North Central Chapter AIFD-accredited designers have come together to present a unique and diverse garden space dedicated to the art of floral design. Enjoy different floral concepts and decorating accents each built to express individual style and inspire creativity.
The mission of AIFD is to advance the art of professional floral design through education, service and leadership, and to recognize the achievement of excellence in this art form.
There are no limits to the creativity on display in these high-style settings for dining and drama. See where imagination can take some of Chicago’s top florists, designers, retailers and clubs.
The Horticulture Photography Competition is a special event we look forward to each year, as it celebrates the creativity and beauty of plants, flowers and green living. The Chicago Flower & Garden Show strives to showcase a comprehensive representation of beauty, art and creativity through horticulture —and we are excited to incorporate the photography of our visitors in that effort. See the spectacular results and decide if your opinions of their artistry match those of our judges.
