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.

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.

In Bloom: The Fund for Park Avenue

The famous Park Avenue tulips are on full display to usher in the spring season. Such gorgeous plantings only sprout from the careful planning and dedication of The Fund for Park Avenue members, which Scully & Scully is proud to support.  We held our annual fundraiser and party this week to celebrate spring and ensure the beautification of Park Avenue continues for many months to come. The night also offered the opportunity to host author Holly Peterson’s new book, The Idea of Him.  Holly delighted guests with a book signing, and even used characters from her book as “guests” at one of the elegant place settings throughout the store. With tulips galore, sparkling crystal, and the finest of table settings, the evening was the perfect way to celebrate spring.
