WILLOWWOOD LILAC PARTY

We will be gathering at the Willowwood Arboretum for the Lilac festival on Sunday, Mat 21st at 4:30 pm. Join us on for this beautiful event at a hidden paradise right here in NJ. Shhh..don't tell everyone!

This is the 22nd Annual Lilac Party and it is not to be missed! Please indicate your interest to let us know you are coming but pay directly to the Willowwood Foundation at www.willowwoodfoundation.com.  Information about this year's party is on the events page and there are pictures from previous parties on the photo page 

Enjoy the Ten (men's a cappella chorus), Wine Tasting, Silent Plant auction, gorgeous gardens, etc. 


The beloved Sunday afternoon Lilac Party is not to be missed.

Once again, a WINE TASTING hosted by Andrea Maranca of Tewksbury Fine Wine and Spirits in Oldwick, will offer a diverse selection of wines guaranteed to interest fine wine aficionados as well as those seeking to learn about wine. Wine is romantic; wine choices to pair with dining experiences can be fun yet challenging. Andrea answers your questions as you learn to evaluate wine and develop your palate like an expert!

MUSIC! The Ten of Somerset Hills, a men's a cappella chorus, will perform two sets (weather permitting) in the Stone Barn. Each guest will experience a rare afternoon of far ranging musical entertainment. Their vocal harmony covers the best of all musical genres with powerful chords, smooth and luscious tones.


Amir Mortezai, composer, film scorer and pianist, will offer a wide range of musical selections inside the tent. From classics to show tunes to his own interpretation of contemporary styles, our guests will find his melodic inspirations a evocative background to the intoxicating scents of Willowwood's lilacs.

LIBATIONS and HORS D'OEUVRES: The Lilac Party is, in the tradition of the Tubbs and Dr. Blackburn, a cocktail party, so savoury tidbits, appetizers as well as a selection of artisanal cheeses and veggies are tastefully executed by Ross and Owren and will enhance your wine or selected bar choice.

LILACS! Yes, of course depending on Mother Nature, the gardens will be in Spring Bloom and Willowwood's collection of Lilacs as well. Get your nose ready - the fragrance is beyond wonderful. And our customary Lilac Party signature gift to each guest is a choice of one of several outstanding Lilac plantings to place in their own garden.
