Every year, for the past 6 years, on Mother’s Day weekend I participate in the Flower Show at Filoli. On top of being inside that spectacular mansion, I get to display my floral designs along side the ever beautiful Annieglass. Filoli is a dream place, and I am absolutely recommending for those of you who’ve never seen it, you MUST! It is an historic site of the National Trust for Historic Preservation and one of the finest remaining country estates of the early 20th century. The mansion is stunning inside and out, and the gardens, oh my, they are known to be one the finest examples of a formal garden in this country. It is stunning!
The flower show is themed every year, and when I found out last year the theme was International Voyages, I immediately jumped on the Turkey/Bohemian theme. Annie was on board with that and had some gorgeous pieces she wanted to display too. This was a slam dunk for me, since my hubby is Turkish, I have accumulated some mighty fine pieces of copper, relics, & trinkets through the years. Annie has an amazing selection of fabrics of all textures and colors too. Our table turned out stunning! It had a true Turkish Bazzar feel to it, and Annie’s Aquamarine pieces mimicked the blue waters of the Bosphorus. It was really gorgeous.
