The first highlight was the signature “Flower Festival” which is a much-anticipated event. The festival presented Central Department Store in a new light, welcoming everyone to experience the beauty of a floral paradise, packed with mesmerizing flowers from Thailand and overseas, bringing happiness to everyone and marked the special occasion of Central Department Store’s 75th anniversary. There were three different concepts at the three locations.
Hallway and central hall on the 1st floor of Central Chidlom: The venue was lined with rattan pillars decorated with colorful colors in hot and cool tones. Papyrus plants added depth along the path, while three-store-tall panels made with braided rattan strips formed into beautiful patterns, creating a harmonious transition between the hot and cool color tones. Another highlight on this floor was rattan rabbits which symbolize fertility, representing how Central Department Store always has everything its customers seek.
2nd floor, Women’s Department: Male rabbits sitting among a flower meadow, gazing at the female rabbit on the moon, representing strong emotional connection between Central Department Store and our customers throughout the years. The entrance was also meticulously decorated with statice, symbolizing everlasting love.
3rd floor, Men’s Department: Brace yourself in the tropical freshness of a lush green forest where beautiful plants were on display, decorated with red and orange flowers for contrasting color aesthetics.
5th floor, Home Department: Many types of roses from around the world were on display in two shades: delicate light colors and bright, bold colors. The floor and ceiling were decorated with rose leaves to mimic the experience of a strolling down the blooming rose garden.
6th floor, My Little World: Meet giant bunnies that roam around the meadow, gazing at the moon on the ceiling. Children could take photos with these adorable and playful bunnies amidst vibrant flowers.
Make your way to the other side through the bridge that links Central Chidlom and Central Embassy. The bridge became a tunnel decorated with colorful fresh flowers from local flower farms to generate income for them. The flowers were fused with stalks, stems, and leaves to create wondrous hanging decorations under the concept of “Endless Floral Field”, beckoning everyone to come and take pictures.
At Central Embassy, the G floor was decorated with aluminum floral creations in line with the eco-friendly trend, under the concept of “Eternal Bloom”. Post-event aluminum materials were melted down to be used in the making of prosthetic limbs for the disabled. There were many activities to enjoy, such as Blooming Market on the 5th floor where you could find floral accessories, fashion products, and homemade goods, and “AREA 107” Exhibition on the 6th floor at Open House, showcasing university student works, along with watercolor and acrylic flower painting workshops.
Wrap up the journey with an iconic landmark, Central @ centralwOrld, which came with a concept of “Wildflowers”. The Event Arena on the 1st floor was transformed into a “Mysterious Forest”, portraying lush nature which brought happiness and joy to its visitors. The forest was decadently decorated with flowers and plants, welcoming you to its majestic beauty protected by its gods and guardians. The gateway led you to paradise and chedis where the gods resided, with floral decorations that paid tribute to the gods for eternal happiness.
In addition to decorating the stores with elaborate flower displays, to celebrate its 75th anniversary, Central Department Store also presented floral dishes, both sweet and savory, exclusively for this occasion, at Eathai on LG floor of Central Embassy, Public Market on the 2nd floor and Lofter on the 7th floor of Central Chidlom and Living House on the 7th floor of Central @ centralwOrld.
