Klehm Arboretum offers holiday display, gift ideas

Visit Klehm Arboretum & Botanic Garden during the holiday season this year to experience a warm and inviting indoor display of delightful decorating and gift-giving ideas, each with a botanical theme. Don’t miss Klehm Arboretum & Botanic Garden’s annual “Holiday Door, Décor & More” exhibit.

This seasonal exhibit features the creative talents of designers, artists, decorators, and others, representing local shops, businesses and retailers, by transforming everyday doors, tables and benches into fun holiday décor. Those sharing their talents include Ambrose Christmas Store, Crimson Ridge, Finials, Cathy Prescott Designs, Steel Heart, The Flower Bin, Eclectic and O’Fallon’s. There is also a winter-themed train display that will delight young and old alike.

Klehm Arboretum’s Flowering Magnolia Gift Shop is brimming with exceptional holiday gifts and garden items. Just in are premium organic chocolates, Frontier soup and chili mixes, gourmet dip sets, designer candles, unusual Down Under Pots, rustic iron garden sculptures, trellis, obelisks, feeders plus garden gloves and specialty tools.

The exhibit is open daily 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. through Sunday, Jan. 8, 2006. A suggested donation of $2 for the exhibit also includes complimentary admission to the entire Arboretum. (Please note: the Arboretum will be closed Dec. 24-25, 31 and Jan. 1.)

Reservations are available for anyone interested in hosting a holiday reception or gathering in the beautifully decorated gallery during this unique exhibit.
