The year my son was born we began a family of tradition of attending Horn Seed’s Annual Open House, which is always the weekend before Thanksgiving. Horn Seed is a garden center in Oklahoma City.
Horn Seed is everything the mall and warehouse stores are not. It’s been in business for nearly 90 years, and was the first modern garden center in Oklahoma City. These days, like the Old World Christmas ornaments they’ve become known for, Horn feels old world.
Anchoring the far east of end of Classen at Northwest Expressway, their open house comes fully stocked with hotdogs, popcorn, sodas, cookies, candy canes, choo-choo trains and Santa Clause. The highlight, however, is that the kid each pick out an ornament – or we pick one out for them. So far, we have about 20 ornaments from Horn. Juliette couldn’t go with us this year, which really bummed me out, so we took her the next day to pick out her ornament.
Here are some pictures of our visit.
