Decor by Kristi will help turn The Hill Garden into a beach inspired affair. Tablecloths in aqua blue and flowers in tropical colors (neon green, barbie pink, blue, and electric orange) will accent “Surf on the Turf,” an evening to remember.
Visitors to The Gardens will also have an opportunity to take part in our Planting Station, where they can plant and grow their own Zinnias (a plant that will change at each of the three events).
We’re eager to meet and greet you at The Hill Garden on August 11, 2011 from 5:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. Join us for one of Birmingham’s premier social events for young professionals and music lovers! Jon Black and War Jacket will provide the evening’s soundtrack.
