2017 Philadelphia Flower Show – Holland, Flowering the World

Last week I got to enjoy a super special mama’s morning out – to the Philadelphia Flower Show! Brooks was in school, my parents came down to the city to look after Graham + my neighbor, Kelly + I snuck away from the littles for a day among the blooms!

For a little fun, check out my recaps from previous Flower show visits: 2016 Flower Show – Explore National Parks / 2013 Flower Show  – Brilliant! / 2012 Flower Show – Hawaii

If you aren’t from the Philadelphia area, the Flower Show is a pretty big deal around these parts. It takes over the Convention Center in Philadelphia for a week or so and it showcases flowers in beautiful unique ways.

Hundreds of flowers hanging from the ceiling?

Sure, why not.

Each year, there is a different theme that corresponds with the actual Flower Show. In years past they have done National Parks, London, Hawaii and more! It’s always so unique and getting to experience different parts of the world via floral decor is really fun.

This year’s theme was Holland and the designers did an incredible job transporting each Flower Show visitor straight to the Netherlands! 

Tulips everywhere, bikes to highlight the beautiful cycling paths, windmills and more! I especially love the bridges over water!

I think it’s pretty clear that no mater how many pictures I took, nothing would really be the same as actually being there – smelling the flowers, listening to the music, enjoying the crowds. But I thought it was worth it to share a little bit of my Flower Show experience with you, because it was an absolute blast and I love being able to look back at previous years shows! 

And because you KNOW I couldn’t go to the Flower Show and NOT wear floral {#rules}

Here are some more of my favorite snaps from this year’s Flower Show.

I’d love to know if you went and what you thought! And if you aren’t local, do they do anything like this in your area? Please share! 
And a special thanks to my friends at FTD for hooking me up with tickets to this year’s Flower Show! I’m so excited I was able to go {especially baby-free! #momwin} and enjoy all the Flower Show with my friend! We had an absolute blast and can’t wait for “Wonders of Water” in 2018!
