Woman to Woman Lunch in the Garden

By: Alison Silveira

The Toronto Botanical Garden celebrated its 5th annual Woman to Woman Lunch in the Gardenparty and the event was quite a fancy affair. The TBG provided a lush and gorgeous setting for the fundraising soiree. The elegant and dynamic Tre Armstrong hosted the event and encouraged female bonding and sisterhood. 

Women looked lovely in their fanciest frocks, fashionable fascinators and larger than life hats. 

Some ladies even made their own creations and competed in the Hat and Fascinator Competition. Partygoers bid on luxurious items, like overnight getaways and fashion accessories at the silent auction. 

I mingled with other women and enjoyed refreshing summer cocktails. 

I feasted on delectable hors d'oeuvres and delicate desserts at the Heathbridge Dessert Lounge. My favourite bites included the floating dessert spoons and pineapple cake.

Sunny weather made for an enjoyable afternoon at the TBG. I plan on exploring more of the TBG, which spans nearly four acres and offers garden tours, nature day camps and has an extensive horticultural library. This summer, visit the TBG and be inspired by the beauty of nature and its peaceful surroundings.
