Delight your senses in this special outdoor garden event at a private home in La Jolla that will transport you to Giverny, France. As you indulge in a French themed picnic, apple dessert, and wine, Aileen will share tips on how you can incorporate the timeless beauty of impressionist painter Claude Monet’s art and garden into your home.
