Bellissimo! The New Summer Garden Display Is Coming Up Roses At The Palazzo
The alluring models - which stand nine feet tall - were first introduced last summer, and immediately became Instagram sensations. Due to this popularity, they were revised for an encore with new rose designs inspired by The Venetian Rose and The Palazzo Rose, both official namesake varieties of the Las Vegas resorts.
The dresses and hats that are featured were influenced by European wedding gowns and millinery. The 568 unique oversized roses featured in the dresses took six artists three months to create, using recycled paper products. Each of the 14,768 petals that make up the roses were hand-cut, painted, and sealed. The roses were sculpted and paired with others to create the elegance of a flowing gown. It took a team of five designers 40 hours to arrange the flowers into dresses.
More than 5,000 orchids, dusty miller, ligustrum, red and orange chrysanthemums, as well as boxwood and olive trees are featured throughout the display.
The Palazzo Rose was introduced in December 2012. Bred and grown in The Netherlands, the Palazzo Rose features deep crimson red petals. In 2015, the resorts unveiled The Venetian Rose, with its coco peach undertones and champagne hues. Both roses can be purchased through the floral department as a special enhancement to a guest's stay or brides can incorporate the roses in their Venetian weddings.
