Superbowl Tailgate Party

We had the most amazing job opportunity when we were asked to prepare all the floral designs for the NFL's Superbowl Tailgate Party, the VIP event of this year's big game. It was unlike any job we have ever done! We are used to large events but this was much larger than any normal job! The designs had to be oversized, eyecatching from yards away, unique yet consistent so that the guests would remember which tent they were actually in! The total event was over one million square feet. You can only imagine the vast amount of space we were covering.

I took an amazing crew of our L.A. designers with us to Glendale, Arizona. We had a blast creating unique and custom designs that were eye catching for the party goers, yet representative of the region.

We really tried to work with items that would seem ideginous to the Arizona area. Florals such as cactus, succulents, hypercium berries, agave plants, accacia knifeblade and silver tree. We also incorporated florals that might not be a part of the traditional Arizona landscape but fit into the decor of their respective areas at Superbowl Tailgate. Some items included amazing Orchid displays in the Spa Domes, Red Dyed Magnolia Leaves and Burgundy cymbidiums in the Native American Tent and White Dendrobium Orchids and Silver Rocks in the Team Tent.

The game was thrilling between the New England Patriots and New York Giants, and you could feel the excitement. We were so exhausted by the time the game started and just hoped we could contribute to a memorable party experience. We are finally home after a long week of work but definitely looking forward to the opportunity to do it all again next year in Tampa!!
