Spring has sprung at the casino In Prince George's County: Its Conservatory has debuted the “Hope Springs Eternal” display, a tribute to D.C.'s cherry blossoms.
WASHINGTON — Since it opened, MGM National Harbor has promised to bring Las Vegas to the D.C. area. By most accounts, it’s delivered — with a Vegas-class casino, showroom, hotel and restaurants.
Add The Conservatory to that list — thanks to a direct-from-Vegas connection.
“Hope Springs Eternal, a Spring Awakening,” designer Ed Libby said, is “our tribute to the Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington.”
For Libby, a veteran New York-based wedding planner and designer, the display is his first effort to fill the MGM National Harbor Conservatory.
“There’s 100,000 flowers on display, between fresh-cut flowers and plants,” said the so-called “Florist to the Stars.” Libby has a contract to deliver the seasonal displays in both National Harbor and the legendary Conservatory at The Bellagio in Las Vegas.
