Gal’s guide: the Newport flower show

Last weekend, I had the chance to spend the day at the annual Newport Flower Show and let me just say that it was floral #goals. The show was set against the most beautiful background: the Rosecliff mansion on Bellevue Avenue, a white marble backdrop of absolute perfection. Even though the weather wasn’t the bestthe gray overcast skies made all of the greenery and florals absolutely pop.

This year’s “theme” was “Cottages Smart and Small” and was focused on tiny homes with sustainable gardens. There was no shortage of adorable-ness (or style). If only I could downsize my closet, I would gladly move into one of these tiny homes. HGTV much?

I couldn’t get over all of the blooms on display. I’ve never seen more full roses, colorful hydrangeas or perfect air plants in my life. I could seriously use some of this green thumb magic.

In addition to the floral displays, there were also numerous New England-based vendors on display. My favorite tent was below, with a chic yet charming French countryside vibe.

You guys know I’m obsessed with Newport and all it has to offer so I highly recommend making a day or weekend of it! More on that here.
