Victorian Ornaments

Monday, December 8, 2014 at 7:00-8:00pm 

Until the early 1900’s, the Christmas tree was decorated with homemade paper cutouts, candies, cookies, gilded walnuts, gifts and other edible ornaments. A particular favorite, however, was the cornucopia, a cone shaped ornament filled with candy.
Join Rita Parisi, in period costume, who will speak briefly about Christmas tree ornaments from this time. She will then instruct everyone on how to create a cornucopia of their own. All the materials are provided, so that each person can make one ornament to take home.

Appropriate for ages 5 and up. Space is limited and registration is required. Please sign up at the Reference Desk, or call 203-239-5803.
