We refer to the garlic sauce as 'garlic lard' since that's what it resembles most...

Seeing all the floats from the high vantage point in the barn was amazing! So cool to see this "preview". that is so much work getting all of the dried flowers prepared. i hope those kids are earning community service hours for their time! :)

Ha!, you're right, Adam-the consistency and color of the garlic is like lard, but the taste is magic. So glad we stopped at Zankou.
Thanks, cc. During 'Decorating Days' (December 26-30), Phoenix opens that upstairs passageway to the public (for a fee) so they can see the floats from that vantage point. Phoenix also offers a guided tour directly on the floor, so you can see things happening up close. The youngsters we worked with were indeed getting Community Service hours.

Hi Cathy! You and I are both quilters so we know all about tedious work. BUT those flower petals are taking tedious to an extreme! Kudos to the volunteers.

Cathy

Dividing up the colors, then squeezing the base and cutting the petals, with not too sharp scissors made it all the more interesting-and painful- the next few days, Carol. I understand the need to stick with the blue color and how difficult it is to find it economically. It's fun to be a part of the Tradition and the first Saturday in December is one of the lowest days for volunteer turnout (Dec 26 is the other low day).
