Blooms along the Hudson

“Spring Blossoms” is a flower show set to open the 2017 season at Lyndhurst, the National Trust for Historic Preservation site in Tarrytown.

Floral decorations arranged throughout the mansion will recreate Lyndhurst’s heyday, when famed railroad magnate and financier Jay Gould and his family were in residence and blooms from the property’s vast greenhouses decorated the mansion.

Florists and designers from throughout the region are creating lavish arrangements for the event.

Visitors may either take guided tours of the historic home or simply walk through at their leisure to see the various floral displays. It’s an event designed to also provide inspiration for future brides, wedding planners and hostesses.

“Spring Blossoms” will be held from April 7 to 9. It opens with a Preview Party featuring the designers and co-sponsored by the Garden Club of Irvington, set for 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. April 7. The show will continue from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 8 and 9.

Suggested donation for the preview party is $25; tickets for April 8 and 9 are $18.
