We are delighted to be providing the flowers for Masterpiece again this year which is being held in the south grounds of The Royal Hospital, Chelsea. Last year we had a wild yet elegant country garden theme introducing strong vivid colour.
The show brings the very best collectors and exhibitors of the fine art and antiques world together. It runs from 26th June until 3rd July and we are now installing our chic woodland inspired arrangements. It’s a fantastic show and definitely worth visiting!

We were delighted to work with Battersea Dogs Home this month on their annual summer fundraiser. This year’s theme, was an outdoor summer picnic. Guest sipped cocktails from Jam Jars, surrounded by English country flowers. The arrangements were made up of guelder rose, white peonies, white avalanche roses, herbs, white stock, cow parsley, viburnum, delphinium and white hydrangea.
I fell in love with this gorgeous dog at the fundraiser. Maverick was taken in by Battersea Dogs Home last year, but he has since left, having been re homed. Maverick now lives in a country home in Essex with other dogs and horses. He certainly was the star of the evening.
Well done to Battersea for organising yet another successful summer fundraiser, we were thrilled to provide the flowers.

This week, I headed to the Tate Britain to admire the new exhibition from Patrick Caulfield. Caulfield was known during the sixties for his iconic and vibrant paintings of modern life. His work was contemporary in feel, despite his traditional style of painting. Born in West London, Patrick studied at the Chelsea school of Art, where he found his talent. Later in life, Caulfield exhibited in The Hayward Gallery and the Tate.
I love his paintings, they are all so vibrant and divine! I especially love the vivid image of painted vases (pictured below). The exhibition runs until early September at the Tate Britain, and is not to be missed…
