preview_galaNaples Garden Club and Naples Botanical Garden once again combined resources and talents to present the exhilarating annual Naples Flower Show. The two-day event, now one of the largest juried flower shows in Florida.

The show’s Gala Preview Celebration held on March 21, 2013, was “black tie encouraged” and a very exciting and festive occasion. Everyone was fashionably dressed in tuxedos, suits and cocktail attire, which leant to a grand celebration of the show. Members and invited guests were able to enjoy the evening in the comfort of the air-conditioned Windstar room while savoring passed hors d’oeuvres, champagne, wine and soft drinks. The black, white and green color scheme in the linen tablecloths and green centerpieces continued the theme throughout on the Pink Patio and loggia and music was provided for the guest’s pleasure. Guests meandered through the show and enjoyed the wide array of horticulture, fabulous designs and the Garden Market of vendors. As a special surprise Scott Hansen, Managing Director of BMO-Harris Bank (which donated a substantial monetary gift to the party) presented a fabulous “60th Anniversary cake given by Naples Botanical Garden to Naples Garden Club for the occasion.  Click here to see the photo gallery of the event.
