Event Description

The Paine celebrates the art of floral design during Rooms of Blooms, presented March 5-8 and March 12-15. Experience the mansion bursting with the fresh aromas and kaleidoscope colors of artistic floral arrangements embellishing each room.

The most talented designers in the region create artistic arrangements complementing the Paine's upcoming exhibition, Alphonse Mucha: Master of Art Nouveau, in the Main and Salon galleries. Amazing full-room installations that tickle the senses transform the Library, Dining Room and other period rooms. Tablescapes presented by designers in the Great Hall vie for visitors to vote for them as the People's Choice Award.

The Paine's Curator of Horticulture leaves viewers speechless with a major, can't-miss installation presented in the Conservatory, where visitors may also enjoy tea time among the blooms each afternoon and weekend mornings of the floral show. Education programs in the Carriage House offer a variety of learning opportunities with experts, whether on gardening, interior design, art, cooking and more topics.
