The annual Viva Garden soirée was held on a glorious and breezy evening during San Antonio’s Fiesta 2022 to celebrate The Court of the Grand Tour. The honorees included The Royal Household’s Her Gracious Majesty, The Queen Ian Brusenhan, and Her Royal Highness, The Princess Marguerite Stewart. The in-town Duchesses and the Visiting Duchesses and their families and friends were also honored at the al fresco event.
Guests arrived to cascading Fiesta streamers hung from 30 feet high amongst the oak trees lining the entrance of the Terrell Hills home of Nancy and Edward Steves and Gloria and Miguel Dilley, swirling to the breeze as a lovely welcome to all the guests. The Viva Garden soirée was elegantly catered by Club Giraud.
The event was hosted by a group of women and men from San Antonio and beyond who continue to organize and produce the evening from year to year. The Texas Cavaliers’ King Antonio, Bart Simpson, and his court attended the party along with many of The German Club Order of the Alamo members.
