Bellagio Conservatory

We were lucky enough to stay at the Bellagio Hotel when we went to the Computer Electronic Show this month (January 7-9th). The Bellagio hotel has a conservatory that is changed four times a year, and houses some of the most unique festive interpretations of the season. We were able to see the Christmas display in the process of being taken down and the Chinese New Year display put up. Huge display pieces adorn this conservatory. When we go to Las Vegas, I always make a point to stop by the Bellagio Conservatory to see their display.

These lanterns were in the hallway as you travel to the "mall shops." They were just beautiful!

You can kind of get an idea how much work goes into taking down and putting up the displays. I was in the registration area at 6:00am and they already had a full staff moving items out and fork lifting items in. Plus there is a big drop underneath the display which must be an additional five feet. Huge cranes move the items around and place each piece. It was fun to watch.
