Holiday Preview 2016

open-house-7The kick off for the Detroit Garden Works holiday preview weekend is tonight.  I have spent most of the last 2 weeks helping to get the shop ready for our only evening event of the year. It is a party for all of those gardeners who shop here, and help keep our business going. We thank all of you.  It is also an opportunity for Rob to display all of his lighting ideas for the winter to come. If you are in the area, our event runs from 5 to 9.  We have complimentary valet parking, a light dinner, and drinks. It is terrifically good fun, should you have a mind to attend.  If not, the event goes on Friday and Saturday 9-5, and Sunday 12-4.  As there is more I have to do before 5, I will leave you with these pictures. And I will post more of the evening party for those who are too far away to come. Next week, I promise I will be back to writing-of course about the gardening season ahead. Hope to see you later!

    Your Detroit Garden Works holiday items are certainly lovely. I especially like the trees and animals. I am a nature lover. Thanks so much for sharing.
    Another question: I am trying to find information on a pine tree growing in my daughter’s property in Ohio – Hocking Hills. It is a pine tree growing in the shape of an elephant – medium sized. I did send a message to The Ohio State University Extension and am waiting for their answer. You are such in-the-know person and thought you might be able to advise me of information.
    Thank you so much. Have a Happy Thanksgiving.

  4. Your holiday celebration sounds terrific. If only I lived closer. The decor is outstanding as always. What a nice way to gather your customers and inspire them at the same time. Nothing like a gathering to bring out the holiday spirit. Holiday cheer to everyone! Deck the halls…

    I would like one of each please. Beautiful things but I am too far from you, in Charlotte, NC. I guess you don’t do mail order? Thanks for sharing.
