Members of the Tulsa Herb Society have been busy cooking and crafting for their annual event – Carols & Crumpets. This year the event is December 6 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Tulsa Garden Center, 2435 S. Peoria Ave.
The sights, scents and sounds of the holidays envelop shoppers the moment the doors open for Carols & Crumpets. Introduced to Tulsa in 1990, this herbal craft fair helps fund Tulsa Herb Society’s activities and civic donations. Distinguished artisans present their wares in a delightfully relaxed holiday atmosphere.
Some of the items featured at Carols & Crumpets are herbal vinegars, which are always flavorful, along with chutneys, seasonings and teas. Herbal cosmetics, soaps and essential oils create a gentle respite for the senses during this busy time of year.
Live plants, topiaries and poinsettias add to the mix. Handmade Christmas ornaments and miniature fairy furniture as well as handcrafted baskets, pottery, and candles remind us of some of the many creative talents that can be found in our area. Garden signs, trellises and old English troughs take us back to the garden we so eagerly await during the winter months.
The Tulsa World has called Carols & Crumpets “one of the more anticipated events of the holiday season.” It is a joy for members, participants and visitors alike.
Everyone is encouraged to buy tickets in hopes to win this year’s one-of-a-kind vintage style tree with wool felt ornaments and beaded wool felt skirt.
Join family and friends for a bite to eat at the Snowflake Café. The café will be open from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Reservations aren’t required and the menu is available upon request.
Carols & Crumpets is free and open to the public. For more information, “like” the Tulsa Herb Society on Facebook. A portion of the proceeds benefits the Tulsa Garden Center’s education programs and the Linnaeus Teaching Gardens.
