North Carolina Museum of Art’s annual event of floral designs began Wednesday — here’s a behind the scenes look as some of the creations took shape.
🌼 What it is: Floral designers interpret works of art in the museum’s collection. Some designs are inspired by places.
🌼 How to go: General admission tickets are now sold out, but some events are still open, including lunchtime floral demonstrations, an opening party and virtual tours.
🌼 If you go: Grab a floral flight from Fullsteam, available 12-8 p.m. Saturday or Sunday. The “Tart in Bloom” floral-infused brews include Elderflower Ginger (with Norm’s Farms), Lychee Calendula and Rose Hibiscus (with Maple Spring Gardens).
🌼 Sip Art in Bloom: The Willard rooftop lounge in Downtown Raleigh created three inspired cocktails, available through Sunday.
