Philadelphia Flower Show - Part 3 - The Riviera

Next on the flower tour is the orchid filled hotel on the Riviera. I love the idea of using recycled water bottles (the ones with the ridges) as vases for the orchids.

  1. I love your new blog background, Debbie! It's perfect for your flower show photos.

    I adore orchids. Especialy purple ones. The recycled bottles actually look pretty! Are those recycled plastic litre bottles also that contain the terrarium-like displays?

  2. Very clever to use the plastic bottles. Keep the pictures coming! These are great!

    Did you see at Crate and Barrel, they have made those ridged water bottles into glass now?

  4. Great photos and lots of detail to look at. What a wonderful time you must have had. Interesting use of the plastic bottles.

    You must have seen every shade of purple and lavender ... lots of varieties of orchids.

    Thanks for sharing your trip.

  5. Debbie, I love the new look to the blog as well and the subtitle of "Leaf, Loaf & Love of Cooking", I had not noticed that before.

    The flower show must have just been breathtaking. The orchids are just spectactular and I've been tempted to buy a plant as they are everywhere this time of year. This post might have finally pushed me into it :-) All of them are gorgeous but I'm partial to the white ones...they just look so delicate. What a fun way to recycle using the water bottles as vases. Can't wait to see more!

  8. Wow really impressive. I bet it was awesome in person. There is a big orchid display at the Seattle show but nothing as exotic as this. I have to say I love all of the COLOR I am seeing in your pics. I think over all Seattle is a more sedate place lol. I noticed it when I moved up here from the south. People dress darker..more neutral, more natural maybe and it comes across in decorating and gardens as well. This little southern girl likes color. :-)
