You don’t want to miss Van Vleck House & Gardens at peak beauty at the Annual Plant Sale. Van Vleck’s garden staff and expert volunteers will assist shoppers in choosing from a broad selection of unique perennials, annuals, shrubs, vines and edibles from a variety of local New Jersey growers. The weekend starts with a preview cocktail party, followed by four days when the sale will be open to the public.
Fête des Fleurs Preview Cocktail Party
The weekend kicks off on Thursday evening, May 2nd, with a themed party called Fête des Fleurs—a special preview cocktail party where guests can gain premier access to the plant sale blooms. Fashion is great fun at this party, where guests are known to combine Wellington boots, clogs and other garden-friendly footwear with their dresses, while they enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres on the Van Vleck House terrace. Tickets are available at vanvleck.org.
