December 1, 2016 - Hands on Workshop Conducted by Gerri Gibney –“Marvelous Greens” - Wreath and Holiday Arrangements, Make-It and Take-It, no fee. Bring pruners, and do-dads to decorate your holiday creation, and three coat hangers if you are going to make a wreath.
“Marvelous Greens” is the theme for the annual Garden Club of Harrington Park’s “Make-it & Take-It Workshop” to be conducted by Gerri Gibney on Thursday, December 1, 2016 at 7:30 P.M. in the Harrington Park Library located at 10 Herring Street in Harrington Park, New Jersey.
Gerri will discuss the various greens you can use right from your own garden as well as several design themes you might use for your own creation. One ever-popular style is the "Colonial Williamsburg” theme, a particular favorite of Gerri’s. Abundant with fruit, vegetables, foliage, herbs and dried flowers, the charm of Williamsburg wreaths, swags, and centerpieces has delighted generations of Americans and Gerri will discuss how you can translate this style to your arrangement.
The Garden Club will furnish the basic supplies; plastic containers for centerpieces, fresh greens, floral foam and ribbon. If you have a favorite bowl or container you'd prefer to use, bring it along. If you wish to use fruits in your arrangement, bring them also, plus any personal adornments, do-dads, favorite ribbon, or extra greens from your garden you would like to use or share. You will also need your pruners and gardening gloves. Please note: if you plan to make a wreath, bring three coat hangers.
All are welcome to join in this fun “Make-It & Take-It” evening. There is no fee. Pre-registration is required to insure that there will be plenty of materials for everyone. To reserve your spot or for further information, call Gerri at 201-768-2615, email email@example.com or visit www.gardenclubofharringtonpark.com and click on the "Contact Us" button, or visit us on Facebook.

"Members' Night" has always been one of our most anticipated meetings -- it is an opportunity for you to share anything "garden" with your fellow GCHP members via slides, PowerPoint, etc.
Wouldn't you like to show off your garden? Or a special project you have completed? How about clueing us in on a perennial, bush or tree that was exquisite beyond your expectations? Or conversely, a plant that was a disappointing flop? Or maybe take us on a "Slide Trip" to a beautiful or unique garden you have visited? You can do any of these at our upcoming "Members' Night".
Esther Ross is busy putting together the line-up now, so if you would like to be a presenter, please contact her ASAP: phone - 201-768-3621 or email - firstname.lastname@example.org.
