A breath of Spring: The Boston Flower Show


The other day, I had the luck to be able to attend the press preview of The Boston Flower Show. The preview was held before the big opening cocktail party and before the show was open to the public. Fresh flowers, beautiful installations, the smell of mulch and no crowds. Perfection.


Here's a sneak peak of the show. I'll have more photos up later on as well. Enjoy!

The 2011 Newport Flower Show with Shreve, Crump & Low table scape


The Boston Flower Show is running through Sunday the 20th at the Seaport World Trade Center. Throughout the show there will be gardening and floral arranging demos, lectures, cooking demos, competitions and vendors and book stores. A great way to kick off Spring!


If you would like my help on your design project, I would love to chat with you! Please email me. Thanks!

Linda, this is so beautiful! I cannot tell how I would love to see this in person. Looking forward to more pics. These tablescapes are just wonderful - right out of a fairy tale as well as the figure in the first pic.

Sally and I went down this morning. Spectacular! In addition to the beautiful landscaping displays, we loved the floral arrangement displays at the back of the show. And as usual I was a sucker for the bonsai exhibit.

Linda - I'm sorry I missed seeing you at the Preview Party, but I'm so glad you came and enjoyed the gardens! Thank you for sharing your photos; you chose some of my favorite views in the show.

Hi everyone - yes, it really began to feel like Spring with the flower show!

Nancy - great job with the lighting! I wasn't at the preview party, just the press preview from 3-5 that day.
