Plaudits for Schaffer Exhibit at Flower Show


Fusion Flowers, the renowned Scotland-based magazine devoted to “innovation in contemporary floral design,” focused its video camera on the  “Polar Fantasy” created by Schaffer Designs at the 2010 Philadelphia International Flower Show.

Bill Schaffer’s white-white-white exhibit envisioned a 40-degree-below world where orchids, carnations and other flowers do bloom, encased in cubes of ice, stuck in giant stalagtites, or frozen on the stem. The exhibit received the PHS Award of Distinction, the Emile H. Geschick Memorial Award for a distinctive orchid display, and wide applause  from garden writers and Show visitors.
