I'm back from the flower Show. I left with a clean desk and a mom taken to the hospital. I spend my time between the show and the hospital. Mom is home now and I came back to a ton of work at the new job and a few new employees! Anyway, I enjoyed my self at the show.
There wasn't any dolly things at the show this year. I had to hunt around in downtown Center City for my dolly fix and I hit my new favorite thrift store too. I will show you what I got in my next post. The scout troop I work with did very well at the show. They entered 7 plants and got 5 ribbons. They are thrilled! When I upload my Flower Show pictures I will let you know that too.
I want to show you the highlight of this years flower show. Visitors to the 2013 PHS Philadelphia Flower Show were invited to show off their own creativity in the new Make & Take Room. Show guests made a fabulous “fascinator” – an elegant floral headpiece -- to rival those seen at the royal wedding. For inspiration, the PHS social media team has assembled a Pinterest board (no longer up) on fascinators, including images of extraordinary chapeaus worn by celebrities such as Lady Gaga and Sarah Jessica Parker. The cost was $10.00! By the second Saturday of the show, the room had made 40,000.00! I took a few pictures of ones that I saw. There were many more fabulous ones there!
This was the first one I saw. As you walked the floor you saw many women and girls with them on. It created a buzz! You could use live of artificial flowers. Your only limit was your imagination!
This is my sister. She work the Make & Take room most of the show. She coordinated her fascinator with what she wore everyday.
How do you like this one!
My friend Holly has her on and a corsage on her wrist too. We met this lady on the show floor with her's on and took this picture.
This one was great too!
I just loved this one on her! I took her picture with the queen.
This one is made from all plant material!
