A historic estate on Blackland Road set the scene for more than 125 guests to gather for Buckhead Heritage’s Garden Party in June.
Funds raised support the nonprofit’s mission to identify, preserve and promote Buckhead’s historic resources. The private 1937 home was designed by noted architect Philip T. Shutze. Guests gathered for drinks, appetizers and the opportunity to explore the property’s gardens that prominently feature hydrangeas. Color-coordinated specialty drinks named after the blooms, such as Summer Crush and Shady Lady, were served. Local musician Judy Boehm provided a live soundtrack for guests as they strolled the gardens. Master Gardener Lisa Ethridge spoke about hydrangeas, and Buckhead honey and plant potting experts were on hand to answer gardening questions. Buckhead Heritage President John Beach thanked Presenting Sponsor Arrow Exterminators, and a Shutze “ghost” led house tours and highlighted key architectural features.
