Clarke & Cohen participated in the Philadelphia Horticultural Society (PHS) Flower Show preview event, Bloom Philly!, as a prize sponsor and judge.
PHILADELPHIA (June 2, 2021) —
The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society (PHS) announced the winners for its annual Bloom Philly! Contest, its regional competition that invites businesses in the Greater Philadelphia area to join the excitement of the upcoming PHS Philadelphia Flower Show. More than 60 businesses throughout the city and suburbs created festive, flower-filled displays and menu items inspired by the 2021 Philadelphia Flower Show theme, “Habitat: Nature’s Masterpiece.”
The Bloom Philly! contest ran April 26 through May 28 and served two purposes — to raise awareness for the Philadelphia Flower Show and to spread joy and cheer throughout the region with beautiful, floral-inspired décor and menu items that pay homage to the Flower Show’s legacy. “This year more than ever, businesses have helped spread the excitement, joy, and wonder of the Philadelphia Flower Show,” said Sam Lemheney, Chief of Shows and Events for PHS. “We are so inspired by the creativity and bold style that our businesses imagined for the contest and the enthusiasm for our new categories. Bloom Philly! has engaged businesses who want to show their love for this year’s Show. We thank them for their creativity and support of the Flower Show.”
The Flower Show
2021 offers a new venue for the Philadelphia Flower Show — for the first time in its almost 200-year history, the Show will take place outdoors. Traditionally held in March to mark the start of the Spring planting season, this year’s Show will be held Saturday, June 5 – Sunday, June 13 at FDR Park in South Philadelphia. Tickets are on sale at www.phsonline.org/flowershow.
This year Bloom Philly! expanded its contest categories with new categories and welcomed participation from food and beverage businesses to enter fun and tasty Flower Show-inspired menu items and streetery décor. Collaborations with professional florists and event designers competed in their own unique category.
