Just a lovely way to start your day, or end it… The Horticultural Society of New York held its annual dinner-dance this past week, a beautiful night for a great cause.
Cherry blossoms are always wonderful, aren’t they?
Here’s a close-up of Jodi Zimmerman’s table… The little pots of wheat grass and ribbon-wrapped container are a nice touch.
This viburnum extravaganza had individual topiaries at each place as favors. I love favors and always think about doing them. That’s usually about as far as I get.
It’s all about the drama. If you want to talk to your cross-table companions, you have to do a bit of maneuvering. Not a bad thing.
The Hort’s own ever creative George Pisegna’s combination of burgundy, chartreuse, and white was a winner.
I love bird cages and butterflies, even though the lighting was bad here. This could have been a hat at the Kentucky Derby. Did you watch it? It was great.
Loved these ribbon streamers, especially on the chair backs. Steal this idea.
This sprawling, vine-y arrangement is romantic, extravagant, and yet simple in its use of plant material. It’s all about go big or go home.
Speaking of going… have a beautiful day. It’s His Grace’s birthday AND our granddaughter’s baptism day. We have 30 for lunch, yikes, and I’m still in my bathrobe. Our centerpieces will be a little simpler than these. You can see them on Instagram.
