I have been impatiently waiting for Spring time for the past few weeks now. But apparently, it’s been Spring time at the Botanical Garden since February 28th. Inside the New York Botanical Garden is the annual display of my favorite flower. This display is called The Orchid Show. There are hundreds of species of the orchid flower showcased all throughout the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory. There’s only one word that describes this beautiful flower world, it’s “breathtaking.”
When I entered the Orchid Show, I didn’t know where to look. Throughout the show are hanging flower baskets, colorful column displays and the biggest flower chandelier you’ve ever seen. For a girl like me who always keeps an orchid flower pot at her desk at work. This was like orchid heaven. I didn’t even know there were so many different species of orchids and it was amazing to see them all in one place.
One of my favorite displays was the huge chandelier of white orchids. It actually gave me some wedding ideas while standing under it. It reminded me of a huge halo, and would be a gorgeous focal piece for a wedding. My most favorite part of the show was in the rainforest room. There is one room that has a waterfall statue that falls into a pool in the center of the room. All around the room are different flowers and plants. It also has benches for you to sit and absorb the experience. This room is peaceful and soothing. I sat on a bench for over a half hour and it was the most relaxing moment I’ve had in a while. I want to return just to sit in that room again.
The Orchid Show is perfect for a date, they also have select dates for this purpose called Orchid Evenings. You can listen to music, toast your cocktails and receive beauty treatments from a Guerlain make up artist during these evenings. There is a great deal on living social for $29. Take advantage of this deal. The Orchid Show event runs from February 28th to April 19th so you have two more weeks to experience this breathtaking orchid presentation.
