Inspired by one of the most splendid of "The" Mrs. Astor's famous balls, Caroline's Four Hundred takes its name from the notable guests that represented the highest echelons of New York society. The matriarch of the St. Regis brand, Caroline’s rich traditions, from afternoon tea to midnight supper events, and love of fresh, abundant botanicals, can be found at every St. Regis across the globe. With rich notes of American Beauty roses – her favorite flower - green stems, the whitest lilies and the delicate sweetness of quince, apples and cherry blossoms, Caroline’s Four Hundred embraces the blooms that adorned her ballroom on that unforgettable evening.
