Hooray! The first two wreaths have arrived for the Arts Center’s first Festival of Wreaths. Judging from the two entries that have arrived I foresee that the festival is going to be a beautiful holiday event.
Deb Munyan brought the first wreath made almost entirely from pinecones that she collected locally. It is a truly Adirondack creation, and would be beautiful in any Adirondack home.
The second wreath was donated by Adirondack Accents, a local gift shop located on Old Forge’s, Main Street. Kristen Down, the wreath’s creator attached lots of extra goodies including Adirondack-themed wine glasses and a bottle of wine!
The first two wreaths donated are wonderfully different from one another, and illustrate the idea of the Festival of Wreaths beautifully. What makes each of them so special are the personal touches and the different viewpoints that each of them brought to their wreath. It is exciting to think about what others may create. Be sure to visit the Festival of Wreaths at the Arts Center/Old Forge and place a bid on your favorite. Wreaths will be on display November 27-29.
Also if you would like to donate a wreath, it is not too late to join the fun. Contact the Arts Center for an application. Or follow the attached link to download a link off of our web page.
