PHILADELPHIA ADVENTURES: THE PHILLY FLOWER SHOW

If you are obsessed with flowers just as much as I am, it is a MUST that you attend the PHS Philadelphia Flower Show held at the Philadelphia Convention Center. It is one of the nation’s largest and longest-running horticultural event and features stunning displays by the world’s premier floral and landscape designers.

Started in 1829, the show introduces the newest plant varieties, gardens and design concepts, and organic and sustainable practices. This year, the show celebrated the centennial of the National Park Service and PA’s majestic natural landscapes, rich history, and vibrant culture. The 2016 Flower Show theme “Explore America” took visitors through acres of displays inspired by iconic parks like Acadia and Cape Cod, Valley Forge and Shenandoah, Yellowstone, and Yosemite and many more!

As soon as I walked in, I was so overwhelmed with the vibrant and beautiful colors of every plant or flower I saw. For those looking to hire designers, they set up arrangements for those planning celebrations. It was simply breathtaking!

In addition to the flower and plant displays and demonstrations of park rangers, there were many vendors where you could purchase merchandise for your garden or trinkets to decorate your home with. My boyfriend and I took to the wine and spirits vendor where they offered wine, vodka and brandy tastings. In addition, they had a butterfly room so that guests could explore the wonders and uniqueness of the special arthropods.

If you ever get the chance to experience God’s creation all in one place, I would do so next year! You won’t want to miss it.
