Writing the Lavender Green newsletter for November has proven to be somewhat exciting this month, as the past few weeks have seen floral arrangements of a hugely paradoxical nature
Whilst usually at this time of year, following a seasonal line of weather inspired chat about what flowers are In and out of season and how our client’s drinking habits have changed from Mulled Wine to Pimms and resultantly which venue suits which. This month’s proved far more complex.
You’d think that walking into the LG HQ on an October Friday morning to see prototypes of Christmas wreaths and tree’s is strange enough. Apparently not. A few days later, we were met by what can only be described as a murder scene befitting of a teen horror movie. It would seem that the usual stroll past beautiful flowers to the office had been replaced with distressed vintage dolls, glaring at you as you walk through the offal filled jars and blood splattered pumpkins and skulls, all beautifully framed with sumptuous deep red roses and dahlia. Fortunately this only lasted a week and after converting our client’s home into Elm Street, some group therapy and Horlicks for the insomnia, we were back to the festive wreaths and trees.
Some of our favourite UVL venues that we have been frequenting have been the Imperial War Museum and Royal Academy. We were honoured to again be part of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year awards at the NHM and look forward to dressing The Guildhall for the Save the Children charity fundraiser.
We are also very excited about being re-accredited at the Saatchi Gallery and look forward to working with the elite of the preferred suppliers.
Next time this comes around we’ll be donning elf hats and talking all things Christmas. Expect cold weather small talk, mulled-wine references and venue ideas for our clients to ponder as they open their gifts.
