Have you been on social media in oh, say, the past seven days? If so, then I presume you know that the 2017 Philadelphia Flower Show is here, and it’s pretty freakin beautiful. The theme this year is Holland, and with that comes (the best flower ever) . . . the tulip. So many tulips, you guys, and they’re actually quite amazing. I wasn’t convinced I was going to make the trip to the show this year, but during our mini snow event this week, I thought it would be a good night to try. And, for the Instagram shots alone, it was worth it.
Doing fun things with your Philly girlfriends is pretty much the reason we’re all here, right? The Philadelphia Flower Show is legendary in this city (it was first held in 1829!), but in all my years around the Philadelphia area, I have yet to attend. As I get older, subsequently becoming more & more interested in adult things like the arts, culture, and what flowers are what, I knew attending this year’s event was on my list. (But really . . . watching all of the amazing/hysterical auditions for the Green Room host didn’t hurt either.)
In my research, there are two ways you can do the Flower Show – the general admission way, and the VIP “Girls Night Out” way. Girls Night Out is a special premiere ticket event taking place on (Thirsty) Thursday, March 6th. There will be shopping, massages, facials, blowouts, wine, and a photo booth. And, most importantly, plenty of Instagram-able moments.
You can buy your tickets for the Philadelphia Flower Show in advance online. I know, $50 is a hefty sum. But if you’re shelling out $32 for a general admission ticket, you might as well spring for the extra cost and secure yourself some beverages, beauty treatments, and giveaways, don’t you think?
Hope to see you all next week! xx
