Float Decorating 101

We visited Expo Village to get an up close view of the float creation process.
There are 4 different float warehouses you can visit, but don't touch the flowers!
It was so beautiful and fragrant in the float warehouses.
The creation process is amazing - the work is SO DETAILED and NO paint is used - all the colors you see on every single float are created with flowers, seeds and any other kind of natural material created by God.
Here are a few pics from the Sesame Street float.
Another amazing float.
And yet another.
The other pavillion that we visited had a catwalk view of the creation process.
Seeing the floats up close makes you appreciate them even more on New Years Day.
