Superbowl and Flowers???

The Superbowl is only a week and a half away. Guess what, the Hidden Garden is a part of it? Go figure - football and flowers???

Our company was hired to provide all of the floral decor for the Superbowl NFL Tailgate Party. If you've never heard of it, Tailgate, is the "it" party on Superbowl Sunday. You can't buy a ticket - you have to be invited. We are responsible for the floral decor in 5 of the tents that will be at the NFL Tailgate extravaganza.

What type of flowers would you design for a football party? I'm sure you are wondering. Since the party is in Arizona the decor should remain consistent with florals that would be growing in that region of the world. We will be incorporating fresh florals such as succulents, kangaroo paw, acacia knifeblade, flax leaves, etc. We are also staying very environmentally friendly by using plants in a lot of the decor space. Some of the plants include cactus gardens, paddle succulents, agave plants, etc.

The design for the job has been so interesting and a wonderful challenge. Since the outdoor plants that are grown in Arizona are very sparce and not "that florally" (i.e. - roses, hydrangea, tulips - like we usually design with at The Hidden Garden) we have really had to change the way we design for this event. It's just a different type of floral!
