This year’s theme, Paradise Under the Palms, highlights the multifaceted nature of tropical flora and showcases spectacular creations by garden clubs, floral designers, and creative talents from New Orleans and beyond. Take in fabulous floral installations throughout the museum, learn directly from today’s top design talents, and celebrate spring during the luncheon and fashion show. Your support provides critical resources for both NOMA’s educational initiatives and exhibitions and the Garden Study Club of New Orleans’ community projects.
