BAY HEAD — The Seaweeders Garden Club of Bay Head and Mantoloking hosted “Fall Inspirations” at Sacred Heart Church last Friday to learn and see Natale Siclare create fall inspired wreaths and planters.
Mr. Siclare, who is a landscape designer, has been working with the Seaweeders for five years, participating in events where he shows members how to make ornate and interesting floral displays.
Debbie Rzemieniewski, head of horticulture, said “A lot of times we have workshops where we are actually making things ourselves, but this is like an educational thing for the community.”
Over a dozen residents and Seaweeders came out to the church to enjoy some light snacks and refreshments as Mr. Siclare created a few planters of fall plants, some of which also had bulbs for flowers that would bloom in the spring.
He said this was the first instance when the club wanted to do this event in October, as the Seaweeders often ask him to come around November, where he makes Thanksgiving and Christmas/holiday themed baskets.
During his demonstration, he created a large bushel basket, a small wall hanging basket and an interior arrangement for houseplants. He also brought with him a premade succulent wreath, which he said would be a good winter project for the garden club.
