Deck The Halls Greens Workshop!

All members of the Capitol Hill Garden Club who have paid their 2016-17 dues are cordially invited to attend the 2016 Deck the Halls Workshop. We will provide enough evergreen boughs for a wreath and/or centerpiece, a wreath form and/or oasis for making a centerpiece, beautiful ribbons and wreath-making pins. 

Old hands will gladly help first-timers. There will be demos of wreath and bow making.

If you have your old wreath forms, please bring them to re-use or to share. We also welcome anything from your garden that you feel is nice enough to use for decorations such as extra magnolia leaves, pinecones, and seedpods.

The workshop begins with finger food at 6:30 p.m. The early start allows time to eat before working on the wreaths and arrangements. Those who wish to come only for the supper are welcome to do so – no fee or registration is necessary – just bring food to share.

Registration Is Important!

As usual the workshop is limited to the first 40 people who sign up. Advance reservation and a $25 contribution toward the cost of the greens are both required. Please hit Register on this page and follow the prompts.  Or, you may complete the registration form attached below and mail it with your check to David Healy (1738 A Street SE, Washington, D. C. 30003) or give them to him at the November meeting. All registration forms and checks must be received by November 30th. You may NOT pay at the Greens Party.

Food: Each member is asked to bring a plate of sweet or savory finger food – enough for 8 -- the Club will provide paper plates, plastic glasses and beverages. We provide no cutlery, so, please, no casseroles!

Items you may want to bring: An apron to protect your clothes from pitch, garden gloves, pruning shears, scissors, pliers, or a Swiss army knife for making a wreath, swag or centerpiece. You will need to bring a watertight container to hold an oasis for a centerpiece. Persons allergic to the greens may wish to bring antihistamine. Remember to label your tool


Cleanup: We must leave the room as we found it. All members attending are required to help with the cleanup at the end of the workshop and restore the room for the next day’s activities. Please take folding chairs to the racks, sweep floors and bag all trash. Cleanup must be completed by 9:00 p.m.

Volunteers: Help will be needed during the day of the event to bag up and greens and prepare the space for the workshop.

If you have not already signed up to help and wish to do so, please contact this year's chairman David Healy, who can be reached at or 202-543-5919

Volunteers will be contacted later and told the times for bagging the greens and for set-up. 

The easiest way to Register for the Workshop is to do so here by clicking the registration button above and following the prompts. You will receive a confirmation email soon after you register.  Or, you may print out the registration form here and mail it as per the instructions on the form.
