The Bella Vista Garden Club was so excited to host the first ever Garden Party, June 10, 2016 at the beautiful Scotsdale Golf Course. An estimated 600 attended! WOW! 

I would like to thank EVERYONE, but especially the Garden Club Committee and all the Garden Club volunteers that rallied together to make it all happen – food tent workers, garden layout workers and those that lent items to set the stage, the tireless golf cart drivers, the club members who made all the delicious food, and so many others. The Bella Vista Garden Club is an enthusiastic group who are doing everything in their power to keep Bella Vista Beautiful. 

Big shout out to the Bella Vista POA for furnishing the beautiful site and especially to Tommy Lee, Director of Business Development for all the extras including tents, power, ice, facilities, use of the golf carts, and so many other things too numerous to mention! 

We want to thanks the wonderful community supporters and contributors who helped make this event a success - Allen’s, Arvest Bank, Audrey’s Resale Boutique, Bank of the Ozarks, Birdsong Gardens & Landscaping, Cedar Lodge Arkansas Resort, The Chocolate Rose, City of Bella Vista, CVS, Garden City Nursery, Harps, Macadoodles, The Potting Shed, Rose Antiques, Rozenbridge, Two25 Gallery & Wine Bar and Walgreens. Thank you!!!!!! 

Thank you Bella Vista! We are proud to be a part of our beautiful community!
