An annual event that I love to do with my friends the first weekend of every December is attend the spectacular Pasadena Look-In Holiday Home Tour. As many of you may know from around the country, Pasadena, California is home to the Rose Bowl Football Game, the famous Rose Bowl Flea Market the 1st Sunday of every month and also host to the famous Rose Parade on New Year's Day. It is an incredible mecca of some of the best real estate in California so you can see why we love to go on this tour. Unfortunately taking photos inside the homes is forbidden and I did ask permission to photograph some of the floral arrangements outside the home before I started snapping away. Keep in mind all of the florals, trees and anything plant-wise is all fresh florals. Nothing is dried, artificial or silk so that is what makes the decorations really something to behold. The best of the best floral designers participate and the result is nothing less than spectacular. Check out the columns on the photo below. I love the swag with the Magnolia leaves. Definitely made a statement. Considering on Wednesday Pasadena suffered its worst wind storm in history and there were downed trees everywhere and power was out for three days, the show clearly went on. We were thrilled.
