Hepful things to know before you go >>

Garden & Fun will celebrate the full bloom of Atlanta's springtime in an elegant setting: the lovingly restored 1939 Patterson-Carr House. One of architect Philip Trammell Shutze's last commissions, the home is designed to appear as a charming English cottage with multiple expansions. The charming interior features an extensive entryway mural painted by Athos Menaboni. The grounds are equally memorable; the four-acre wooded site contains multiple gardens, courtyards, fountains, a swimming pool, and a gun house.

Guests are free to wander the property, exploring the home's gracious interior spaces and delightful outdoor areas. Small plate stations will feature an array of tempting tastes, and several bars will offer your choice of libation, including the evening's signature mint cocktail. Live music will fill the air and revelers will dance the evening away in the band tent.

Join the Trust and Gala chairmen Elizabeth and Mike Nadal and Carey and Bill Peard in honoring Beauchamp Carr at a fabulous fun party with live entertainment, a full bar, and tasty offerings from Atlanta's finest caterers.

Dress is cocktail attire.
