daniel works for the horticultural society of new york. usually that means he spends his time creating & maintaining gardens & public green space in low income neighborhoods around the city. last month however, it meant that we attended the horticultural society's annual gala event.
we were out of our element...
we enjoyed mingling while different waiters approached us with hors d'oeuvres to try... we drank champagne from fluted glasses... we ate a multi-course meal that involved goat cheese, lamb & chocolate covered strawberries. ..several tables sold for $25,000 a piece....so you can imagine how decked out everyone was.
we tried our best, but we didn't even dress up for our own wedding.
anyway, the coolest part was that several well-renowned flower design artists made flower arrangements for the centers of the tables. they were huge & beautiful & way more creative than i would have guessed flower arrangements could be....my favorite were the watermelons carved like pumpkins.
