We have been shooting a gorgeous selection of bouquets that Nikki especially selected for Mother’s Day, we hope you like!

We love Parrot Tulips anyway, but there’s something really special about these candy coloured blooms, they’re just so pretty!

There’s something so delicate and wild about Sweet Peas they really do evoke a simpler time.

These hot pink Baroness Roses have an abundance of petals that help to create a fabulous posy.

The ‘All For Love’ Rose is a brand new variety, and it features very heavily in this gorgeous arrangement alongside green Guelder Rose and lilac Lilac. We’ve presented the bouquet in a pink glass vase with more than a nod to the Art Deco movement and we love it!

In our Peach Rose Bouquet we have included green Guelder Rose and white Lilac, which gives a really fresh feel.

With rambling Clematis, white Anemone and Forget – Me – Nots, this beautiful arrangement reminds us of picking flowers as a child in a wild garden. So delicate and pretty!

London-based artist Zadok Ben David created this incredible installation using 20,000 cut steel botanical specimens modeled from old textbook illustrations, each embedded in a thin layer of sand. On first encountering the sprawling array of plants they appear completely black, thus the installation’s title: Blackfield. However when viewed from the opposite side, a field of black turns into a wall of colour. We think it’s spectacular.

We absolutely adore Valentine’s Day and Nikki has been busy choosing some of her favourite roses to make sure that our Valentine’s bouquets are the best in the country. When these arrived in our Pimlico store, we love roses so much we couldn’t resist taking a few images, we only wish we could capture the aroma too – the scent of the Augusta Louise is completely divine!

The sensual nude tones of these roses create something very special for Valentine’s Day, a beautiful and delicate alternative to passionate red.

The White O’Hara has a gorgeous peachy pink hue which reminds us of swirling petticoats!

The Red Piano is a classic garden rose – filled to bursting with beautiful petals!

This is the Pink Piano, just as gorgeous but with a dash of hot pink fun!

The Augusta Louise is completely fabulous to look at and is just as deliciously scented.

This is The Baroness, a slightly looser and more delicate garden rose in vibrant hot pink.

And finally, the absolute classic red rose – long stemmed with a stunning head of passionate velvety petals, who wouldn’t swoon at a dozen of these!

Nikki was invited to a very special grand unveiling tonight…

The creative director of Lanvin, the utterly fabulous Alber Elbaz has designed Claridge’s Christmas tree this year and he’s certainly pulled off a very glittery coup!

“We wanted to make all our Christmas dreams come true; an infusion of tradition and modernity together. That is Lanvin,” explained Elbaz.

Joined by the Lanvin family enjoying Christmas, the tree is a sparkling riot of colour and glitter…

And how does one top this?     ….with Alber of course!!

With a backdrop of the fabulous London skyline, last night’s dinner called for a contemporary look which was still very classic. This was achieved with a gorgeous mix of green orchids, succulents and grasses combined with cream roses, hydrangea and snowball blooms…

In the standing bar area, Nikki chose eight plinths with small arrangements of white tulips with tea lights on clear boxes with mirrored bottoms filled with cream rose petals, the effect was completely delightful.

The sculpture gallery at Woburn Abbey was completely transformed last night by Nikki and her amazing events team. Nikki worked with the concept of a gentlemen’s club and at one end of the gallery created a sumptuous seating area with worn and comfortable leather chesterfield sofas in muted tones that beautifully complimented the walls and paintings…

Directly opposite the main entrance, the guests were treated to an absolutely stunning arrangement on a massive scale…!

At the other end of the hall – Nikki and the team created an opulent dinner setting for the guests which was absolutely breathtaking.

The clients were absolutely thrilled with the effect and the evening was a huge success!

Nikki has been busy designing an event at Woburn Abbey this weekend, and some of the table centres were put together at our Pimlico store, where we managed to snap them before they winged their way to be admired by the great and the good!

We’re constantly amazed by Nikki’s eye for colour and form and this table setting against a grey linen backdrop is absolutely stunning.
