Lake Martin Garden Paradise – Private tour of Jim Scott’s Lake Martin Garden and picnic with gardening expert Helen Phillips. Back by popular demand. This 12-acre property is 2/3 landscaped, a verdant forest wonderland where one can truly get lost in the natural beauty of endless wild and winding paths, al fresco dining areas, castle-like structures, caves, swimming ponds, treetop walkways and more, all peppered with thought-provoking quotes, playfully placed statues, imaginative play areas — for adults and children — and, of course, a wine cellar. We went last year and could not have been more amazed!

Graciousness Revisited – SOLD OUT Escape back to the days when dining was an elegant experience. Renowned host Michael Anderson’s exquisite table settings and inspired meals make for a delightfully intimate brunch. His apartment is located in a circa 1852 Greek Revival house. The use of ornate Corinthian capitals was most unusual in this area during the antebellum era. In the 1960s, Frank Traylor, Sr. and his brother Ed of Traylor Construction renovated the house, created four apartments and added the circular staircase. Last year’s guests had such a good time that they stayed until 4 pm!

An Enchanted Evening – SOLD OUT Join Pat and Barbara Holder for a summer evening in their exquisitely-appointed home and garden. Sip cocktails while appreciating the English and Continental furniture, Chinese export porcelain collection and early 20th century paintings including several of the Fauvism style. The entire home feels as if it were created solely for the perfect display of art yet its style is welcoming and livable. A Southern summer picnic supper will be served in the garden loggia. Guests will then step into the garden for a champagne and dessert stroll.
