A Wreathing We will go!!! This meeting is for those of you that would be interested in creating a live holiday wreath that can hang outside your home (on a door, a porch, etc.). This will be a potluck, so be sure to bring a dish and a few supplies for making the wreaths. Elaine has graciously offered to host our group for a fun time making Holiday wreaths.
Last year our living wreaths (if hung on an exterior door or outside) lasted until February!
Be sure to dress warmly as we may be outside for a bit!
There are 13 new wreath rings available for purchase at $1.50 a piece. Fortunately these are leftover from last years event, as I have not been able to purchase more this year. I do have another six or so that can be re-used from last year at no cost. Feel free to bring your own, but those members who rsvp'd and actually show up will have first dibs on the rings. Your rsvp is greatly appreciated and please change it if you will not be attending as provisions are made to accommodate those in attendance. A variety of fresh cut greens will be provided.
I will have a hot hearty soup and beverages. Any complimentary sides and desserts are welcome. Its appreciated if you could leave a comment as to what you are bringing for your potluck item.
