Festival of Flowers 2014 at Springfield Museums
Springfield Museum, Edwards Street

The festival is a creative mixture of flowers and dozens of objects from the museum’s art, history and science collections interpreted by florists, designers, and garden club members. This year’s event features even more floral arrangements. The festival begins with a Culture & Cocktails event on April 3 from 5 to 8 p.m. Guests can view the arrangements; see a floral fashion show; and watch a Floral De¬sign Challenge using only surprise materials. Also: music, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. Cost for the opening party is $20.
Other special events during the festival include a presentation titled “Nonstop Plants: A Garden for 365 Days with Margaret Roach” on April 5 at 1 p.m. Tours by museum docents highlighting many of the floral interpretations will also be available on April 4-6 (11 a.m. and noon; free with museum admission).
