The popular “Deer Hunters Widows Weekend” returns to the Oglebay Palm Room. On November 22, 23, 24 and 25 all “widows” of hunting season are invited to the Palm Room to “hunt” for the perfect Christmas gift. “Customers can even save a few bucks by selecting a discount coupon out of the decorative deer!” said Marilyn Archer, Garden and Greenhouse Manager.
The Palm Room is full of ornaments for the holidays, unique plants, live mixed green wreaths, gardening gifts, solar and electric lights, plus 21 varieties of poinsettias ranging in pot size from 2 3/8” to 10”. Traditional red, white and pink, plus Winter Rose and novelty glitter poinsettias, are available this year. “The plants make festive gifts dressed up with decorative pot covers and bows,” added Archer.
The Palm Room is open on Thanksgiving Day, November 22, from 1:00 to 9:00 p.m.; Friday, November 23 and Saturday, November 24 from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.; and on Sunday, November 25 from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Greenhouse personnel will be on hand to answer plant and gardening questions.
