Well, I made a reservation for the Marriott Philadelphia Downtown for March 2011 and this year we are going to take Amtrak and go to the show "Springtime in Paris".
So who else is planning to go?

This is coming up so soon. Steve and I are taking the Amtrak from Baltimore and staying at a hotel adjacent to the show? Any takers!

When we arrived on Thursday it was a bit drizzly so we headed over the the Reading Market. What an array of delicious food choices. The breads were heavenly and Steve filled up on oysters.

Now on with the show - Theme was Paris in Springtime
Upon entry there was a giant partial structure of the Eiffel Tower surrounded by floral artwork animal displays.

This wasn't really floral, but they had these shadow displays that were odd items that formed lifelike shadows.

I have much more to post, wait till you see some of the arrangements, they reminded me of stuff Terriculture would have made.
We went last Thursday and came home Saturday afternoon. We went to the Reading Market on Thurs, the show on Friday and then to the Bourse and saw the Liberty Bell and other places on Saturday before coming home that late afternoon on the Amtrak.
Stay tuned, I'll post more tomorrow.

Candee, thank you so much for posting your show pix. I am enjoying them immensely and reminiscing over my visit a decade ago. Just as exciting today. Have you attended any seminars or made any purchases from vendors. It's all so hard to resist. They usually do sell a cd if you are interested. When I went to Reading Market I had my first crab cakes and napoleon pastry. It was also the first time I ever ate in chinatown and had dim sum. Such wonderful memories.
Look forward to seeing and hearing more about the show.

Let me tell you that Steve makes the best crab cakes on the Eastern shore LOL! Glad you finally got a chance to have one!
Here are a few of the arrangement displays. Some of the ones they had as "Paris Underground" were quite unusual.

This is a landscape display of my dreams. A beautiful patio with stone fireplace, step down to a stone pond and fountain. Above the pond area a large TV screen drops down with the touch of a finger. A huge wrap around bar area with stools and a sitting area covered with plush pillows!

These were taken from the walkway connecting the Hyatt to the Convention Center. One view is to the Reading Market and the other to the Hard Rock Cafe.
