Gardening Las Vegas Style

IMG_2407

Hello friends! A couple weeks ago my husband and I headed to Las Vegas for the weekend to celebrate my 30th Birthday! We had a really great time. We stayed off the strip this time and rented a hotel room at the Eastside Cannery. It was awesome. Our hotel room was the nicest I have ever stayed in. It was huge and there was a giant bathroom and tub. If you are heading to Vegas and want to save a bit of money by staying off the strip you should definitely try the Eastside Cannery- I highly recommend them. We were in Vegas during the big fight weekend.  It was pretty busy around town for the fight at MGM and we got to meet Mike Tyson who was doing autograph signings at Cesars Palace. It was very cool.

We also took in the the Cirque du Soliel show “O” at the Bellagio. It was amazing. We decided to check out the Conservatory at the Bellagio before the show started. I was blown away by the amazing floral displays.  The whole conservatory was decorated in an amazing Japanese Tea Garden theme. Check out some of  the photos:

I wish I could have taken better photos but all I had with me was my Iphone. I could seriously live in this garden. How can I transport it over to my place in Washington?

Over at the Wynn Hotel there was also some really cool floral displays:

The displays were so amazing. Obviously not practical for “the real world” but absolutely perfect for Vegas. I do think the hanging floral balls would work well for an outdoor wedding or party. I will have to figure out how to make those one day!
