Amarillo Botanical Gardens to host Poinsettia Luncheon, style show

The Amarillo Botanical Gardens will provide a vibrant and festive setting for a Poinsettia Luncheon hosted by the Southwest Amarillo Garden Club on Tuesday from 11:30 a.m. until 1 p.m., according to Amarillo Botanical Gardens Executive Director Jelaine Workman.

 

Each of the tables will be decorated by individual members of the garden club — a great way for club members to use their decorating skills and express an artistic rendition of Christmas, according to Workman.

Food is being catered by For the Love of Catering and attendees can expect tasty dishes such as chicken fettuccine, salad, breadsticks and assorted pastries, Workman said.

Also on the lunch menu is a style show put on by Anderson Model and Talent Agency. Guests at the luncheon will enjoy runway entertainment with models wearing clothes provided by Dillard’s and furs from Marseille Furs, according to Workman.

Workman sees the Poinsettia Luncheon as an opportunity for office managers and business owners to buy a table and treat staff to a luncheon in celebration of the holidays.

“It’s fun and nice,” she said.

Individual tickets are $35 apiece, or $50 will buy a seat at the table and a poinsettia to take home, Workman said. She said tables each seat eight people and poinsettias can be purchased separately for $20.

“Proceeds all go back to the gardens,” Workman said. “We will start our spring planting with these funds.”
