Dallas Arboretum Food and Wine Festival 2019

Last year I wrote, “I have decided that the epitome of happiness is an ice cream cone in your left hand, a glass of wine in your right hand, and live jazz during cherry blossom season at The Dallas Arboretum” and I said the exact same thing to my friend Matt this year, as we…

Adventures in Neverland at Dallas Arboretum

There are a lot of fantastic events in Dallas in the fall but this is one of my favorites! Autumn at the Arboretum boasts 4,500 Chrysanthemums, 150,000 fall blooming plants,…

Dallas Arboretum Food and Wine Festival 2018

I have decided that the epitome of happiness is an ice cream cone in your left hand, a glass of wine in your right hand, and live jazz during cherry blossom season at The Dallas Arboretum. What a way to kick off spring! The second annual Dallas Arboretum Food and Wine Festival was sold out…

Dallas Blooms 2018

Dallas Blooms is a gardener’s delight. The Dallas Arboretum festival is especially welcome after a particularly dreary, cold winter here in Dallas.  Over 500,000 spring-blooming blossoms pepper the 66-acre botanical garden. You’ll see over one hundred varieties of tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, pansies, violas, poppies, and thousands of other spring-blooming annuals and perennials. What I love so much…

Christmas at Dallas Arboretum

It’s no secret that I love the Dallas Arboretum. Add half a million Christmas lights and twelve yuletide gazebos and you’ll be bursting with holiday cheer by the time you leave! Twelve twenty-five foot gazebos are installed annually across the Dallas Arboretum’s sixty-six acres for its annual 12 Days of Christmas exhibit. It takes over…

Dallas Arboretum Food and Wine Festival 2017

“Oh what a night!” The Dallas Arboretum was in fine form last night at its inaugural food and wine festival.

Tea at Dallas Arboretum

If I’m perfectly honest, I’m not a fan of tea. But I am a tremendous fan of any excuse to eat multiple courses in the middle of the day so I happily accepted an invitation to Friendship Tea at The Dallas Arboretum. I’m pleased to tell you that I loved it so much, I actually…

The 12 Days of Christmas at Dallas Arboretum

The Twelve Days of Christmas It was a perfect day to explore outside. The sun was shining and there wasn’t a single cloud obstructing the endless blue sky. I asked my dad to join me for a tour of The 12 Days of Christmas at Dallas Arboretum. Adorable father-daughter date, right? This is the second year…
