Romance at the Arboretum Kaki & Shelton Hopkins

On the most romantic day of the year, the Dallas Arboretum hosted “Romance at the Arboretum, ” an intimate candlelight dinner at the historic DeGolyer Estate Mansion at the garden. Proceeds from the evening benefitted the Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden programs.


About 50 guests sipped champagne and cocktails while noshing on delectable hors d’oeuvres. Southern Methodist University’s woodwind quintet delighted guests with a performance in the DeGolyer Library.  Following the concert, the guests enjoyed a three-course candlelight dinner that included roasted pheasant with Madeira sauce finished off with bittersweet chocolate torte.


“The Dallas Arboretum is one of the most romantic places in the city, and it was fitting to host this Valentine’s Day dinner there,” said Kaki Hopkins, chair of the Dallas Arboretum’s Year of the Children’s Garden. “Those who came thoroughly enjoyed the concert, the atmosphere of the decorated DeGolyer and many wonderful conversations. We hope to do it again next year.”
