The Garden Club of New Jersey (GCNJ) proudly presents “Kaleidoscope,” a Standard Flower Show, February 23-26, 2017, at the New Jersey Flower & Garden Show.
Inspired by the overall show theme, “Color the World,” this “Show within a Show” will showcase hundreds of colorful exhibits, judged by national standards, displaying New Jersey’s best in floral design, artistic crafts, horticulture and much more!
Behold breathtaking flower arrangements from floor size to miniature designs, themed gardens and topiaries. Photo enthusiasts will enjoy our large photography competition, while jewelry lovers will be entranced by stunning, one-of-a-kind botanical jewelry.
Hundreds of plants will be on display, with entries from GCNJ members as well as your neighbors and fellow New Jerseyans.
And don’t miss our fun activities over at the “Bouquet of the Day” stage area, including our popular “Container Challenge” and “Dueling Designers.”
Plus the kids won’t want to miss Sunday’s “Great Zucchini Race” – a guaranteed favorite for them and parents alike (for more on children’s events, see our Junior Flower Show).
In addition, docents will be on hand to promote our garden clubs and provide horticultural advice.
