The Landscape Show’s motif for 2012 was “Where You Are the Star”, and we took the theme very literally. If the customers are the stars, we reasoned, then why not give them the Hollywood star treatment? We set up our display with giant Oscars, lights, a red carpet with velvet ropes, gold drapes and, of course, a horde of Paparazzi to photograph our arriving guests. We were the paparazzi with cameras slung around our necks, but we were nice paparazzi from the golden age of Hollywood, not the pushy obnoxious version of today. In the back of our booth was a huge sign reading “Grandiflorawood”, similar to the famous one you see up in the Hollywood Hills near the observatory. Of course, we stocked the booth with the most exotic and colorful plants that we had in the nursery, big leafy plants like elephant ears, bananas, gingers and ornamental grasses. Apparently the judges liked our booth, and we were pleasantly surprised when FNGLA President Wes Parrish came by later in the day to present us with the award for Best of Show Themed-Booth.
