A Floral Superbowl

We just wrapped up the NFL Super Bowl 2009 Tailgate party!! What an amazing experience (once again). This is the second year in a row that we have been honored to be the florist for the biggest Super Bowl Party around – The NFL VIP Tailgate Party (produced by Party Planners West). We spent the entire week in Tampa prepping the flowers that adorn the tables and buffets for this event. We had the pleasure of working with a few of the local flower shops in the Tampa Bay area (Sweats Florists & Events by Amore and Jana). They were amazing assistance to us during the design and set up.

I don’t think words can describe the magnitude of the party but I’ll try! There were 3 massive tents and an enormous lagoon space that we were responsible for decorating. Within those areas, we created 500 plus centerpieces, 10 oversized buffets, an array of cocktail tables and a variety of miscellaneous areas that just needed a little dressing up.

Our flowers were flown in by Mayesh Wholesale from Costa Rica, Hawaii and Miami. A mix of various tropical leaves, ginger, helliconia (hanging and upright), green orchids, white dendrobiums and yellow James Story orchids helped dress the space.

Overall, an amazing experience for The Hidden Garden and looking forward to Miami in 2010!
