What was more striking at the New York Botanical Garden's Annual Orchid Dinner--the guests, or the elaborate, fanciful floral arrangements that adorned The Rainbow Room last night? The dinner, which benefits the NYBG's renowned orchid collections, consistently brings together professionals from the worlds of interior and floral design for the intricate centerpieces.
