You can tell when spring is nearly here…or you can at least begin to feel like it’s nearly here.


The first week in March is always the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society’s – Philadelphia Flower Show.


There are always TONS of exhibits – landscape, party and event display, floral design by garden clubs, as well as plant specimen competitions.


“C” and I took a half day this week and headed into town – while we both really enjoy the landscape displays and get lots of new design ideas for the yard…I go for the party and event display.


Each year several of the design companies I work with throughout the year on weddings enter… their work is just amazing


This year’s theme for the flower show was Legends of Ireland – lots of green, lots of great stone statuary, and in many cases people incorporating very rustic elements and landscape into their displays.


Below are several examples of work by floral designers:


Robertson’s Flowers – incorporated elements of landscape, a country cottage and a party into one display.

Jamie Rothstein Floral Design– “The Rainbow” – most original design concept.       



Lambsback Floral Decorators – A fun floating party –“Pretty in Pink”
