The Orchid Dinner

It was the best way to start my 2011 Gala season in NYC, The New York Botanical Gardens hosted the Annual Orchid Dinner at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel on February 1st. I learnt that the Gardens are a designated Rescue Center and are involved in bringing ailing plants back to health, to make aware the illegal harvesting of endangered plants and to help prevent the extinction from over-collecting.
The real stars of the night were the orchids them selves. Each table was designed and donated by decorators and design teams.
The event was underwritten by Tiffany & Co, BNY Mellon and Veranda.
Many thanks to the staff of the Garden who found me a place to sit for dinner. It was delicious.
