At Home in the Garden

Benefits Coral Gables Museum

Villa Serena
3551 Brickell Avenue, Miami

The Coral Gables Museum will present At Home in the Garden, a beautiful afternoon garden party at the former home of William Jennings Bryan, Villa Serena. The event will celebrate the home’s 100th anniversary and will serve to honor its current owner, Adrienne Arsht, for her efforts to preserve the historic residence. Villa Serena was acquired by Ms. Arsht in 1996, and she has fully restored the home. She also assisted in the preservation of the lovely Cliff Hammock bayfront neighborhood.

The garden party will be held on the expansive lawn of Villa Serena overlooking Biscayne Bay. Entertainment will be provided by the University of Miami School of Music. Vintage garden party attire is requested.

Individual tickets are $200, and a limited number of $300 VIP tickets will be available, which will also include a pre-garden party reception with Ms. Arsht at Indian Spring, her main residence located adjacent to Villa Serena. Event sponsorships begin at $1500 and include seating. Proceeds benefit the Coral Gables Museum’s educational programs.
