The 2013 Philadelphia Flower Show opened on Friday March 1, 2013 with a black tie gala where guests enjoyed hors d'oeuvres and a buffet dinner under the shadow of the spectacular digital Big Ben clock. This years theme is Brilliant! and celebrates everything Great Britain, from formal English gardens to country cottage gardens, fashion, and interpretation of the Crown Jewels to Jack the Ripper.
There are several theme nights during the week long show, which ends March 10, 2013. Sunday was Philadelphia Magazine's LGBT Party. Philly Mag's G Philly and PHS joined forces and hosted the LGBT party. Guests enjoyed a live performance from Philadelphia Drag Cabaret’s Martha Graham Cracker and sipped on British-themed cocktails. Other nights include Wedding Wednesday and Girls Night Out on Thursday. For more information on the flower show and special events click HERE.
