Exciting Vendors and Silent Auction at the 2023 “Back in Bloom” Garden Tour

One of everyone’s favorite part of our annual Garden Tour is stopping by our Vendor Village on the tennis court.  Plop down on a courtside sofa and sip a refreshing cocktail while soaking in the shopping experience. With new and returning favorites we aim for UNIQUE and CHIC, and this year will not disappoint. 

Don’t miss the Silent Auction nearby where the vendors listed below each have generously donated unique items. Quite spectacular are the dinners and lunches offered in stunning, private gardens, as well as the opportunity to have a dinner served in your home by Sean Murphy Catering & Events.
