Spring Blossoms Flower Show Preview Party
April 7 @ 5:30 pm| $25
When Jay Gould and his children owned Lyndhurst, the mansion was constantly bedecked with flowers from the vast Lyndhurst greenhouses. To recreate this, Lyndhurst Mansion will open its 2017 season of tours with an extravagant spring flower show featuring Westchester’s finest florists displaying lavish arrangements throughout the rooms of the mansion. Visitors may either take guided tours of the historic home or simply walk through at their leisure to see the various floral displays. This provides future brides, planners and hostesses the opportunity to sample some of the best floral craft available in Westchester County.
The Spring Blossoms Flower Show Special Preview Party is co-sponsored by the Garden Club of Irvington on Friday, April 7 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. At the Preview Party, the public will have the opportunity to meet the floral designers and discuss their signature style while touring the mansion. The show continues on Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to 4 pm.
“The flower show is not only a wonderful opportunity to see the best local florists in one place, it also gives visitors a chance to see Lyndhurst bedecked with flowers as it was in its heyday. Because the mansion had many gardens and a splendid greenhouse, the original tenants always had stunning flower arrangements in every room,” said Howard Zar, Lyndhurst’s Executive Director.
The Spring Blossoms Flower Show is the perfect opportunity for brides and event planners to see upscale area florists including Ned Kelly & Company of Piermont, Gerald E. Palumbo and Miko Akasaka of Seasons of Irvington & New York City, Sue Bicksler-Taub of Holbrook Cottage of Briarcliff Manor, among others. Lou Zapata of the Garden Club of Irvington will create a special display of flowering orchids. The suggested donation for the Preview Party is $25.
