Our 2022 Floral Spotlight Series honors the past, present, and future of our Gardens … blending the history of Longwood with spectacular floral design. Each month, we begin with a brief bit about Pierre S. du Pont and his wife Alice—from gardens they visited to important moments in their lives—related to that month’s theme. Then, our featured designer creates a spectacular floral design to beautifully complement the theme.

If you’ve ever wandered the Gardens at Longwood, you’ve experienced the influence of formal French garden design … even if you haven’t realized it! This month, take a virtual step back in time as we explore Mr. and Mrs. du Pont’s trips to Versailles and Paris, and how those journeys influenced Longwood at large. Then follow along as Alisha Simone AIFD crafts a gorgeous floral design that draws inspiration from the formal French tradition.

Following the demonstration, you will receive a list of the materials used so that you may re-create the arrangements at home as well as three-month access to a video recording of the presentation.
