Sneak Preview: Gardiner in Bloom exhibition

Celebrate spring in the city with the Gardiner Museum‘s Spring Awakening: Gardiner in Bloom exhibition.

Featuring a collection of large-scale floral installations by six Toronto designers, the exhibit combines the beauty of spring blooms and the museum’s permanent collections. Yesterday, I was lucky enough to be invited for a behind-the-scenes look at the exhibit. While designers hung branches, positioned flowers and placed moss I managed to snap a few pictures of these one-of-a-kind creations.

Budding branches await their bloom in this ‘Garden Meets China Cabinet’ collaboration designed by Todd Caldwell of Emblem Floral Design Studio and artist, Linda Sormin.

Bruno Duarte of Fresh Floral Creations begins his homage to Lady Spring with a canopy of budding Kwanzan Cherry branches and moss.

An abundance of roses are just part of Michael Renaud, founder of Horticultural Design‘s Jour d’ Hermes Absolu display inspired by the Hermes fragrance and an ode to femininity.

With so many beautiful and creative creations to discover, a visit to the Gardiner Museum is a must-do if you’re in Toronto this weekend. Gardiner In Bloom runs today through Sunday and also features a variety of landscaping and floral design workshops.
