Philadelphia Flower Show 2011

“Springtime in Paris”
The 2011 Philadelphia International Flower Show

With all the snow we have had this Winter the 2011 Philadelphia International Flower Show was an event I was looking forward to. There have been years in the past when we have gone and it has been freezing, but today it was just perfect! For the first time I believed Spring really was just a few weeks away! The show is a tradition in the city since 1829. The annual event — the largest indoor flower show in the country with 10 acres of floral designs and lush plants — is an easy day trip and always a lot of fun, as well as  great inspiration! I was really excited for this years theme, “Springtime in Paris”. I was expecting displays evoking French grandeur and romance, courtyards and cafes... But in my opinion there was only one display that really stood out as a Parisian paradise to me... and not surprisingly it was also voted “Best in Show.” Take a look...

I LOVED the “flower curtains”. 
Especially  with the ornate gold scones on both sides...

The show is scheduled to run from Sunday, March 6 through Sunday, March 13
