On Thursday, December 1, 2016, Her Majesty Queen Silvia of Sweden officially opened the floral exhibition, Baroque Blomsterjul, Drottningholms Slott in Stockholm.
Curated by the Swedish court florist, Mr. Claes Carlsson, the exhibition displays:
“…a fragrant and colorful experience in the spirit of Christmas. The atmospheric arrangement combines decorative elements from Drottningholm Palace Theatre with dramatic lighting, capturing the spirit of the Baroque.
The display can be seen in the magnificent staircase and the adjoining guard’s halls. The staircase is among the grandest of Nicodemus Tessin the Elder’s architectural creations, featuring ornamentation typical of the Baroque period.”
