Today was the last day of the 2008 Pennsylvania Horticultural Society’s -2008 Philadelphia Flower Show  – themed Jazz It Up!

The Flower Show is always a lot of fun and as Horticultural Society Member s we never miss it.

Because of my hectic schedule this week we had to wait till the last day – fortunately we snuck in early before the crowds

The colors this year were AMAZING because of the Jazz It Up – New Orleans  theme

The best part for me is knowing and having worked with so many of the competitors…

Check out the main entrance – an exhibit by our friends as Lamsback Floral Decorators – an archway of floating piano keys complete with waterfall


Then the surrounded the centerpiece with six different color contrasted jazz lounges…

Robertsons did a modern musical dining arrangement


And Jamie Rothstein took a more romantic twist on NOLA with a garden and parlor display


Absolutely worth the trip …if you can put the first week in March on your calendar for next year the flower show is worth the trip.
