The Garden Party

"A Secret Garden"



This inaugural event features a cocktail reception and live music situated among a million blooms. The 2015 theme – A Secret Garden – is inspired by the classic tale of young Mary Lennox who discovers a mysterious world beyond the garden gates.

The Garden Party is set indoors and out. Guests can expect to follow winding paths past rich perennials, breathtaking roses, and blooming peonies. Discover the closed-to-the-public historic Bloemendaal House, with its cozy rooms and inviting verandas, and then stroll the extensive brick patios leading to the charming Grace Arents Garden.

The event is hosted by the Garden’s Board of Associates to benefit the Children’s Garden and to further develop hands-on programs for the Garden’s youngest patrons. The Board of Associates of Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden is in its sixth year of championing the Children's Garden.
