Afterwards, he and I were able to spend about 1/2 hour walking the show. The final judging was happening but the show was not yet open for the preview afforded the members of the Horticultural Society. It was wonderful to try to take it all in before the crowds streamed in.
One of my favorite displays was the one that represented Milan and was created by AIFD members. Each of the regions of Italy had their own area and Milan is known for their fashion, of course! Dresses, jewelry, hats and even shoes were all created using flowers. This display was judged to be the best of the show and I'm not surprised!
I also really enjoyed the "Day at the Spa" and "Atlantic" displays. Each were done by very talented floral shops that transported you from the show to their glorious worlds!!
