It may have been dubbed the "Orchid Experience" this year instead of the traditional Orchid Ball name, but this event in the botanical gardens still held much of its magic, even without dancing or glam long gowns. About 350 guests arrived to find their tables spaced out throughout the site for safety during Covid, and they feasted on smoked duck breast salad, porcini-crusted chateau of beef, "Pop" pastries and a beautiful evening under the stars, all to help support the gardens' education and outreach programming. And the "Pop Cocktail Attire" dress code inspired some cool fashion choices.
