Wild at Heart recently showcased the creative talents of our events team at Kensington Palace alongside Rhubarb Catering and HRP Events. We dressed the Orangery in an elaborate array of autumnal flowers to achieve a relaxed ‘gentleman’s club feel’ within the vast space. The unique dining experience was created using detailed table centers containing the perfect mix of garden hydrangea, rose hips,  vuvuzela roses and  dahlias. Large urns and hand-made trees created focal points in the Orangery, both dressed with trailing amaranthus to complete the autumnal opulence of the evening.

The annual Masterpiece fair returned to The Royal Hospital Chelsea last week, bringing together over 150 exhibitors who showcased outstanding museum quality pieces from the realms of art, antiques and design. The show has fast become one of the most prominent global gatherings in the industry, welcoming exhibitors and collectors from around the world.

Wild at Heart returned this year as the recognised flower provider for the show creating 12 large standout pieces which were distributed throughout the venue. In keeping with the setting the arrangements were made up of classical creams and greens using blousy peonies, hydrangea, magnolia and delphinium’s to add height to the arrangement. Wispy asparagus fern was then used in the cascading arrangements to create a natural an ethereal look.

This week we had the pleasure of dressing the magnificent painted hall in the Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich, for a lavish gala dinner. The stunning setting, dubbed “the Sistine Chapel of the UK” features a staggering 5,683 sq painted ceiling, the largest figurative painting in the country.

IMG_5685 The table settings were designed to reflect the magnificence of the famed ceiling, using bespoke mirrored service’s on each of the tables. Crystal glassware and gold plates were then used to add to the opulence of the table setting. We created luxurious, high and low table centers using volumes of smooth, velvety, red naomi, deep-red grand prix and spray roses. The roses were chosen for their deep colour and their sweet scent which infused the air throughout the evening. Burgundy peonies characterised by their full heads and ruffled petals were used to add depth and texture to the table centers. The arrangements were then completed by adding a touch of asparagus fern and cherry foliage to compliment the strong red’s of the featured flowers.

Whisky brand Haig Club took over the Wellington Arch in London, transforming it into a private pop-up club with David Beckham hosting guests such as Idris Elba, Guy Ritchie, David Furnish and Tana Ramsey.

The Wellington Arch was illuminated in blue to mark the residency of the Haig Club during the week. Inside the club, designer Amanda Sheppard transformed it into a modern interpretation of the British private clubs featured in original Haig “clubman series” adverts of the 1920s. As the event florist, we created elegant and sophisticated arrangements of flowers in vibrant blues and sophisticated creams for the bar, dining room and entrance areas. Cream and blue hydrangeas, delphinium, anemones and a mix of different cream and honey-coloured roses were set in stunning brass urns.

We have just received these lovely photos from a blessing and christening that took place last year in Haddon Hall, a 12th century English Tudor country house.

For this event in one of England’s oldest and most romantic houses, we created natural and romantic arrangements that sat seamlessly alongside the garden flowers of the estate. We used a mix of bright coloured towering stems nestled alongside deep purple sweet peas and summer berries. For the sit down meal the tone changed to a more elegant and formal setting, which was reflected with roses in dusky tones of nude, apricot, cream and soft pink.

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!
