City Living Entry Guidelines
Garden Spaces for a Condo Patio
Northwest Flower & Garden Festival February 20 – 24, 2019
- Display must fit in a 6’ deep x 12’ wide display space. The space will be defined with paving slabs. There will be a 6’ x 6’ wall on each side of the patio enclosing the display area.
- All materials used in the display cannot require the use of machinery to lift into place. Keep in mind; the idea is that all materials used would be coming through the living area of an apartment or condo to be used on a deck.
- City Living displays are to represent a condo/apartment deck on an elevated floor of a high-rise apartment or condo building. The Show will provide the walls and flooring, which cannot be physically altered. Artwork and coverings are permitted.
- The displays are located against the windows on both sides of the SkyBridge. You must use the view of the actual Seattle skyline as seen through the windows; please do not provide your own backdrop.
- Plant material must be culturally compatible and in scale. Plant material must be natural; no artificial plants. The Show provides a $200.00 credit for forced material from Cascade Cuts.
- If textiles are used, they must be fire retardant. Please provide a certificate or have the fire-retardant product available during move-in at the Show.
- The Show provides signage for each display that will include contact information. You may also incorporate signage into your display in a professional manner (no hand-written signs are permitted, some chalk art may be allowed, but please clear it with show first).
- Your display should not be commercial or retail oriented. The show does permit minimal logo/branding of your company or products in your display. Please contact us with specific questions.
- The Show provides at least two professionally photographed images of your display.
- There will be three first place categories awarded: People’s Choice, Best Plant Material, and Best Overall Design/Concept.
- All materials can be sold but not visibly priced, and must remain on exhibit until 6 pm, Sunday, February 24, 2019. Potential customers can contact designers directly.
- Electricity (up to 5 amps) is included. There will be a required form to let us know what you will be using the electricity for.
- Designers are responsible for watering and grooming the plantings throughout the Show. Containers not maintained for whatever reason may be removed. Maintenance must be done before the Show opens at 9 a.m. each day or after the show closes at 8 p.m. Displays can be taken down after the Show closes on Sunday. All materials must be removed by 6:00 p.m. Monday, February 24, 2019.
- The Northwest Flower & Garden Show is not responsible for loss or damage of any materials used in your display.
