    Rhapsody in Bloom 2013

This year’s theme, Night Circus in the Gardens, is named after Erin Morgenstern’s popular novel about the fantastic Le Cirque des Rêves, or Circus of Dreams. The novel, set in Victorian London, inspired the design of Olbrich’s evening décor for Rhapsody in Bloom, emanating a mystical, magical circus. Guests are encouraged to dress similarly to the rêveurs of Le Cirque des Rêves, and wear black and white with dashes of red. Our evening begins with live music, refreshing cocktails and exquisite hors d’oeuvres in a glamorous fantastical atmosphere. See the Gardens like never before with amazing circus performances amongst the full blooms of summer. Throughout the night, purchase a key for your chance to open a lock and win a custom-made, Hearts on Fire studded pendant from Goodman Jewelers. Bid on one-of-a-kind items and packages, including unique container gardens designed by Olbrich’s horticulture staff, in the silent auction. Take part in an exciting live auction and bid on a chance to host your own private party for 20 people with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres in the Rose Garden! Dinner will be served under elegant white tents on Olbrich’s Great Lawn by Circolo Catering. Reservations required by June 13th.
