JEAN SHAFIROFF STUNNING AT HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY

Jean Shafiroff



The Horticultural Society of New York held their 18th Annual New York Flower Show Dinner Dance at the Pierre Hotel recently. Twenty-five of the tri-state area’s premier floral, fashion and interior designers transformed the Pierre Hotel’s ballroom into spectacular garden. Each designer paid tribute to some of the most notable gardens in the world with their visionary tablescapes.



The Horticulture Society, along with some of New York City’s most influential socialites and designers, enjoyed a black tie dinner dance amidst the towering floral tabletop displays. During the gala, The Hort recognized Robert Couturier, legendary architect and decorator, and Barbara Israel, distinguished antique garden ornament dealer and author.



Founded in 1900, and incorporated in 1902, with J. P. Morgan, Louis C. Tiffany, and J.J. Phelps among its earliest members, the goal of the Horticultural Society was to further the love and knowledge of horticulture through informative monthly meetings, formal lectures and seasonal flower shows.
