TRAVEL
DIY
SOUVENIRS
WHEN THE BEST TRAVEL MEMENTOS
ARE THOSE THAT YOU MAKE YOURSELF
By Matt Villano
With more than a thousand acres
of sprawling wildlands behind the
winery chateau, it's no surprise
that Jordan Winery's staff is always
trying to incorporate natural
elements from the estate into the
overall aesthetic of its culinarycentered
hospitality.
Director of Hospitality and Events
Nitsa Knoll builds centerpieces
around Magnolia leaves, oak tree
moss, olive branches and other
natural items she forages from the
estate. Her husband, Executive
Chef Todd Knoll, adds herbs or
wild fennel to sea salts offered
as takeaway gifts at the end of
a dinner party. The simplicity is
simultaneously elegant and fun.
The Knolls also apply the same
strategies when they go on
vacations. For this dynamic duo,
souvenirs from an epic island
vacation or a roadtrip getaway
58
aren't things they can buy in a
store. Instead, the best mementos
are treasures or keepsakes from
the trip-a dried flower, a jar of sea
salt, the cork from a fabulous bottle
of wine.
" We're always trying to bring little
pieces of our adventures home with
us, " Nitsa says. " It's a great way to
remember where we've been and
enjoy the past while incorporating
it into the present. "
Here are three of their favorite
homemade travel souvenirs with
tips for how to make your own.
GREENERY WREATHS
When it comes to floral design,
Nitsa never really takes a break
from her work.
" I love creating wreaths and flower
crowns, whether at work or on
vacation, " Nitsa says. " It's one
of those creative outlets I find very
relaxing, and the final product is
something I can share with family
at the dinner table during a vacation
or give as a gift to kids we meet at
the farmer's market or the beach. "
One creative project she and her son
do together during holidays is make
wreaths from tree branches that are
native to the area they are visiting.
" I enjoy using Manzanita, oak and
any pine varietal for wreath making,
though cedar and seeded eucalyptus
are my favorites, " Nitsa says.
" We make the wreaths to enjoy at
our Airbnb, and we often leave them
behind for others to enjoy. " Wreaths
can be large enough to hang on a
door or fit nicely on someone's head,
or small enough to grace a place
setting on the dinner table. Slipping
a wire wreath frame into her luggage
makes the craft project even easier
during a trip.
