Inspired by one of the most splendid balls held by Caroline Astor, and based on the actual list of flowers used to decorate the mansion's ballroom, Caroline’s Four Hundred captures at once the fresh-cut bouquets, the exotic woods of the ballroom, the potted palms and apple blossoms that lined the hallways, and the light crisp essence of champagne wafting through the crowds.
