Princess Grace’s 65th Wedding Anniversary: Celebrating her Bridal Dress & Pressed Flower Workshop

Spend an afternoon as Princess Grace might have - creating a pressed flower crown and reminiscing about her gown on the 65th anniversary of her famous wedding.

We are delighted to open this program with a brief presentation about Grace Kelly's iconic wedding gown by Kristina Haugland, the Le Vine Associate Curator of Costume and Textiles and Supervising Curator for the Study Room at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and author of two books on Grace Kelly’s style.

We’ll also explore the Princess' connections with two New Jersey Governors who lived at Morven, including the special luncheon Monaco's royal family enjoyed there, and learn about her love of creating pressed flower art.

In this pressed flower workshop, led by Morven's Curator of Education and Public Programs Debra Lampert-Rudman, students will recreate one of Princess Grace's favorite designs: a pressed flower crown – a design she chose for the invitation to her first Paris exhibition.
