Lavender Green Flowers

Tuesday, July 26, 2016 - 12:15

As England held their breath to see if we would make it to the next round of the Euros, Lavender Green Flowers found themselves at that bastion of historic power and intrigue, the Tower of London. Armed with woodland flowers, moss, candles, and a throne, the White Tower was transformed into an enchanted forest. After a private tour of the crown jewels, guests arrived at the drinks reception in a natural secret garden installation featuring birch trees covered in hanging brightly coloured ribbon, a mossed carpet, and the mossed throne. Guests were then then lead to the main event space, where a birch pole archway massed with flowers and soft ferns stood within a stylised garden as if it had been growing there forever. A sea of candles formed a soft and intimate backdrop and to allow the guests to truly engross themselves, and enjoy the food and wine catered by Alison Price.
Next, a delightful party at the Guildhall, with Ampersand and Light Motif where Lavender Green Flowers transformed the space into a dream-like event. Opulent crystal candelabra, with tall tree table centres meant guests were dining in the most enchanted woodland; contrasting the dessert in The Crypts which was vibrant and zesty, replicating the fantasy of Midsummer Night’s Dream. With many thanks to Matt Chung for the amazing photographs.
One of the highlights of the art world is the summer exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts. LGF styled designs that featured textured foliage and loosely arranged flowers. Vivid hues, juxtaposed with soft leafy greens, created a fresh vibrant colour palette. These teamed with white stone urns and matching plinths kept focus on the summer flowers, while guests sipped Champagne and nibbled canapés discreetly served by Rocket Food.
The monochrome tiled floors of the Tate Britain hosted the most lavishly themed 1960s event last week, paying homage to the music of the Beatles. With an entrance of the iconic Abbey Road zebra crossing, a giant yellow submarine bar, manned by By Word Of Mouth, and ‘strawberry fields’ food station, the event saw the Tate transported back to the 60s. In the forefront of the flower power revolution, LGF created arrangements with white flowers in black containers, mirroring the monochrome theme, which allowed the “Yellow Submarine” to take centre stage. Hydrangea, peonies and black eyed daisies made a big statement of their own within this beautiful classic space.
