With a nod to “Secret gardens”, the National Trust for the Cayman Islands hosted Hatitude, one of their major fund raising events of the year on Saturday March 20th. Ristorante Pappagallo was transformed into an enchanting secret garden thanks to décor sponsors Celebrations and the Garden Club of the Cayman Islands.
