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.
Kick off the 2022 Floral Spotlight Series as we explore how Philadelphia impacted Pierre S. du Pont. From his visit to the 1876 Centennial Exposition when he was just six years old, to his to frequent boyhood jaunts past the Baldwin Mansion where he marveled at its glass conservatory, du Pont was undoubtedly inspired by the sights of the city. Join our designer as they create a design that calls to mind the city’s glass structures and columns, as well as other designs reminiscent of the City of Brotherly Love.
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.
