Autumn at the Arboretum 2021

It’s just not fall without a trip to the annual Dallas Arboretum pumpkin village! This is one of my favorite events of the whole year because the only thing I love as much as strolling through a beautiful garden is pumpkins. Named one of America’s best pumpkin festivals by Fodor’s, it’s always a delight to…

Dallas Arboretum Food and Wine Festival 2021

I’m back, ladies and gentlemen! After fourteen months of quarantining, it could not have felt more special to stroll around my beloved Dallas Arboretum for the fourth annual Food and Wine Festival.

It’s the fifteenth year of Dallas Arboretum’s beloved Autumn at the Arboretum festival, which has been named one of the best fall festivals in the country by several national publications.

Dallas Arboretum Food and Wine Festival 2019

Adventures in Neverland at Dallas Arboretum

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. The temperature was practically perfect for the sold-out affair and the garden couldn’t have looked better. Thousands of tulips and cherry trees were in bloom, subtly perfuming the evening air. I took my food friend Kat with me and…
