Wednesday, November 30th, 2016
From 5:30pm to 8:00pm

In a color scheme of black and white, this societal affair will radiate elegance and refinement on the often blustery Mendocino Coast bringing a chance of laughter and playfulness to the attendees. The darkness will not only be shattered by the warmth and comfort of the party, but also expounded by the gaiety of the Gardens exploding with a brilliance of opulent lights and color. Casual or formal black and white attire is favored but not required. Plan for an evening of treats and surprises for all the senses.

Another Gala in the books... what a wonderful evening!

On the last evening in November, the crisp darkness of the night air became illuminated by the warmth and laughter of a gorgeous crowd dressed in their best black and white attire. Guests were greeted with a sparkling glass of bubbly as they gazed about the décor of elegant lanterns, illuminated manzanita branches, and a giant sparkling chandelier – all in a scheme of black and white. The center of the tent displayed a delicious buffet of gourmet appetizers including seared ahi tuna nachos, sausage and cheese stuffed crimini mushrooms, Mediterranean lavash wraps, and much more.

Shortly after six o'clock, the Mendocino String Quartet took to the stage, serenading the crowd with soothing melodies. Guests strolled under the stars, glass of wine in hand, for an exclusive glimpse at the light displays outside. The Gloriana Carolers added a spark of holiday jubilation as guests moved toward the dessert table which showcased a stunning display of black and white candies, macarons, and other treats to delight the senses. In a celebration of light in the dark, this year's Festival of Lights Gala was truly the place to be.
