Make holiday decorations at New Quarter Park on Dec. 4
November 29, 2010
Join local florist Arlene Williams and make Christmas decorations from pine, boxwood, apples, and other live material at New Quarter Park on Saturday, Dec. 4, from noon until 2 p.m.
The park's monthly Walk and Talk program, usually held each first Saturday of each month from 10 a.m. to noon, has been moved forward two hours so that local patrons can attend the Williamsburg Christmas Parade before coming to the park for a cup of hot cider and to learn how to fashion eighteenth-century-style wreaths and swags.
Williams will talk about using natural plant materials while demonstrating the construction of a door decoration. Then park visitors can make their own decoration from plant materials clipped from the forest. Bring a basket or container if you wish to construct a centerpiece for your holiday table. Some florist foam will be available for sale, but participants are welcome to bring their own and are also asked to bring pruning shears and gloves to make working with plant material easier. Williams will also help participants tie their own ribbon into large and festive bows.
Lots of native and traditional plant material will be available for participants to fashion their holiday decoration with advice and assistance from Williams, owner of Morrison's Flowers and Gifts in the Colony Square Shopping Center.
New Quarter Park is located at 1000 Lakeshead Drive near the Queens Lake neighborhood. From Williamsburg, take the Colonial Parkway toward Yorktown and exit at the Queens Lake exit. Turn right at the bottom of the exit ramp (Hubbard Lane/West Queens Drive), pass under the Colonial Parkway, and turn right again onto Lakeshead Drive. Follow the signs to New Quarter Park, about 2 miles from the exit.
Please call York County Parks and Recreation at 757-890-3513 for more information about this program or to add your name to New Quarter Park's weekly e-mail of event updates.
