British Fashion Council & BPI held a party in conjunction with London Fashion Week at Spencer House on February 23rd.
We designed a mass of beautiful cream, apricot and soft pink roses and spray roses, mixed with white lilac, fresh spring cow parsley and zesty green guleder rose, in a silver stemmed bowl.
A stunning large arrangement made up of blues and lilacs, blue Hydrangea, Lilac Lilac, beautiful blue and lilac tone roses, with silver grey eucalyptus, rich green leaves and fresh green guelder rose.
As well as small gold urns filled with knots of dark red and black tulips and rich red roses.
Thank you to the Caroline Castigliano and Brides Magazine for hosting an event at The Dorchester last week. As we dined over champagne, cucumber sandwiches and scrumptious cakes, we met some wonderful brides-to-be and talked all things wedding flowers. Top wedding planner, Bruce Russell, was also on hand to provide specialist advice on all-you-need-to-know wedding planning.
The Room was a vision of romance as our flowers looked wonderfully classic among the crystals and candles. Beautiful arrangements were filled with Secret Garden and O’Hara roses, white and pink Lilac and Hydrangea, which looked and smelt gorgeous!
It’s always a pleasure to be involved with London Fashion Week - a week surrounded by elegance, sophistication and beauty.
On Saturday we displayed creations including tulips, anenemoes, hyacinths, pussy willow, dried lavender and magnolia branches at the UGG Lounge at the ME Hotel matched with the most breath-taking views across London.
Then on Sunday, we went to the Millinary Antiques Works for the ‘Loewe X John Allen’ dinner. Here we created centrepieces with pink ranunculus, white hyacinth, gelder rose, white parrot tulips and dill.

Today is Chinese New Year and the ‘Year of the Sheep’ begins.
Under the influence of the element Wood, those born in the year of the sheep are witty individuals who are very thoughtful and mindful to other’s wishing. They are generous, sentimental and have high morals in life. They also completely trust those people who inspire them.
Here is our fabulous Chinese New Year bouquet which is a fiery clash of bright colours including oranges, yellows and red roses.

This month we’re celebrating irises. This gorgeous flower comes in a variety of colour combinations, and once opened has beautiful petals.
The word Iris means rainbow. Iris is the flower of the Greek goddess Iris who is the messenger of Love. In the language of flowers Iris symbolizes eloquence.
The genus Iris has about 200 species and is native to the North Temperate regions of the world. The habitat of irises also varies a lot. Some irises grow in deserts, some in swamps, some in the cold far north, and many in temperate climates. Bearded Iris and Siberian Iris are two of the most common types of irises grown.

Working with Banana Split events, we were busy this Valentine’s Day weekend creating a Chuppah covered with over 1,500 white hydrangeas for a wedding ceremony in the ballroom of the Jumeirah Carlton Tower. Isn’t it stunning!
Afterwards, for the reception we displayed arrangements of hydrangea, gypsophelia and orchid in white, pale lilac and pale pinks to complement the colour scheme of the room.
