We returned to the historical venue of One Marylebone recently to dress the hall for a spectacular 21st birthday like no other. Alongside globally renowned Lilingston Events, Nikki and our talented creative team worked closely to curate a magical evening that will never be forgotten.

With the freedom to explore the brief of  ‘blue’, our team took inspiration from many sources to bring to life the concept of a wonderfully detailed, playful and luxurious ‘Midnight Forest’.

With a tight turnaround, our talented army of florists worked tirelessly day and night on the run up to the evening’s festivities, creating a staggering 8ft of flowered table runners and 20 stunning statement trees – with no area of the venue left untouched.

On the evening guests were welcomed into the entrance hall for a drinks reception, which was dressed in beautiful light grey Lilingston bespoke furniture and framed with a wonderful light grey sparkling fern arch.

Guests were then lead into the great hall, and into the Midnight Forest….

Two tables ran the length of the room, dressed with intricate table runners comprising of a generous mix of red dahlias, pimpernel hydrangea, clematis, lilac tulips, anenome, delicate grape hyacinth and four different types of blue delphinium. The runner took inspiration from the wilderness of a forest floor, with pimpernel hydrangea leading guests attention up to the forest canopy . The table setting was accented with details such as Wild at Heart bespoke, hand-blown glass oil lamps, filled with dyed blue paraffin, and striking agate place cards designed by Lilingston.

The statement trees were comprised with a mass of glitter and cobalt blue sprayed asparagus fern, which created the sparkling forest top.  After the lavish dinner in the Midnight Forest, guests were invited to walk along the custom blue glitter carpet and retire to the dance floor for an evening of entertainment provided by Jess Gylnne.

img_8555Thank you to Living etc. for the festive feature on Nikki in this months issue. Among other notable creatives, Nikki outlines her essential Christmas interior tips and inspiration in the article shot in her stunning London home.

One of  her favourite time of year, Nikki stands by her mantra of ‘generosity’ at Christmas and the styling of this shoot certainly followed this. Opulence was the key theme as she dressed her bold dining room for an intimate dinner among close friends.

The look which enveloped the room was created using a mass of gold asparagus fern and sweet scented garden roses to form a unique and over the top  garland, striking table center and dress her standout pine tree.  Her antique, marble, dining table was set in clashing green crockery, gold cutlery and accented with beautiful gold napkin rings, with an added final flourish of hand written festive menus.

Read all of Nikki’s festive interior style tips in this months issue of Living etc.

It’s time to say goodbye to one of our favourite garden flowers until next summer. The dahlia originating from mexico comes in a variation of beautiful forms. From the most detailed little ‘pom poms’ to creamy  Caf‎é-au-lait as large as dinner plates, New Covent Garden flower market has been brimming with the dahlia’s throughout summer and autumn.img_082013671834_1798374533725472_1421610272_n16Throughout summer our florists have been using an abundance of bright dahlias in our luxury bouquets and our creative team have been incorporating a mix of deep burgundy and plum colours into our amazing weddings and events, such as the recent showcase at Kensington Palace.

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.

We would love to see your pictures of the Wild at Heart embellished Village, so tag us on Instagram using @nikkitibbleswildatheart  or Twitter using: @wildathearthq

Wild at Heart recently had the pleasure of dressing the tables of a 21st birthday party like no other. Working alongside Snapdragon Parties, we transformed the landmark venue of One Marylebone and recreated Rothschild’s Surrealist Supper…

img_1203Marie-Hélène de Rothschild’s famous Surrealist Ball took place in a chateaux just outside of Paris in 1972 and hosted a number of celebrities including Audrey Hepburn and Salvador Dali. To set the scene, the original invitations (stating a dress code of formal wear with a surrealist headdress) were written backwards, with guests having to decipher the text in a mirror. On arrival the guests were asked to complete a maze and walk through a black ribbon forest before being greeted by a number of feline hosts. Rumored to be an Illuminati party and shrouded in mystery, the surrealist supper fast became one of the most infamous nights in history.

babyFast forward to 2016 with Wild at Heart and the creative minds of our events team, we curated a magnificently unique evening based on the nights events in 1972. The history steeped hall of One Marylebone, in all its grandeur, lent its self amazingly to the party. The hall was dressed in six primitive trestle tables adorned in an eclectic mix of vintage and custom designed props. A series of cloche’s were placed on the tables, each one housing different and beautifully bizarre scenes. Autumnal foliage and moss added texture to the tables which were then completed with doll-eating-Venus fly traps.

img_1428We were delighted to host our first Wreath Making Masterclass of the year this week, in London’s iconic Liberty of London. With the beautifully wood paneled Heritage Suite as our backdrop, guests were treated to a glass of champagne and canapes whilst Wild at Heart’s Head Florist, Ruth Warren, talked guests through how to make the perfect Autumnal Wreath using  seasonal foliage, garden hydrangea and preserved fruit. The ambient evening, heavily scented with notes of orange and lavender could be smelt down the halls of the famous department store and left the group feeling every bit in the festive spirit.

The next wreath class at Liberty of London will be held on the 15th of November, email: marketing@wildatheart.com to find out more info.

Annual Gynaecological Cancer Fund Ladies' Lunch At Fortnum & MasonAfter the success of the recent, risque shoot with Cara Delevigne and a few delicately positioned Wild at Heart flowers, the Gynecological Fund returned with a luncheon to continue their efforts in raising awareness and funding for female cancers. The afternoon fundraiser held at Fortnum and Mason was of course dressed by Nikki Tibbles Wild at Heart as we continue to vigorously support this amazing cause.

The event was attended by a host of celebrities including Tamara Beckwith and the founder of the organisation Mika Simmons, both pictured below.

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 Wild at Heart Foundation have launched their first awareness campaign – #pawsforthought. The foundation’s initiatives aim to get people  to take a moment, to pause and reflect on the stray dog problem. A global issue that is worsening, the stray dog population is something that impacts all of our lives.

One female dog and her offspring can produce up to 67,000 puppies in just 6 years, this has resulted in the stray dog population reaching alarming highs of 600 million. Over 15 million people globally are affected by rabies from the stray population. This has resulted in many countries retaliating and ordering the mass culling of dogs in their country. Over 60 countries in the world have no laws against animal cruelty – resulting in the inhumane deaths of thousands of dogs.

The foundation are asking you to:

1. Share a photo of you and your dog with the #pawsforthought sign on your hand

2. Donate by texting WAHF16£2 to 70070 or donate online.

3. And help spread the message and raise awareness of the 600 million stray dog population.

Please #Pawsforthought and help The Wild at Heart Foundation in our efforts to end this problem by developing  humane ways to reduce the stray dog population – birth control formulas and neuter/spay campaigns…!
