Colorful, bold orchid arrangements were the center of attention at the New York Botanical Garden’s annual Orchid Dinner. The evening at The Plaza celebrated the inauguration of Jeff Leatham’s Kaleidoscope, the flower design show at NYBG.

The artistic, large-scale orchid arrangements were donated by illustrious designers and companies such JAB Design Group and fleursBELLA. The garden raised more than $550,000 from the evening to support NYBG and its world-renowned horticulture and botanical research programs. Guests enjoyed cocktails and a multicourse dinner and later danced to hits played by DJ Mad Marj. The sale of rare and exceptional orchids, as well as an exclusive designer orchid showcase, invited attendees to explore the imaginative space.
