Italian Flare Takes Over The Philadelphia Flower Show
There's something to be said for the wonders created during the Philadelphia Flower Show. Every year the show revolves around an amazing theme. Unfortunately, I didn't get to attend the Philadelphia Flower Show this year. Luckily for me, Marie Bushnell of Flowers By Marie filled me in on many of the major highlights. As owner of a popular flower shop in Warminster Pennsylvania, Marie was invited to do a presentation that represented the theme of the show, "Bella Italia." Beautiful Italy indeed!

Marie's presentation was very interesting to me. Following the theme of the show, she demonstrated how to create Italian inspired flower arrangements for a neighborhood progressive dinner. I'm glad that Marie was able to share her story with us because I love visual presentations that allow me to learn a new design technique. As a proud member of Flower Shop Network, she also displayed one of our colorful tote bags during her presentation. Thanks for the nod!

There were many things to enjoy at the Philadelphia Flower Show. The "Bella Italia" theme went over splendidly. During the show guests enjoyed acres of Italian gardens and flowers, wine and food tastings, daily live musical performances, culinary demonstrations by local celebrity chefs, many how-to demonstrations like Marie's, and too much more to list briefly. It sounds like a blast! I look forward to visiting next year. Hope to see you there!
Flower Shop Network representatives love attending floral industry trade shows and flower shows across the country. Unfortunately for us, we can't be at all of them. That's why we're so happy that friendly florists like Marie share their stories with us to share with you!
Viewing many of the pictures below made me sad that I had not been at the show, but also very glad for florists like Marie who shared their stories with me. Did you attend the show? Share your stories with us! Take a minute to brag on yourself or share your favorite portion of the show.
