NYBG Orchid Dinner 2019

If you’re in the New York City area February 23 through April 28, please stop by The New York Botanical Garden for their 17th annual Orchid Show - it's truly a feast for the eyes.

Known as the nation’s largest exhibit of its kind, this year’s show is entitled “Singapore” - a tribute to one of the world’s greatest orchid cultures. You’ll be amazed at the garden’s transformation of the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory showcasing thousands of beautiful orchids in a spectacular variety of colors, shapes, sizes, and patterns. Earlier this week was NYBG’s annual Orchid Dinner in the Grand Ballroom of The Plaza. The dinner included stunning large-scale table centerpieces created by a group of New York’s leading designers. As you will see in these photos, each centerpiece is full of color and creativity. Proceeds from the event benefit the development of NYBG’s orchid research collection, which helps to maintain the highest horticultural standards of orchid conservation.

The event also allowed guests to purchase beautiful orchid specimens for their own personal garden collections during a pre-dinner sale - you'll love my new plants. Here are some photos - enjoy.
