Old Bonhomme PTO Garden Team and Olivette in Bloom joined for a night of fun creating stunning winter porch pots and door swags using seasonal branches, greenery, and decorations. Workshop was only $15 to create a pot or swag. Photos below capture this holiday inspiring and entertaining evening!
Natural materials were gathered from Olivette parks by the Olivette Horticulturalist, Brian Azcona., for workshop participants to use for their creations. Meanwhile, Workshop Leader, Whitney Tucker, gave tips on how to use these materials.
Participants, using their own pots, enjoyed using magnolia leaves, dried bee balm pods, fonds from large grass plants, boxwood trimmings, birch logs and other natural materials --what materials might be in your own backyard?
Adults, and a creative young man, had fun choosing their favorite natural materials and securing that with twine to create various door and table swags.
Meanwhile, below are more results of porch pots created in less than 2 hours!! What a relaxing atmosphere at Five Oaks on Warson to help set the tone for enjoying a fun event!
