May 20, 2018 Lilac Party at Willowwood Arboretum

We hope you have SAVED the DATE, Sunday afternoon, May 20, 2018 for this wonderful garden party fundraiser for the Willowwood Foundation.

It begins at 4:30 pm under the Tent with adult libations available at the bar, an interesting Silent Auction featuring not only unusual and interesting plants but also a few surprises. One such offering at last year's party was a luncheon on the back porch of the Tubbs House, complete with Champagne and a private garden tour.

A Spring Wine Tasting hosted by Andrea Maranca of Tewksbury Fine Fines will give you a chance to tease your palate with a variety of wines from all over the world.

And taste tempting hors d'oeuvres presented by Ross and Owren.

All this to the accompaniment of lovely piano music by Amir Mortezai

And TWO performances by The Ten of Somerset Hills in the Stone Barn.

If Mother Nature cooperates there will be the gentle breeze of lilac perfume and the gardens will be in Spring Bloom - perfect for a lovely early evening stroll. And as a memory of the party, every attendee traditionally receives a lilac plant as a gift from the Willowwood Foundation for their garden.

We hope you will join us for this charming garden party. Invitations will be mailed in early April. Tickets begin at $90 per person.

And check out photos from previous Lilac Parties on our Photo page. Newcomers to the party often ask "What is the dress code"? The Lilac Party is held rain or shine under the tent and in the Stone Barn. So depending on the weather, it is Spring Finery for the ladies, Jackets and collared shirts (ties optional - unless you have one of our Willowwood Vineyard Vines Ties) for the men. Or it could be down jackets and wellies! But it is always a PARTY, so come and enjoy this unique event on the Somerset Hills Social Calendar.
