Philladelphia Flower Show...Passports to the World...

Where can one go in March and be assured that the temperature will be a constant 60 degrees? To the International Flower Show at Philadelphia. Each year thousands of people attend this amazing event. A staff of 600 people are required to produce this incredible show.

Let's begin with a trip to an Indian wedding scene where culture, tradition and custom all come together for an unforgettable day for the the bride and groom and their families.

Lots and lots of Roses.

A life size elephant with the most amazing eyebrows.

The blanket is made from tiny flowers.

Water lilies and a flowery walk set the mood for the perfect wedding.

The feast has been prepared for the happy couple

*Earlier main wedding function use to take place on a mandap, which is normally decorated with flowers. Flowers have always been a part of Indian wedding decorations. So there is an extensive use of flowers of different kinds like roses, jasmine, and many more. Decorative tents or "shamianas" are often rented for Indian weddings celebrations. The full wedding place is decorated with elaborate carpets to line the tent. Gold and red are the colors associated with Indian wedding decoration so most of the Decor is of these two colors. The tents are lighted with Indian inspired lanterns and candles. Exotic incense stick is burn in the room to create a refreshing and pure atmosphere.
