Update: Deck The Halls and the Floral Feasts Luncheon are sold out! Tickets are still available for Family Day and the Holiday Boutique.
The Gardens may seem to be winding down but there is a lot of good going on here! Celebrate with us at the festivities in Van Vleck House and in the Gardens! We are celebrating gratitude and gatherings in a variety of fun events.
This annual event ushers in the holiday season to a variety of gatherings: shoppers, flower design enthusiasts, partygoers and families. It is designed to celebrate our missions: to support our Community Grants program, to continue to expand our educational programs, and to maintain the 6-acre quiet oasis which can be visited by all 365 days a year.
We will also honor two distinguished individuals in our community, Brenda Bingham and Paul Sionas, and celebrate the work of the Schumann Fund for New Jersey. Businesses and individuals can purchase tribute ads in our printed event journal.
Make your reservations by November 9th. Vaccine proof required for ALL EVENTS. CDC and NJCOVID protocols will be followed.
