Orticola Milan Flower Market

Orticola: Milan Flower’s Market!

Spring is definitely in the air here with us in Milan this weekend since this weekend is taking place Orticola, Milan’s big flower market! With hundreds of stalls of flowers and plants and free labs teaching people how to make beautiful flowers composition, how to decorate a summer table with flowers, how to grow vegetables on your balcony (and then how to cook them ;) or how to make a flower bridal bouquet (this one presented by Vogue Sposa.. not less!), Orticola is the place where to go this weekend!
