2017 Orchid Show
This year's show was in front of Macy's in the Gallatin Valley Mall, where we get lots of people walking through and enjoying the beauty of our lush display. Plants were judged by seven American Orchid Society (AOS) judges from Oregon, Utah, and Colorado. Judging teams were composed of AOS judges plus local SOS members and interested locals.
On Friday April
21, we registered 120 plants and 5 pieces of orchid art from a total of 20 exhibitors.
On Saturday April
22, we held the ribbon show.
On Sunday April 23, the winners of the
raffle were drawn.
|We were also very lucky to be able to host two vendors of orchid plants, and one vendor of orchid art.
Spinelli's Greenhouse from Amsterdam came with very interesting
orchid plants. They manage to have new choices of plants each year, and they
are deeply knowledgeable about their orchids.
Jolah Orchids from Oregon
came offering numerous gorgeous orchid plants.
Sue Spinelli was displaying and selling botanical art work in various media
at the same booth as Charlie Spinelli's.
