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.

We’ve been shooting more wonderful Christmas things today with the rather fabulous photographer Nick Stevens. This is a Stephen Johnson Happy sculpture that we used instead of a wreath, we think it looks rather spectacular – so spectacular in fact that we’re slightly concerned about how long it would stay on your front door!

We managed to get into the Whitehall banqueting Hall last Sunday while it was being prepared for an absolutely gorgeous wedding…

The guests guessed they were in for a special time as they were greeted by burning pyres and a red carpet.

Normally, the first thing that hits you when you enter the banqueting hall is the amazing ceiling painted by Reubens – it’s the only work by the artist to remain in it’s original position and it totally takes your breath away, but on Sunday this and the combination of Nikki’s elongated gold and silver chesterfield sofas, the low and long golden mirrored coffee tables and pouffes, luxurious rugs, absolutely gorgeous flowers and one of the most notable guest lists in town was enough to make your heart skip a couple of beats!

Nikki worked with the bride closely and they decided on a combination of black Dahlias, Hypnose, Pink Piano Roses and pale pink Dahlias to create a nude vintage look with dramatic bursts of black and red.

The gorgeous flowers were complimented by sumptuous brown damask table linen and gold rimmed crystal goblets to add to the overall luxurious feel…

It all looked so completely gorgeous, we were wishing we had an invite – especially when we saw the cake!

Halloween is coming up fast and our wonderful team at the Island have been busy creating some rather gorgeous seasonal treats for us. Taking Physalis fruit – more commonly known as the Chinese Lantern (for obvious reasons!) and attaching them to bare branches with wire, they created the illusion of a lantern festival in miniature, popping with colour!

While the finishing touches were being made Chris was determined to bring a Mexican Day of the Dead feel to his Halloween pumpkin with some pretty spectacular carving!

The team will be lighting the pumpkins tomorrow, so pop along to the Island to pick up your pumpkin and some tips from the experts on how to make yours look like it was carved by a pro!
