Next Tuesday 22nd of May marks the start of the world renowned HRH Chelsea Flower Show and the inevitable transformation of the streets of London. As shops, restaurants and hotels around the city prepare to adorn their fronts with fresh flower installations, we are taking a look at Nikki Tibbles Wild at Heart’s best ‘London in Bloom’ moments….
Last May Wild at Heart transformed the entrance of The Bloomsbury Hotel with an ‘Overgrown English Country Garden’ installation. The abundant arch was created with wild plants and flowers from lupins, foxgloves, rose plants, lavender and calceolaria gems to jasmine, hydrangea, cosmos and of course beautiful wisteria! In honor of last years Chelsea Flower Show we created a rather fabulous installation outside of Berkeley Square’s Sexy Fish restaurant. Sitting above the restaurant’s orange canopy with its pouting red glitter lips, fluttery eyelashes and sparkling gold scales the statement fish was quite the head turner. This incredible installation took our team over ten days to create using over 1,000 custom-coloured hydrangea, 7,000 orchid heads, 200g of red glitter for those pouty lips, 12 cans of glitter spray, 40 cans of spray paint. One of our favourite Chelsea in bloom moments has to be the complete transformation of Sloane Square’s Kate Spade New York Shop. Nikki and the Wild at Heart team created a true floral fairy tale with two large carnation flamingos, fluffy gypsophila clouds and miniature mushrooms… Winning Wild at Heart the Gold Award, Innovation Award, and the People’s Champion award.
Look out for our floral installs around London next week at The Marylebone Hotel, Soane and our very own Pimlico store!
