"Give me odorous at sunrise a garden of beautiful flowers" Walt Whitman
The annual Harper Collins Summer Party has become something Nikki Tibbles Wild at Heart looks forward to each year and this year was no exception! We set out to create an enchanted, sun-lit forest in Kensington Palace's beautiful Orangery. Luckily, it was another balmy summer's night, with the sunshine casting a delicious haze over the whole evening
Our colour palette was ivory, parchment white, soft ambers, rose golds, creamy peaches, smooth apricots and velvety champagne tones. Using fragrant apricot and lemon stocks, peach delphiniums, cream and peach peonies and antique caramel roses, we created large flower meadows around magnificent, paper trees and floor to ceiling flower columns which framed both the entrance to the Orangery and provided stunning focal points inside the terrace marquee. What with the fragrant stocks and peonies, the room smelt divine, while the blend of colours provided a visual feast for all the literary guests.
