The best way to bring in warmer weather? A picnic in the park! If you were lucky enough to snag a sold-out ticket to Lark in the Park, then you're in for a day of fantastic local food, camaraderie in the most beautiful of settings, and the perfect opportunity to show your spring style.
The fundraising event by Friends of City Park benefiting New Orleans City Park takes place Sunday, March 14 in City Park. Guests will picnic with their pods during two daytime seatings at the 39th annual spring event, which will raise money for the Park's endowment and secure the future of City Park for generations to come. "Guests will enjoy safe features like exclusive access to the Botanical Garden with a personal picnic area, individual picnic baskets, and special performances by strolling entertainers."
If you won't be attending Lark in the Park in person, you can still support the event through the virtual auction (ends 3/14/21 at 8 p.m.). The auction features several amazing vacations and staycations, unique food and art experiences, wellness packages, and gorgeous clothes and accessories, including pieces that would be ideal to wear to the event itself.
To mark the intimate and glamorous occasion, auction chair and marketing co-chair Kristina Vitrano safely larked around the city to different New Orleans boutiques and found an abundance of flowery ensembles and accessories to don at the event. Below, fashion-forward finds that are perfect for an elegant get-together with dear friends. P.S. We recommend sporting flats or wedges in the grass.
