"All of us in the design and development area of our resorts are always trying to think of new things for the hotel.  We love to have this place constantly changing; it makes it much more interesting for all of our guests who come frequently," said Steve Wynn, Chairman and CEO of Wynn Resorts.  "We explore natural things like water, sunshine and beautiful flowers. Preston Bailey is someone who brings life to our ideas and creates new and beautiful things.  He is gifted, artistic and one of the most renowned and highly respected designers of floral displays."

The installations were crafted by Wynn Design and Development and Forte Specialty Contractors. Constructed with a core made of fiber-reinforced plastic, the sculptures are adorned with more than 110,000 flowers, artistically arranged in a vibrant color palette. The hot air balloon stands 20 feet tall and weighs 4,000 pounds, while the carousel is 13 feet tall, 16 feet wide and weighs 6,000 pounds. Both installations feature theatrical lighting and are accompanied by festive music. In total, more than 3,500 hours went into completing the installations.

When developing the concept of the floral sculptures, Bailey looked to childhood inspirations to play upon the existing whimsical theme of the Wynn atrium. Having always been fascinated by the magic of a carousel and the imposing imagery of a hot air balloon, Bailey translated that captivation into floral interpretations that could live forever in the memories of guests visiting Wynn Las Vegas.
