Host a Wreath Making Party

Pat Sherman started it. She ordered some soft touch wreath forms that turned out to be very easy to use. She showed some folks at Cylburn Arboretum how to make a wreath and then agreed to do the same thing here on December 7 at 3:00. Chesapeake Home and Living magazine also did an article and video featuring Pat's work.

So, it was only natural that my sisters, a couple of good friends and I make wreaths. We got the forms from Valley View Farms. I picked up some winter berry and Fraser fir at the store as well. Then I went to my yard for cypress, cedar, cryptomeria, weeping Norway spruce and hemlock. Jan brought junipers with beautiful blue berries and Mary asked her neighbor if she could prune some holly from a tree. We were set.
Here are the fun photos we took afterwards. We had a blast.
Come on in on Saturday; then host your own wreath making party.
