Art lovers — this is one trip you cannot pass up! This magnificent and ground-breaking exhibition of Matisse’s cut-outs includes 100 pieces borrowed from public and private collections from around the world, plus a wide selection of related drawings, stained glass, and textiles. After our guided tour, guests will be free to explore the Museum’s other galleries on their own and grab a light bite in one of their cafes. We’ll finish up our day with an elegant Afternoon Tea at the Plaza Hotel’s newly renovated Palm Court.
“Longwood for the Holidays”
A Winter Wonderland at the Greenhouse at Longwood Gardens
Thursday, December 4th, 2014, 12:00 pm to 9:30 pm
Come with us to Longwood Gardens to experience a magical Winter Wonderland at the Brandywine Valley’s most heralded site of the season! Wander through a million twinkling lights, thousands of poinsettias, and magnificently decorated Christmas trees. Longwood’s docents will take us on a special tour of their stunning greenhouses and relate the history of this premier horticultural display garden. An energetic and enthusiastic holiday “sing along” will be followed by a lavish Yuletide Buffet Dinner in the sophisticated Terra Cotta Room. After dinner we’ll have plenty of time to wander the gardens, take in the holiday trains, the dancing fountains and floating tree display, or visit their delightful gift shop.
