It is so important to identify things that you love to do and do them whenever you get a chance. This is self-care. I love the Flower Show and was super excited to attend the 2017 Philadelphia Flower Show this past weekend.
On saturday I took SEPTA’s regional rail train into center city to meet my friend and head to the 2017 Philadelphia Flower Show at the Philadelphia Convention Center. My train arrived a few minutes early. The ride was smooth and pleasant and so went the rest of the day.
The theme of the 2017 Philadelphia Flower show was Holland. Holland is the bicycle capital of the world. Bicycles were represented throughout the exhibits, as were windmills and bridges. The main display exhibited all three and was simply amazing. I loved the bright colors of the tulips. In addition to the flowers on the ground there were also flowers hanging from the ceiling that incorporated lights and music into the display. This display Welkom was perfectly positioned right at the main entry.
The main display was my favorite. However, all of the displays were amazing to see. You can tell the exhibitors paid great attention to detail in putting the displays together. I spoke to a Temple Student (shout out to my Alma Mater) who explained that they worked a a team and won 5 awards for their exhibit.
There were also cool activities at the Flower show like stepping into these huge shoes in the Ecodome. You could also have your picture taken at the #ILookToHer FTD Flowers both. If you happened to be their on opening day you may have received free flowers.
I had a great time and am already looking forward to next year’s Flower Show. To see more pictures and video from the 2017 Philadelphia Flower Show check out the video below and head over to Chasing Joy Facebook Page.
I love going to the Flower Show and go every year. What do you love to do? Do you make time to do it?
