There’s a definite crispness to most mornings and a certain golden quality to the afternoon light that can only mean one thing-that the long slide into winter has begun. And while many people don’t greet this descent with an open heart, here at Restoration Gardens, we’re all in a frenzy of activity. Unsold plants must be snugly put away until next spring, bulbs must be potted for forcing and most importantly, the garden center and gift shops must be decorated and bedazzled.
A major portion of that glitter and ribbon goes to our famous wreath workshop. The crew is made up of garden center employees and a special wreath task force that returns to our barn every year, much like swallows to Capistrano. And we believe that this comradery shows in each and every wreath we create. All of our makers have their own signature, be it a particular twist to grapevine loops, a deft hand with decorations or an exuberance of natural accents.
But we aren’t content with making wreaths alone. We’ll custom size your garland, clothe a dress-maker’s form in birch bark, build grapevine trees. Why, the possibilities are limited only by the imagination-yours and ours. And as a special offer to followers of our blog, we’ll take $5.00 off the price of any Classic or Designer wreath that is pre-ordered by November 12th.
So stop into garden center and place your order for your own holiday bling. Or to be inspired by this season’s creations. We’re happy to chat, give you a demonstration or tie a bow. And if you’re especially lucky, there will be baked goods.
