Whilst daffodils brighten the fields and vibrant, scented hyacinths are displaying in gardens, here in the flower world, we look further ahead
The almost infinite varieties of tulip, one of the few flowers to continue to grow after being cut, come into their own and deliver wonderful colour in table designs. Stunning blossom has arrived too.
The British Museum's amazing new ‘Defining Beauty’ exhibition, which looks at how the ancient Greeks perceived and represented the human body as an object of beauty, has been the back drop to a number of our flower displays in the last two weeks - such a privilege.
The RA’s illustrious schools auction played host to our more contemporary ‘hanging tulip’ table centre designs – an inspiration from our ceiling hung tulips. These were placed on light-boxes to create a table centre which was truly unique and added to the chic atmosphere of the evening, which was ultimately a great success with over £300,000 being raised for the RA Schools.
At the V&A the totally unmissable Alexander McQueen exhibition is continuing to inspire an array of slightly gothic designs. To avoid monotony our creative team chooses a different theme or dress of his for every event.
We’ve also frequented the London Transport museum, Tower of London and National Portrait Galleries recently with Kensington Palace also a chosen venue for some of our contemporary, vibrant, bright tulips.
