Las Vegas Part 4:The Rest of the Story...
So it's been an exceptionally busy month and my blog slipped by my To Do list! (for those that know me- Imagine that- I forgot something! ) I still have more pictures and fun things to share from Symposium in Las Vegas. First up:
The flower arrangements in the Bellagio and Ceasar's Palace were A-MAZ-ING! It may be hard to get prospective from the picture but this arrangement was huge and gorgeous and I wanted to pack it up and take it home with me. Unfortunately, the casinos tend to frown on that, so I just "ooohhh" and "aaahhh"-ed from a distance.
Now here, I was torn between the beautiful flowers and the stunning Dale Chihuly blown glass flowers suspended from the ceiling. If you aren't familiar with him, go here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dale_Chihuly
I thought these ceiling decorations were pretty cool.
The Program "Innovative Approaches to Interior Decoration" by Araik Galstyan featured these HUGE spheres, from 6' - 10' (at least) diameter, decorated with all kinds of flowers, mosses, wire, leaves, accents, etc.
Not the best picture, but hopefully you can see the weaving of floral materials.
To give you an inside prospective to how these spheres were used in the show, and what exactly a floral runway show looks like:
