Returning to the Show again this year, Kids Under Cover brings its much loved Cubby House Challenge to MIFGS to help raise funds for young people experiencing homelessness.
The village will feature six cubby houses designed by some of Australia’s most prominent architects and designers, including Burbank, Stonehaven Homes and the team from Channel Seven's Better Homes & Gardens.

Feathers Boutique to exhibit at MIFGS for the first time
Exhibiting at MIFGS for the first time, Feathers Boutique is creating a lush indoor exhibit of fashionable flora. The display celebrates the 40th birthday of the brand and will feature white flowers intermingled with crisp white handmade paper feathers designed by Create & Communicate 2C.
Feathers will also work in conjunction with RMIT students whose infamous installations will be themed around the concept of 'celebration'.
Feathers will hold an exclusive birthday cocktail party during MIFGS to thank all its loyal customers and supporters for their ongoing support of the brand.
Show-goers invited to create their own floral bouquet
My Flowerhouse will invite show-goers to create their own floral bouquet at this year’s MIFGS. My Flowerhouse, led by Natasha Hastings, will be running ‘explore the senses’ Floral Design Workshops to encourage visitors to create their own floral masterpieces.
With four sessions running daily, the renowned florist and her team of experts will guide floral enthusiasts through creating a spiral stem bouquet, which they can take home as a MIFGS memento, along with a free goodie bag.
A Myer window in Bourke Street Mall will also be decked out with flowers by Natasha in the lead up to the Show which is sure to be a crowd pleaser – stay tuned for the final design!
