To abide to this year’s theme, titled ‘The Enchanted Forest’, over 300 branches of blossom, 5 specides of orchids, hundreds of roses, 168 kilograms of fresh moss, 800 branches of willow and magnolia, as well as countless of flowers and native Queensland greens will be expertly fused together to create a spring wonderland.

Brisbane Arcade Marketing Manager, Andra Bite, has stated that the annual show attracts both local and national visitors to witness the captivating installations.

“Months and months of preparation and logistical management and planning goes into each Spring Flower Show and this year’s theme, ‘The Enchanted Forest’ has taken inspiration from some of the best international floral art shows and installations,” she said.

And what better way to kick off the event with a fashion show. The Brisbane Arcade Spring Collection is a glamourous, first of its kind fashion runway to launch the week of tantalising blooms.
