Photos: Mint Museum's Allure of Flowers After Hours

Posted By on Tue, Jun 17, 2014 at 12:35 PM

Last night, the Mint Museum hosted Allure of Flowers After Hours, a fancy foodie fundraising event that incorporated flowers into, well, everything: from the garnish on the craft cocktails to the table decor to the appetizers to even dessert. The event included a tour of Allure of Flowers: Botanical Motifs in Craft, Design & Fashion (my favorite was the bold Nick Cave piece) and a five-course dinner. Here are some (low-quality, iPhone-quick) photos.
