Saturday, December 2, 2017 – Lucy’s Hearth Designer Wreath Sale, 9 a.m.-noon, Rotunda at Easton’s Beach, Christmas wreaths and tabletop decorations created by designers, artists, gardeners and florists from the community, a gourmet sweets bake sale also featured, proceeds to benefit Lucy’s Hearth.
Here’s my tale of 2017 wreath making:
Jennifer’s kitchen, hot glue gun, multiple fragrant live wreaths , boxes of ribbons, ornaments, shells and berries, collected all year round……just need to find the box full of creativity after a long work week….
For many years I have helped Jen, along with other friends, create dozens of “works of art” to be donated to the Holiday Wreath Sale, held the first Saturday of December ,at the Rotunda at Easton’s Beach in Newport from 9-noon. The proceeds benefit Lucy’s Hearth in Middletown.
Once I loosened up and stopped thinking about what to do, I just started to glue shells and starfish and little pearl buttons and with Jennifer’s help (hahaha…she’s a pro!) I enjoyed a fun evening, and I only burned my fingers once!
Here are my four contributions for 2017. I can’t wait to make one for myself. Try to get to the sale early as these wreaths sell out fast.
