I almost made it to Halloween before I brought up the holidays. My resolve in holding back is being chiseled down by the fact that next to the Halloween candy were the Santa Clauses and ornaments. Is Thanksgiving getting lost?
When I was a child it was Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Not Christmas, Halloween and Christmas. Where’s Thanksgiving, I ask. I haven’t found it in the stores yet, but you can find it at High-Hand.
A Great Thanksgiving Centerpiece
Saturday, November 10, 10-11:30 a.m, join Dory for our last Pumpkulent workshop of the year. We will supply you with all the dried and preserved floral ingredients, as well as succulents from our own greenhouse. Mimosas and fresh baked treats will most certainly be provided. This work shop’s cost is $65, plus tax. Reserve your seat and mimosa by clicking here.
With Thanksgiving, Nature brings a beautiful display of Fall colors.
Can you guess which plant above is called Burning Bush? A simple green, compact shrub in the summer. A display of fiery red in the Fall.
With Thanksgiving comes Fall flowers.
Pansies, ornamental kale and violas are available at the nursery to stand up against Mother Nature in defiance, displaying color all winter long.
With Thanksgiving comes the turkey. Not much to say about that. We don’t sell turkeys.
What’s next after Thanksgiving, you ask? Mmmm. What could it be?
Adrian and Renee installing Christmas lights in our trees. That’s what it is. Truth be told this actually started in October before Halloween. Please don’t call me a hypocrite, but with a gazillion lights going up, it takes upward of ten weeks to prepare.
And now, it’s official. High Hand’s Holiday celebration. The official announcement is here. The unofficial announcement was last week. This is the Official Announcement.
Join us, join us, join us.
December 1st and 2nd. Join us at High-Hand Nursery for our annual Christmas Faire. You can have breakfast at the cafe and get your mimosa starting at 9:00 a.m.. Stroll through the nursery and shop. Eat, drink, stroll, shop. Clever, huh? The switch gets flipped at 5:30 p.m., December 1st.
After your Thanksgiving pumpkin centerpiece, what’s next?
The holiday wreath.
Saturday, December 8th, 10am-12pm
Sunday, December 9th, 10am-12pm
Can’t get enough of Dory and Dory’s new classroom? Welcome winter with a handcrafted holiday wreath. We will supply you with everything you need to make a wreath featuring fragrant boughs of pine, fir, cedar and a variety of evergreens. You will be proud to showcase your creation on your door. Add treats and a winter inspired beverage and you have the makings of a fun morning. The class fee is $65, plus tax – click here to learn more.
Lots to see, lots to do, a lot of fun.
We are serving dinners in December, rain or shine. The lights will be on, but if it’s raining circuits are surely going to pop (disclaimer). Dates for dinner are as follows:
December 6th & 7th
December 20th & 22nd
Now, these dates probably don’t make sense to all of you who can see things that don’t make sense, but these are the dates that weave around company holiday parties. CAUTION: Reservations fill up fast.
Call High-Hand Cafe – (916) 652-2064. Calling this number will dump you into our ever so handy phone system. Dial extension 2 and you will be moved along. Leaving a message on the answering machine does not constitute a reservation. (Disclaimer) I promise, we will return phone calls at the earliest convenience possible and I don’t even have my fingers crossed behind my back.
With Christmas, brings cyclamen, a winter favorite in the garden.
Blooming throughout the Winter season, pansies, violas, kale and cyclamen give you no excuse not to have flowers in your garden this holiday season.
Would you like to shop from your computer?
The holidays and shopping go together like peas and carrots. We can send our gourmet oils and vinegar anywhere on Earth, provided that the U.S. Postal Office can deliver it. Our gourmet olive oils and balsamic vinegars make a wonderful gift. With one click of the mouse, we deliver great gifts. Shop our online store by clicking here.
This holiday season at High-Hand Nursery stroll, shop, eat and drink and be happy. Come to High Hand Nursery this holiday season. Don’t be afraid to take a deep breath and relax.
