One of the highlights of spring is attending the David Jones Spring Flower Show with my Mum. The Elizabeth Street Store is filled to the brim with a profusion of floral delights and each window is a new and creative vision to admire.
The theme for the David Jones Flower Show this year was Luminscent. Attending the opening night was the perfect opportunity to appreciate some of the particular night features of this years display. There were secret windows and inside a secret tunnel lit with glowing blue bell like flowers - surreal and dreamy like neon jellyfish in the deep sea.
Luminscent made for an interesting theme and I liked the play on words between the illumination of the flowers and the scent of flowers and perfumes that the windows celebrated.
The windows are always wonderful to look at, but I always think there is something special about the flowers that fill and dominate the ground floor inside. The shopping space is transformed by this mass array of colour and you can get up close to the blooms and really admire the different flowers and leaves used in the arrangements.
Seeing all the cherry blossom branches made me sigh as it reminded me of all the amazing cherry blossoms we saw on our last trip to Japan. I also loved the contrasting colours with the ceilings of the store, particularly the gold.
Overall its hard not to go crazy taking lots of photos of all the different flowers and arrangements - such an amazing variety of flowers to inspire!
