Ellie Cullman of Cullman & Kravis – May 2, 2019
Woodway Country Club
Join us as this year’s Lecture & Luncheon will feature the celebrated designer and author Ellie Cullman of Cullman & Kravis. Adding to your luncheon experience, accompanying Ellie will be her design partners, Claire Ratliff, Lee Cavanaugh, Alyssa Urban, & Sarah Ramsey. Following in the tradition set by the legendary Bunny Williams in 2017, and celebrated architect Peter Pennoyer and interior designer Katie Ridder in 2018, we are thrilled to welcome Ellie Cullman and her partners to our annual Lecture & Luncheon
The Tour & Lecture is a unique opportunity for hundreds of garden enthusiasts and anyone who appreciates the beauty of the outdoors to be inspired by an outstanding garden setting. It is an adult only self-guided tour, allowing the attendees to visit the garden at their own pace. Last year we have added a lecture component, so attendees can learn about the specific gardens and property. We are also excited to open the home so visitors can view the garden from the inside, allowing them to see how the exterior and interior designs come together to create a beautiful setting.
