There are only four more days to experience the Bellagio’s Conservatory & Botanical Gardens’ Winter Wonderland display. The majestic holiday display take visitors into the glamorous imaginary world of Her Majesty Queen Bellissima. The gorgeous exhibit features everything from a 42-foot-tall live White Fir adorned with thousands of twinkling lights to 28,000 various types of Poinsettias.
Queen Bellissima’s exhibit includes four garden bed displays, each representing a holiday tradition or magical moment in the Queen’s winter wonderland. This year’s theme, “Making Holiday Memories,” was designed by Ed Libby and the Bellagio Horticulture team.
“Our horticulture team worked tirelessly for seven days straight to bring this holiday display to life,” said Libby in a statement. “Each elf within the Conservatory represents the designers, decorators, engineers, electricians, florists and gardeners who helped produce the spirit of the season for everyone to enjoy.”
Let’s take a walk through the display beginning in the West Garden where the 42-foot-tall fresh-cut White Fir stands. The tree is blanketed in 7,000 sparkling white lights and 2,500 ornaments. A five-car toy train with a live camera, chugs along around the base of the tree. The ice queen dressed in a couture-inspired gown made of preserved red and white roses, silver palmetto leaves, fresh hydrangeas and Phalaenopsis orchids welcomes visitors.
In the East Garden, Queen Bellissima’s newly renovated Gothic castle impress guests. A 28-foot-tall castle is surrounded by a moat and connected by a passageway inspired by the Gothic Bridge in New York’s Central Park. Floral elves invite guests into the garden, while four rotating soldiers stand guard.
The new South Bed takes guests into the Queen’s private quarters as she prepares for the holiday season. The scene includes a rose window, stunning fireplace and floral-embellished furnishings as well as the Queen’s puppy.
The Bellagio’s Conservatory and Botanical Gardens Winter Wonderland display is complimentary and open to the public 24 hours a day, seven days a week until January 4.
