Scully & Scully and The Fund for Park Avenue: Tulips in Bloom

A stroll along Park Avenue reveals a lovely and colorful display of radiant tulips. The tulip plantings are carefully cultivated by The Fund for Park Avenue, responsible for the beautification of Park Avenue, including selected artwork, landscaping, and the annual Christmas trees displayed along New York City’s most famous avenue.

Scully & Scully hosted members and supporters of the organization this week to celebrate Spring and the arrival of the freshly planted tulips. Host Committee members designed beautiful tabletops from the store’s vast array of fine china, crystal, and silver offerings. The mix of fresh flowers made for a truly delightful, and inspirational, visual treat.

The evening also included a signing by author Betsy Pinover Schiff and her book, “Sidewalk Gardens of New York” which chronicles the “greening” of the city over the past 15 years.

Many thanks to President Barbara McLaughlin and to all of the Committee Members for making the evening such a success.

The Oscar de le Renta Influence

The influence of fashion designer Oscar de la Renta will remain. Known for elegant, feminine silhouettes and outfitting the world’s most glamorous women, his designs reflected an innate American sensibility. Form and function with classic pieces and feminine trimmings; lots of oversized bows, flower motifs, and the go-to designer for wedding gowns. The aesthetic was a reflection of the man himself, always poised, polished and emanating a high decree of decorum so rarely found today. A fixture of high society, his clientele ranged from Park Avenue to Hollywood and political royalty. A few images to pay tribute to a man of powerful vision and elegant execution, creating some of the 20th centuries most beloved fashion.

Springtime on Park Avenue: Tulips in Bloom


Springtime on Park Avenue ushers in the annual display of colorful tulips along New York City’s famous boulevard. Awash with color and beauty, the streets reflect the new vibrancy of the city as we welcome warmer weather. Yet the tulips, and other fine statues and artwork, do not come about without a concerted effort from the Fund for Park Avenue. Tasked with raising funds and awareness, the annual tulip plantings have become one of the city highlights.

Scully & Scully hosted a lovely reception, along with the Fund for Park Avenue and President Barbara McLaughlin, to celebrate Spring last week. A peek inside our party.
