The NSPCC Art Gala Dinner at Masterpiece 2015 saw our talented events team creating a neo-romantic enchanted forest for over almost 400 guests who attended the fundraising event. When setting up the event, tables were dressed with black linen and metallic accents from the cutlery were enhanced with the rich red and deep pink dahlias that made up the centrepieces.

Tall arrangements of dark green camellia and magnolia, blended with green and gold asparagus fern formed a lush green canopy over the dining tables whilst hanging tea lights and crystal storm lanterns set an intimate tone for the evening before guests began to arrive.

Keep an eye out for more images of the event coming soon, but in the meantime see the full article of the event by House & Garden here

Below are just a few photos that were taken during the set up of the event:

Whether your venue is in need of a little pick-me-up or you just fancy a fresh new look, our weekly homes and contract flowers are a great way to keep your space looking attractive and inviting. We followed our contracts team on their morning run to see how they use beautiful flowers to transform just a few of our customers venues around London and picked up some great tips along the way…

Create a stunning centrepiece by using simple yet effective arrangements that work with the surrounding colour scheme. For this display at the Wallace Collection, we used different heights to add interest and variation to the arrangement whilst complimenting the contemporary and natural style of the venue. Create this natural look in your home with our Florists Favourite Bouquet.

Using bold, statement hues against a more muted background can really draw attention to an arrangement whilst maintaining a harmonising balance of colours. Our vibrant and luxurious arrangement at One Marylebone creates eye-catching display, making a striking feature of this simple alcove.

Flowers are perfect for highlighting a given style or theme. This wild arrangement of white flowers adds to the intimate and elegant setting of the Santini Restaurant in Belgravia, accentuating the Italian style décor and venetian colour palette.

Here at Wild at Heart we are really proud of our mood boards! It’s a great tool for us to engage with clients and help them visualise a style for their event so that we can then create some truly special flowers for them. Of course, it’s also a good way for us to communicate our vision to suppliers and event partners so that we can all work together to deliver an event that is harmonious and consistent in theme.

Below are some examples of our mood boards; as well as using images of flowers, we also love to use people, places and textures to bring more of an emotional connection with the theme. When it comes to looking for images we will often look online, but we also love to get inspiration elsewhere, for example in nature, visiting galleries and exhibitions, through fashion and magazines.

With so many weddings taking place each month here at Wild at Heart, our florists are always advising brides-to-be on how to create the perfect flowers for their big day. The tables were turned last month as our very own head florist and manager of our Pimlico store, Ruth, tied the knot at a beautiful English country garden wedding in Cornwall.

What happens when you’re a florist getting married…

There are enough decisions to be made when you’re getting married, but when you’re a florist getting married, does it make choosing your wedding flowers any easier? We asked Ruth how she went about selecting her bridal blooms:

‘I chose a June wedding so I could pick from the beautiful scented flowers available at this time of the year, but that was the only easy decision! Having seen so many beautiful arrangements before, I had a lot of trouble deciding what I wanted.’

But with all these decisions to be made, Ruth still had time to make her own bouquet and buttonholes!

Cornish Seaside meets English Country Garden

Nestled away in the charming Tregulland House in Cornwall is where Ruth and Ollie decided to exchange their vows. Inspired by the Cornish seaside, with the blue and grey tones of the coastline incorporated into Ollie’s suit, along with stunning floral decorations giving the day a distinct countryside garden feel.

Ruth’s bridal bouquet was kept pretty and feminine with white and lilac sweet peas, Sarah Bernhardt peonies and lilac scabiosa to compliment her soft, floaty wedding gown.

For the reception, mixed arrangements of flowers in pastel tones including Sarah Bernhardt peonies, lilac scabiosa, blue delphinium, pink and lilac sweet peas, nigella, blue and lilac hydrangea and O’hara, norma jean and quicksand roses were combined with coral and white peonies, flowering mint, lavender and cotoneaster to create a spectacular statement arch at the marquee entrance. Various combinations of these gorgeous summer garden flowers also filled white urns that ran along the centre of the tables with tea lights scattered throughout for a magical touch before the speeches and celebrations began.

What a wonderful day! Wishing Ruth & Ollie all the best for their future together from the Wild at Heart Team x
