Chet Notes Seasonal The Greenhouse

Palm Sunday 2015 Recap

April 12, 2015

On Sunday March 29th we held our annual Palm Sunday Open House, and it was one of our biggest ever!

If you haven’t attended or aren’t familiar with our open house, it is a yearly family event held right in our showroom and greenhouses on York Street in Utica. Each year our designers put together a showcase of their best fresh flower work in our Showroom, and our greenhouse is filled with gorgeous blooming plants. In addition, Chetty the Rabbit is in our greenhouse to sit with your children and take photos, and our duck pond is on display in the showroom with baby ducklings (not for sale!).

Here’s a recap and some photos of the big day!

Our Greenhouse was looking it’s best:

Cathy put together some bright colored fresh arrangements, all bird related. She even had motion activated tweeting birds in some of her arrangements (in case you were confused by the tweeting!).
