25th Annual Flower Show

Time: 10:00 am - 3:00pm

Date: May 17, 2012

Event Details:

This year, Filoli will celebrate its 25th Anniversary of the Filoli Flower Show Fundraiser, which has become a premiere floral event in the Bay Area on Mother’s Day Weekend.  The Flower Show theme this year, Petal Tales, Once Upon a Time—Interpreting Children’s Storybooks with Flowers will remind visitors of favorite childhood stories, which magically come to life through creative flower arrangements, special plant collections, elegant table settings, garden vignettes, children’s exhibits and unique nurseries and garden landscape exhibitions, including a special succulent mural designed just for the storybook theme.

In addition to the many professional, amateur and children exhibitors highlighting their talents and creativity throughout the Historic House and Garden, there will also be nurseries, garden clubs and horticulturalists from all over California participating.  Mother’s Day Teas, Champagne Brunches, boxed lunches, flower arranging demonstrations and musical performances also mark this event.  The Garden will be at its peak bloom where visitors can discover many new surprises throughout the estate.

The Opening Night Reception will be on Thursday, May 9th from 5:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.  In keeping with the theme and 25th anniversary, the Roth children, Berenice, Lurline and Bill will be honored.  Visitors can meet with the designers themselves while viewing their imaginative exhibits and will also be able to experience the gardens at dusk while enjoying catered hors d’oeuvres, wine, champagne, beverages and live music. 


The historic Greenhouses will also be open to visitors during the show where they can view plants that have been in the Filoli collection since 1920.  In the courtyard of the Greenhouses, there will also be educational exhibitors and Garden Information Docents will be on hand to answer questions about Filoli, as well as your own garden.
