Nikki recently spent the morning with reader’s of House & Garden for talk on all things landscaping and flowers. A select few garden enthusiasts joined Nikki and Carole Annette, House & Gardens Retail and Promotions Editor, for an inspirational brunch at Bicester Village. At home in the intimate setting, Nikki revealed how she forged her career as a luxury florist and more specifically, how her relationship with Value Retail has taken her down a very different path of landscaping.The ongoing two year project with Bicester Village has seen Nikki successfully transform the mall into an abundant ‘English Country Garden’, with each of the 180 still life vignettes changing throughout the seasons to mirror the surrounding Oxfordshire Countryside.
Nikki explained how she ‘dreamt of Bicester Village being an old manor house and the mall being a wild, overgrown garden – immersing shoppers’. Challenging industry experts, Nikki and the Wild at Heart team scoured individual, original antiques from around the world to create various focal points within the mall. As well obtaining plants, herbs and trees from nurseries around Europe to create unimaginable yet stunning combinations. With incredible attention to detail the evolving transformation of Bicester Village has surpassed all original concept’s gaining recognition from notified industry experts and publications. Having given the Village it’s own identity, Nikki now plans expand her creative talents to various different retail destinations across Europe – with her next project taking her and the team to Kildare Village, Ireland this week…
To mark the beginning of March we have given the Nikki Tibbles Wild at Heart Tree at Bicester Village a spring makeover. In celebration of the turn of the season we have created a silk tree using a combination of two blossoms that herald spring like no other, Magnolia and Japanese Cherry Blossom.
We would love you to share your pictures of our latest Wild at Heart Bicester Tree with us, using the #nikkitibbleswildatheart.
The Instagram famous Nikki Tibbles Wild at Heart tree at Bicester Village has been given a brand new make over for 2017. We have replaced the beautiful festive decorations for a fresh and clean magnolia tree to welcome in the new year. It’s definitely worth stopping by to see if you are visiting the Village this January.
It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas at Wild at Heart HQ…! Over the past few weeks we have been hard at work creating the new Bicester Village festive install. The scent of fresh pine and dried lavender have been enveloping the workshop as our creative events team made a series of over sized wreaths, transformed the Nikki Tibbles Wild at Heart feature tree and even created a bespoke sleigh to complete the festive look.

You may remember that a few months ago we installed a beautiful blossom tree in Bicester Village designer shopping outlet. A big hit with shoppers who posed and snapped away beneath it, last week we gave the tree a fresh new look.
As spring makes its way for summer we have traded pretty pink blossom for hundreds of red silk roses, so be sure to stop by and take a look.
London’s streets and parks have suddenly erupted with a haze of pink and white petals – the beauty of spring is upon us. Breath-taking in its beauty but bittersweet in its brevity, the cherry blossom is an annual treat for the senses.
Japans national flower, Sakura, as it’s known in Japanese, is a symbol of renewal and hope. Heralding the arrival of spring, the beautiful blossoms are in abundance from last March till the beginning of May.
Providing a beautiful source of inspiration, for not only us at Wild at Heart, but our wonderful clients, the cherry blossom has featured at many weddings and events during spring. Here a just a few of the creations our Creative Director and his team have been working on:
From a beautiful Kensington Palace wedding, to vibrant Bicester Village blossoms – we’ve definitely done the treasured cherry trees proud with these beautiful works of art.
Last week we installed a beautiful blossom tree in Bicester Village designer shopping outlet. The inspiration for our creation was to mark the start of spring and the up-coming wedding season, so 250 stems of cherry pink blossom were crafted into a stunning tree packed full of cheerful fuchsia tones.
Bicester Village have told us that the tree is a huge hit with their customers, with lots of shoppers stopping to have their picture taken in front of it. We’re not surprised, its vibrant hues look perfect against a blue sky, and instantly speak of spring.
Nikki will be hosting a Flower Masterclass at Bicester Village on Thursday 10th March. The workshop will include tips on creating the perfect wedding bouquet as well as ideas for table settings and arrangements. Discover more.
