Lavender Green Flowers

As August, and the summer holidays, draws to a close (unfortunately taking the sunshine with it) , we had our busiest weekend of weddings  a few days ago, when we dressed churches, elegant marquees, hotels and Hampton Court Palace. How lucky some couples are to hold their wedding at Hampton Court Palace- such a dramatic setting in which to start off married life.

It was also a real pleasure to see our work being delivered and installed in iconic venues like Wellington Arch, National Portrait Gallery and Westminster Abbey, alongside hotels, private homes and many summer sporting events.

Long has the 15th August been celebrated by nations around the world as the end of World War II, and this year was no exception. Westminster Abbey was the location for the start of events to commemorate the anniversary of Victory Over Japan Day. This year we maintained the English country feel and provided virtually invisible mirrored troughs filled with wild red heather, beautiful green ferns, red begonias and red English garden roses for the royal box. In addition to this we created rustic table centres filled with seasonal hydrangeas to set off the quintessentially English afternoon tea in the marquee of the Westminster Abbey Gardens.

We continued our involvement at Westminster Abbey by providing the flowers for World Humanitarian Day, which traditionally is held on 19th August. On the eve of this special day we provided both a wreath and an abundance of white avalanche roses to be lain in remembrance of all aids workers who have lost their lives in humanitarian action.

We had the privilege to dress an intimate, yet dramatic, dinner for a Private Press guest list in the long Victorian Galleries within the National Portrait Gallery. With designs in different sizes scattered among elegant lamps and gold edged tableware, the feel of the evening was crisp, fresh and end of summer; which lent itself to the warm lighting that was softly trickling from the delicate nightlights draped along the centre of the table. With a white and green colour way, this worked effortlessly with the overall style; enticing guests in, whilst complementing the theme of the evening.
