Some Miscellaneous Flower Show Photos

Let me apologize from the beginning of this post by saying that I'm probably somewhat "jaded" when it comes to flower shows, so I don't always get great photos.  I tend to focus on details that I think are cool or inspirational rather than what is showiest, biggest, or most flowery.  I'm working in our exhibit garden (GPPA) again most of the day, so I'll try to get some other shots from around the Show.

This is a pretty cool ceiling treatment for a wedding, I thought.  It was done by one of the event companies in Atlanta, A Legendary Event.  Hundreds of pieces of wide ribbon weighted down with crystals and a few butterflies here and there.
This entry display was not the biggest award winner in its division, but I thought it was just beautiful, and a nice relief from the "two boxwoods in black iron urns with annual color" that marks most Atlanta doors. 
A couple of window box exhibits that I thought were very effective, mostly because of the sheer volume and opulence the designers put into them. 

I really loved this effect, below.  The exhibit was still under construction, but I thought the uplit Coral Bark Maples against that stucco wall was just incredible! 
A tulip I found appealing in one of the retail exhibits.  Don't even know its name...... 
Have I gloated about the awards we won in our exhibit yet?  Have I mentioned this is the first time I had done an exhibit of this size?  Or that most of my team had never done a flower show exhibit before?

Here's one shot of our exhibit, depicting a mid-century Modern, in-town Atlanta house.  We are in the educational division, so the goal was to show a realistic garden that can exist with very low maintenance and no chemicals.  These are the floor panels that Chuck built......more about that later!


  1. Fabulous, Fabulous, Fabulous!!! You are sooo talented.
