Bellagio’s Conservatory & Botanical Gardens Celebrates Lunar New Year with Vibrant Floral Display

Exhibit features model of highly anticipated
Bellagio by MGM Shanghai resort

LAS VEGAS (January 12, 2017) – Bellagio’s Conservatory & Botanical Gardens’ Lunar New Year display honoring the Year of the Rooster was unveiled this week, and will continue to bring good fortune and prosperity to visitors through March 4. Created by renowned event designer Ed Libby, in collaboration with the Bellagio Horticulture team and Feng Shui Master George Yau, the gardens are brought to life with over 20,000 flowers, silk-lantern chandeliers and a stunning preview of the highly anticipated Bellagio by MGM Shanghai resort.

Upon entering the Conservatory, visitors walk through a 16-foot Moon Gate, serving as an inviting entrance into the gardens. Four ding pots burn incense to protect against bad fortune and four 17-foot standing red roses made from lentils line the corners of the East Bed from a shallow pond. Light from a 19-foot crystal chandelier adds a warm glow, complementing golden hues found throughout the East Bed.

Celebrating Bellagio’s expansion into China, the North Bed showcases an 8-foot-tall model replica of Bellagio by MGM Shanghai, a luxury resort set to bring an entirely new, unforgettable and stunning experience to the renowned international metropolis of Shanghai beginning in summer 2017. The resort is a partnership with the Suning Group, a premier Chinese real estate developer and retailer, and will be managed by Diaoyutai MGM Hospitality, a joint venture of MGM Resorts and Diaoyutai State Guesthouse.

Located on Suzhou Creek, adjacent to the historical Waibaidu Bridge, Bellagio by MGM Shanghai will feature 165 guest rooms and 25 suites, the first restaurant abroad by acclaimed Chef Julian Serrano and panoramic views of the Lujiazui skyline.

The Conservatory & Botanical Gardens is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week and is complimentary to the public.
