I love how they recreated this beautiful room inside the convention center. The cloches contained real flowers. When I first saw this I was overwhelmed by the sheer number of flowers crammed into one room!
The show has very strict rules about the materials that can be used which you can read about HERE.
This is the first rule in the rule in the book:
All entries must include fresh or dried plant material; forced
plants must predominate, and the emphasis should be on color.
All exhibits must be kept in show condition. Plant material must be kept
fresh. Unsightly or wilted plant material must be replaced. No artificial plant
material is permitted in any exhibit.
I guess the rules don't apply to the mannquin.
In addition to the French Parlor, there were cloches hiding in several places.
These aren't officially cloches, but they were certainly beautiful.
They were part of the competition.
These charming cloches were for sale in the vendor section. It was so hard to resist buying everything I saw.
I love how the glass was blown to fit the cage.
I think this was my favorite of all.
Beautiful, but it didn't look very practical to me. Thanks to Marty for hosting. Come join the party!
