Preston Bailey recently designed two larger-than-life floral installations for Wynn Las Vegas. Inspired by some of his favorite childhood tropes, the installations include a hot-air balloon and a 13-foot-tall carousel. The floral carousel is 16 feet wide, weighs a hearty 6,000 pounds, and is played up with Vegas-appropriate theatrical lighting and festive music. The installations will remain in the property's atrium indefinitely.
