Virtual Flower Show 2021
In place of a live flower show at Lyndhurst this year, we’re offering this virtual reminiscence of past flower shows until we return next year!
The annual Flower Show opens Lyndhurst’s spring season with an explosion of color and surprising floral installations. Over a dozen of Westchester’s finest floral artists design arrangements within the rooms of the historic mansion. The result is the creation of show-stopping scenes and a celebration of spring in every room.
During the Flower Show, the Lyndhurst Carriage House is home to Antiques on the Hudson; a boutique-style antiques show featuring carefully curated dealers showcasing classic garden, fine art, jewelry, and mid-century antiques. Additional activities include a seasonal plant sale with special potted creations and garden gifts, an elegant High Tea hosted by Saint George Bistro of Hastings, and a Friday Preview Party to benefit Lyndhurst’s gardens.
The Flower Show offers visitors a rare opportunity to experience Lyndhurst’s mansion decorated by florists and contemporary floral artists inspired by the natural world. Filled with sumptuous flower arrangements and full-room installations, this show offers an experience unique among flower shows for visitors who will walk through the house at their own pace without a guided tour. To assemble a wonderland of color and fragrance, each floral designer handcrafts a display to highlight and harmonize with the rich interiors of the mansion.
Reflecting on the Flower Show, Executive Director Howard Zar notes, “We had the idea for the flower show because it harkens back to the estate’s heyday when the historic mansion was always decorated with fresh flowers from the estate gardens and greenhouse. In its fourth year, the show has grown to a place where it can also reflect on Lyndhurst’s unique identity as a place where its art and architecture were once considered new and contemporary. With the addition of full-room floral installations and a floral print exhibition, visitors’ senses will be excited by the new floral interpretations alongside the traditional floral experience they continue to enjoy.”
