It's an Escape to Paradise: a fun, two-hour party to celebrate the opening night of the Orchid Show!

And the flowers?
More than 10,000 orchids, all blooming at once. Be among the first to view the show. 

The ambience is Hawaiian; the music is the real thing (by Aloha Lives!, and yes, they're bringing dancers); and the food is paradise (think pomegranate-mango cocktails and passed hors d'oeuvres)! Stroll through the Greenhouses and galleries to experience the first night of our first-ever Orchid Show, starring orchids in all shapes and sizes, draped, arched, and woven throughout.

The Woman’s Board of the Chicago Horticultural Society presents Escape to Paradise. Spend your Valentine's Day with 10,000 orchids at this special Orchid Show Preview Evening. Join us!

Resort cocktail attire encouraged

Co-chaired by Carolyn Katz and Lorill Haynes

The Woman’s Board is in its third year of “Growing the Future,” a $1 million pledge to the Chicago Botanic Garden.

Generously supported by the Hawaiian Islands.
