If you didn’t have the opportunity to check out the 2019 PHS Philadelphia Flower Show March 2nd-10th at the PA Convention Center, you came to the right place! Featured is my favorite installations at the 2019 Flower Show.
This years flower show was epic! As soon as I walked in I was amazed by the insane installations. Flower sculptures and exhbits were everywhere!
One of my favorite installations was the flowers hanging from the ceiling. They do a hanging flower installation every year with a different artist.
Each year, about 250,000 people attend the event, which features horticulture and landscape design, entertainment and vendors.
The theme of this years Flower Show was Flower Power. It was chosen in honor of the 50th Anniversary of Woodstock! The 50th Anniversary festival is taking place August 16th-18th 2019 in Watkins Glen, New York that will feature 50 artists on the lineup. Artists headlining include Jay-Z, Santana, Miley Cyrus, Chance the Rapper, and Halsey. Tickets go on sale on April 22nd.
The Flower show featured a Woodstock installation. It really made you feel like you were in Watkins Glen 50 years ago with all hippies jammin out to the Rolling Stones.
Not only that, they also had a fashion installation with dresses made out of flowers and grass.
My favorite floral dress was the one made out of pine cones!
Another one of my favorite installations was the People & Flowers HAPPY TOGETHER Installation by Shaffer Designs. Happy Together explores the connection between flowers and human beings. Throughout history, people have used flowers for many reasons. This illuminated istallation represents how the Power of Flowers makes people happy.
What do flowers do for you? Flowers make me inspired!
Daisies and Orchids are my favorite. I was in heaven when I saw this orchid installation!
The very last installation I saw was sooo dope! It was an installation inspired by “White Rabbit”, one of Grace Slick’s earliest songs. It replicated what a trip on acid might look like during Woodstock days. So trippy just looking at it. LOL
The next installation that stood out to me was very different from all the others. I loved it because it incorporated art and music! Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd, Sublime and Woodstock festival paintings were replicated by other artists.
