reserve your spot or for further information, please phone Gerri at 201-768-2615, or email
