Step with us into the opulent world of Rough Point, a Gilded Age mansion with a secret garden just a breath away from the Atlantic Ocean. Once the summer home belonging to Doris Duke, this sprawling Newport estate has been preserved to reflect the beauty and eccentricities of the heiress, art collector, traveler, philanthropist and horticulturist. On June 22nd, we’ll be taking a page from Doris’s book, laced within her gardens, creating wild, exquisite arrangements by the sea.

Join renowned floral designers Nicolette Camille and Jill Rizzo of Studio Choo for an afternoon of floral arranging in the secret gardens of Rough Point Estate. We'll begin the day with a tour of the gardens, followed by hands on tutelage from Nicolette & Jill in the art of floral arranging in their lush garden style, and will finish the afternoon with a visit to the beautiful mansion. Refreshments will be provided throughout the day to fuel our creativity. 

Taking cues from the rich and verdant surroundings, Nicolette and Jill will guide students through the process of creating luxurious, rambling summer arrangements with the very best of seasonal blooms sourced from many Rhode Island flower farms as well as surrounding area growers. This collaboratively-led class is open to all levels of experience. Photographer Lesley Unruh will be capturing each student's arrangement.
