Festival of Flowers

March 25, 2013


Providence Hospital Foundation’s 20th Annual Festival of Flowers topped any of their previous shows.  Here are some highlights.  I’ll show you more tomorrow.
This was a flower in the International Flower exhibit.
The entryway was surprisingly modern with an eclectic feel that was somewhat familiar . . .  what was it about that wall that I recognized?  It turned out to be the creation of one of Fairhope’s favorite artists, Ameri’ca Jones!  Father Nature Landscapes, owned by Andrew Robinson designed the cool fence, which sandwiched rounds of wood and grass, and Ameri’ca did the heavy metal floral job!
This table setting was one of my favorites because of the beautiful, rustic arbor,
designed by The Gilded Nest in Mobile.

This is a close up of the arbor’s corner.
I also spotted this beautiful bouquet of old enamel flower pins.
This was the “Dinner on Mobile Bay” table, designed by Emme’s Furniture Gallery in Mobile.  Notice the oyster shell clusters on the table. They almost looked like flowers!
Old illuminated door panels were part of the backdrop to the table setting.
There was sand and seashells placed underneath, and vials of white azaleas climbing up the table legs.
Very clever indeed!
More from the Festival tomorrow!

    Thanks so much for sharing this at The DIY Dreamer… From Dream To Reality last week! HAPPY EASTER!!

  • I would have loved to walk through this festival. So fun. I want to make something with pins, a bridal bouquet or something like that. Love your picture of one here.

  • Now why haven’t I thought of a bouquet of enamel flower pins?? What a fabulous idea!

    Thanks so much for joining in this week!


  • Your nosegay of enamel pins brings back fun memories of my college days. How I wish I still had mine.
    Happy Easter!

  • Don’t most of us have a couple of those flower pins floating around in the jewelry box? I know I have that same butterfly which Son gave me when he was in school. I feel an arrangement coming on!

    Your photos are lovely and full of good ideas. Thanks!

  • I was transported back to my college days when I spied the cluster of daisy brooches. I can remember wearing my big yellow daisy on my polyester (it was the rage) Easter dress. I had a matching yellow and white hat to go with my outfit. I thought I was quite the fashion plate! tee hee!
    Thanks for the great post.

  • I love the arbor and table…beautifully done. I love the way the chair is upholstered as well. Thanks for sharing.

  • I love the table setting in the arbor too.

  • All are lovely. I amazed at the use of the oyster shells.

  • I can’t decide which of these is my favorite photo! What a gorgeous flower show…so many talented artists. The oyster clusters on the table are a clever touch, as well as the bouquet of floral pins. There’s enough inspiration to go around!

  • Looks like the flower show was wonderful! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the bouquet of enamel flower pins.
