An Evening of Roses

Eleanor's favorite blossom, the rose, will be the star of this elegant open-air soiree. Step into her rose garden for an evening out among friends, celebrating the rose for its fragrance, flavor and beauty.

Sip a signature rose-inspired cocktail, created by Chartreuse Kitchen & Cocktails just for the occasion. Sample a selection of exquisite rose desserts from Pinwheel Bakery.

Compare the scents of different rose varieties, and create your own custom botanical perfume with Alchemy Perfumery. And learn the secrets of rose care, collection and drying for potpourri with our own Ford House experts.

Space is limited at this event. Cost is $50 for Ford House members and $60 for non-members. Each ticket includes light bites and two signature cocktails. Guests must be 21 and older.

This is an outdoor event. Dress for an evening on the grounds and the weather! The evening will be held rain or shine. In case of inclement weather, we will host the evening under the tent at the historic garage, with an option to stroll the grounds if weather permits.
