Theatrical floral sculptures create elegant—and astonishing—moments of unbridled joy in Wynn Palace.
The Wynn Las Vegas has unveiled two new floral installations by event designer Preston Bailey. The new installations, a hot air balloon, and animated carousel are in the hotel's atrium.
Enter the colorful new carousel currently taking its happy turn inside Wynn Palace’s south atrium, its 10 horses, including a mythical Pegasus, unicorn, and hippocamp (a seahorse from Greek mythology), festooned with more than 83,000 flowers. In the north atrium, a Ferris wheel revolves slowly, covered with 102,000 flowers and more than 1,100 lights—each of its chairs having required a meticulous 250 hours of fabrication. Also on the way: a windmill of 75,000 roses, peonies, daisies, and lisianthus; a jack-in-the-box that springs from his floral encasement to a height of 15 feet (the largest of his kind in the world); and five balloons—one of nearly 17 feet in height—that, despite their weight of two metric tons, seem to rise effortlessly to the ceiling.
