Get Festive: Art of the Wreath Holiday Party at Ambler Farm

21 Nov
The first time we went to Ambler Farm was for the Bull N’ Brew fundraiser that brought in much needed money for Karuna Bully Rescue.  There was lots o’ beer, wine, and there were lots of hot dogs to go around from Super Duper Weenie.
While that was back in May, there are still lots of events and happenings going on at Ambler Farm.  Take “Art of the Wreath,” for example.  On November 30 from 7-10 pm, you’ll be able to bid on amazing wreaths, drink holiday cocktails, and taste some killer hors d’oeuvre.  Entrance is $65 for non-members and $60 for members (get your tickets here), with proceeds going directly to Ambler Farm.

Here are some more specifics on why this will be a great time for you to celebrate the holiday season at Ambler Farm:

  • Bid on handmade decorated wreaths during a silent auction
  • Passed hors d’oeuvre from Bistro du Soleil of Westport:
    • Shrimp Shooters with Chilean Pebre (cilantro pesto)

    How GREAT are you two?? Never in a million years did I expect you to help us promote the Art of the Wreath. Thank you, thank you! Will you be there? It’d be lovely to finally meet in person! (88 people are registered as of this a.m. and fire code caps it at 120.) Below is a photo of the fierce-some foursome with photo props (it’s an obvious hint to expect holiday photo props at the event). Also, here’s the blurb: Kick off the holiday season with warmth and cheer at Ambler Farms Art of the Wreath holiday party at 7pm on Friday, November 30th! Enjoy a festive evening of music, mingling and merrymaking, a holiday boutique, a retro photo booth, and of course, bid on fabulous wreaths! Sip bespoke cocktails by The Spread’s very own Chris Hickey and nibble on savory passed bites by the inimitable Maria del Castillo of Bistro du Soleil. New this year: select your own swag! Choose two decorative favors to take home: a colorful felt ball garland; a “Cheers” or “Gather” banner; farm notecards; or vintage-inspired holiday gift tags. Tickets are limited and on sale now. Register today to save your spot! Register at (photo l-to-r: Event co-chair Torie Clancy, The Spread’s Chris Hickey, Bistro du Soleil’s Maria del Castillo, co-chair Sonia OConnor) Thanks again!
