Brilliant! It was this year’s PHS Philadelphia Flower show theme, but it also how most people thought about the event. The show that took place this past week from March 2-10, was innovative, beautiful and extraordinary. In other words, it was brilliant.
The British-inspired exhibits were the stars of the show, which celebrated Britain’s iconic landmarks and icons with a contemporary twist. One of the first things people saw were the showstopping Royal Gates, which were made of clear tubes and filled with flowers. Other exhibits included a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party, foggy London seascapes, Crown Jewel display and a giant Union Jack.
Along with the exhibits, attendees had the opportunity to buy home and garden products from 140 different vendors, sample wines and spirits, learn from garden experts and most importantly, see amazing flower sculptures!
The PHS Philadelphia Flower Show is the largest indoor flower show in the United States and attracts thousands of visitors from around the world each March. It was started in 1829 by the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society (PHS) with a goal to “garden, green and educate.”
