November is without doubt the busiest month for most big florists, and Lavender Green Flowers have teams of their florists and installers spread right across London and the Home Counties; working in hotels, museums and private homes sprinkling Christmas wherever they go. UVL especially have seen a lot of their stunning work this month.
Although London is seeing its fair share of big corporate receptions and dinners at this time of year, a trend is definitely developing for more top draw events for carefully selected client customers at exclusive high end dinners in some of UVL’s smaller, more sumptuous and intimate venues. And of the moment, for those clients hosting such quietly opulent dinners, tends to be long tables! Long tables must be every florist’s dream to decorate as they can be so much more expressive and creative.
Lavender Green Flowers created a beautiful long table display at the intimate Sir John Soane’s Museum, with their staff working with the By Word Of Mouth team to ensure every guest had excellent sightlines across the table. The client chose rich reds to complement the raspberry tones of the Museum. Not long afterwards LGF were dressing long tables at The Foundling Museum with inspiration drawn from Dutch Still Life/Baroque paintings creating loose designs using lots of textured foliage in autumnal shades to pop against the spearmint green walls.
At the Tower of London, the client boldly chose clear, long tables and chairs within this historic, grand building, with Lavender Green Flowers finishing off the dramatic room set with opulent crystal candelabra to create an enchanting atmosphere – a fantastic take on what could have been a fairly traditional banquet in one of London’s most historic venues.
The Images of Nature Gallery at the Natural History Museum was chosen for their Trustees’ dinner, which Lavender Green Flowers decorated with crisp, clean and simple flowers against grey linen on long tables. Only green flowers, including Orchids, set within different sizes of mirrored cubes were used –tealights along the length then softened this sleek, corporate styling to maximum effect.
At another event, presided over by Her Majesty The Queen, the long table was unassumingly decorated with rich autumn colours including glossy Sweet Chestnuts and two-tone Leonardis rose petals.
Watch out for Lavender Green Flowers over the next couple of weeks, particularly in the National Gallery - home of the wonderful Caravaggio exhibition - where they will be present 3 times within the week, and also at the top of Christmas Trees throughout London spreading seasonal joy and amazing decorations.
