In conjunction with the Garden Study Club of New Orleans, the New Orleans Museum of Art has been hosting “Art in Bloom,” a five-day event showcasing more than 100 exhibitors of creative and inspirational floral designs and sculptures, since 1988.

Chaired by Erica Reiss and Allison Tiller, this spring’s “Art in Bloom” event featured notable exhibitions such as lectures by Marguerite Charbonnet Green, a local horticulturist, utility arborist and florist, as well as Danielle Rollins, author of Soirée: Entertaining with Style, and contributing editor of Veranda.

 Guests gathered on the evening of Thursday, March 20, at the NOMA to celebrate the opening of “Art in Bloom” with musical entertainment from Tanya and Dorise at both the preceding patron party cocktail hour and art preview party. The likes of Arnaud’s, Broussard’s, Cafe Degas, Cafe NOMA, Dooky Chase, Galatoire’s, Gautreau’s, La Madeleine, Restaurant R’evolution, Rum House and more provided edibles and libations for partygoers. Tiffany and Co., among other vendors, provided beautiful items for the silent auction, including a yellow diamond key necklace. Local artist Sarah Ashley Longshore, designer of the ornate invitation, also produced a similar piece for the auction.
