Capitol Hill Garden Club In Washington, D.C., Since 1952

June Garden Party

On May 31, when fifty garden club members gathered on the patio of the U.S. National Arboretum, the weather was balmy and the setting was freshly landscaped. As usual, Johann and friends had added the perfect notes of elegance and grace with linen cloths and flowers on each table. 


Just after appetizers were served, we selected and exchanged gifts in the White Elephant. An orchid planted in a beautiful container changed hands several times, leaving anticipation, excitement and disappointment in its wake. The same was true of a funky felt rooster. Oh well, luck of the draw! Both participants and observers had fun with this activity. Thanks, Marissa, for this entertaining addition to the evening. 


Yet again, the garden party demonstrated that the garden club is chocked full of good cooks. The food was delicious, the music atmospheric, and the company unbeatable. Finally, we again wowed the Arboretum staff with our efficient and complete clean-up. 


Thanks again to all who made this year’s party a success!
