It's the season for flower shows across the country and yesterday, I stopped by the New York Flower Show for a preview of the extravagant centerpieces created for the annual dinner dance, which benefits The Hort (The Horticultural Society of New York). The Hort's Flower Show began in 1916 and by the end of the 1990s, it was no longer a full-scale flower show and now continues as part of the annual dinner dance.
This year's theme was "Couture en Fleur" and fashion-inspired centerpieces were created by 30 of New York's florists. The floral designers cited sources as diverse as Cirque de Soleil, Alexander McQueen, and 1920s Paris to create their tables.
