~ CBG inside

Let's go inside the Chicago Botanic Antiques and Garden Fair!
Boxwood and blue hydrangea were everywhere!



This was a display by a local Events company... simple and elegant.

These photos do not do the actual setting justice. The light was too bright to get good images, (with my camera anyway) but hopefully you can get an idea. The green apples, green grass, and green hedges went on forever.


Not a single passageway or hall was left bare.



Look how they mixed floral above and below with the display of antiques.






So gorgeous!


Oh! I totally went nuts over this arrangement. Apparently, there was a demonstration we missed, but man was I happy we got to see the finished product. The color, the use of vegetables and fruit, that green lettuce! 

When was the last time you saw radishes in a floral arrangement?

Or green beans tied up with ribbon?

Love everything about it!
More on the way!

How utterly fabulous! LOVE the boxwood - I have it ALL over my garden in England. I also adore the blue hydrangea - it's always been one of my favourites. The stone urns are magnificent - I could happily do with a dozen of those in my garden - and I can see why you went gaga over the arrangement - it looks like a Caravaggio painting - breathtaking - so lush! Great blog - delighted to have found you. x

Jan,
I have always wanted to attend and exhibit at this prestigious garden antiques show. I do believe this is one of our finest venues for garden antiques. I know and admire many of the dealers there. Please take lots of photos to share with us. So looking forward!! With many thanks,

How pretty. I love table top urns and busts! No house is complete without a bust. I'm just a little jealous that you have a Wolf Kahn in your home! I'm sure it's stunning. Thanks for stopping by. Jennifer
