City Living Entry Guidelines 

Garden Spaces for a Condo Patio
Northwest Flower & Garden Festival February 20 – 24, 2019


  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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).

  8. 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.

  9. The Show provides at least two professionally photographed images of your display.

  10. There will be three first place categories awarded: People’s Choice, Best Plant Material, and Best Overall Design/Concept.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. The Northwest Flower & Garden Show is not responsible for loss or damage of any materials used in your display.
