A Fantasy Garden Event
On Saturday, May 31, 2014, from 10:00am- 5:00pm, a one-of-a-kind experience and fundraiser will be held on the grounds of the historic Chimneys mansion in the heart of Black Rock, CT. Vines & Vignettes will be a visual feast for garden enthusiasts and a day full of unique garden vignettes featuring over 30 vendors and boutiques.
Some of Fairfield County’s finest landscape designers, nurseries, and garden antique dealers will create over twenty vignettes on the exquisite grounds of the Georgian-Revival mansion. These vignettes will feature the many garden spaces, terraces and walk ways encompassing over three acres overlooking the St. Mary’s-By-The-Sea waterfront. Vintage and antique automobiles will be on display in the estate’s original slate Motor Court. Visitors are invited to spend enchanting day perusing the elaborate grounds, getting garden and decorating ideas, shopping the specialty boutiques, or taking part in short workshops lead by leading landscape and design experts while sampling foods and wine from the region.
This year’s event will be especially exciting with the addition of Emmy-nominated TV Host, best-selling author and America’s Leading Lifestyle Expert, Mar Jennings! Mar will be sharing his expertise in decorating and design with our guests during the event. Learn more about Mar’s expertise here.
Some of our premier Vendors who will be transforming the unique grounds for our guest’s enjoyment include: Austin Ganim Landscape Design LLC, Ganim’s Garden Center & Florist LLC, Oliver’s Nursery, Lindquist Landscape Design, Beau Maas Antiques, and Epicure of Design.
All proceeds and donations to Vines & Vignettes will benefit St Ann Academy, Christian Heritage School, and The Black Rock Food Pantry. These funds will help expand school programs and resources, support students and teachers and allow these schools to continue their mission of providing quality education and support to the children of our community.
