The Galleria’s Floral Experience is back this spring, from March 27–April 10, after a two-year hiatus. This floral installation extends the length of the mall and features flowers by Bachman’s.
This year’s theme is “Sugar Coated” and will include oversized candy sculptures amid the floral installations—from a 5-foot-tall gummy bear situated in a floral forest to a 13-foot-high Ring Pop.
The Floral Experience was put on pause the past two years, with the 2020 event getting cancelled mere weeks before opening. To make sure the flowers grown for this event didn’t go to waste—and to spread some cheer during a difficult time—the Galleria and Bachman’s teams delivered them to hospital workers and local senior citizen centers that were in lockdown.
“After a two-year absence due to the pandemic, we are delighted for the Floral Experience to return,” says Wendy Eisenberg, Galleria’s general manager.
Guests can take in the Floral Experience simply by walking from one end of the Galleria to the other. Small gardens will be installed in the hallways and walkways, and in large, open areas there will be larger garden areas with specific themes.
Landscape architect Bryan Kramer is leading the floral installation design, bringing his 18-plus years of experience to the project.
Free and open to the public, Galleria guests can go on a self-guided tour of the Floral Experience any time the shopping center is open during the 15-day run.
Galleria Hours: Monday–Saturday, 10 a.m.–7 p.m.; Sunday 11 a.m.–6 p.m.
