What a Wonderful Season

Since joining the Bonnet House staff, it has been a pleasure of mine to meet many of our wonderful members and I look forward to getting to know many more! This 2023-2024 season has been such fun, starting (for me) with Holiday Magic 2023 and culminating in our grand finale, our 15th Annual International Orchid Festival.

The Orchid Festival on April 6th and 7th was a hit! International orchid and plant vendors with gorgeous (and some rare) varieties filled the Bonnet House grounds with the many colors of spring. This year, another exciting part of our Orchid Festival was the Luau Lunch on the beautiful Bonnet House Veranda. A delicious tropical menu was prepared by Hugh’s Catering accompanied by refreshing Mai Tais, margaritas, and more! Luau Guests were thrilled to watch performances by Dance Dance Tahiti and to join in the Luau festivities by learning how to hula!

Now, that the season has come and gone, some of our members are traveling northward for the spring and summer. Whether you are here in Fort Lauderdale seasonally, occasionally, or year-round, I hope you have had a truly wonderful 2023-2024 season here! For those who have visited the museum, taken classes, participated in lectures, and enjoyed events: our hearts are now filled with wonderful memories shared together at Bonnet House.

Membership is a great way to support Bonnet House, all of our programs and help preserve this beautiful estate. I hope you will consider becoming a member or renewing your membership today.
