Philadelphia International Flower Show
Living in Philadelphia has been such a blast this year. PB and I tried new restaurants, ran Kelly Drive multiple times, found “our” market, visited the Art Museum, and more.
One activity I couldn’t wait for is the Philadelphia International Flower Show. Last year, this exact weekend, my dad went with my (at the time future) father in law to the Flower Show while I was at a surprise bridal shower held for me by my mother in law and sister in law. My dad was there to surprise me for dinner, and my father in law took him to the show to pass the time until then. Later on, when the surprise was revealed (and tears flowed for the third time that day of course) my dad had the most gorgeous flowers in his hand. He also had a slew of photos on his phone of the most beautiful design of flowers made into a stiletto. Ever since seeing those photos I have been waiting in anticipation for this year’s show.
Well, the show is here! Last night my mother in law and I went over to the Philadelphia Convention Center for the show, and it was even better than I imagined! This year’s theme is Passport to the World, and upon entering the show there is a very large hot air balloon that is actually the design of a globe. All the continents are made out of roses.
I will let the photos speak for themselves. The highlights:
By far my absolute favorite:
(I want to live in this design)
And a few of us, just for fun:
Can we say, SPRING IS HERE?
