(West Palm Beach, FL – February 7, 2018) Friends of the Mounts Botanical Garden hosted the second annual Hearts-n-Bloom Garden Tea Party last Saturday, attracting 80 beautifully clad ladies and gents. Attendees enjoyed high tea provided by the Serenity Tea House and Café with musical accompaniment by The Elegant Harp.
The traditional tea party was held on the Great Lawn, adjacent to the Mounts Butterfly Garden, following a delightful Mimosa Garden Stroll through the exciting new exhibit WASHED ASHORE: Art to Save the Sea. Attendees were encouraged to wear their best Garden Hat for inclusion in the Designer Hat Fashion Show, and they enjoyed a fun Garden Auction offering rare and exotic plants. The event raised more than $7,000 to help fund educational outreach programs at Mounts Botanical Garden.
