The company's events team observed that throughout the show, there were consistent themes of exploration, nostalgia and sustainability. The various gardens made the viewer want to touch, feel and explore everything within them, and included charming narratives hidden within the details.
From HRH The Duchess of Cambridge’s woodland garden, complete with a tree-house and swing, to Mark Gregory's canal lock and Nadine Charlton’s real-life playhouses, a great number of displays had families and childhood at their hearts, celebrating the great outdoors and the joy of spending time in nature.
The LGF team of senior designers and florists followed this idea in terms of their own flower installations, focusing on natural elements. Akin to the displays created by other exhibitors at the show, LGF set up full, lush and almost overgrown displays characterised by a plethora of leafy plants.
The team also used natural, chic bark containers, giving a subtle nod to the wilderness. Larger leafed plants and mixed textures added a playful sense of adventure and drama.
To add vibrancy, LGF selected beautiful, simple flowers which were clustered together in groups. The team were initially inspired by unusual flowering plants with simple pops of colour, and brought this concept to life with white Nerines, White Iris and Ornithogalum, as well as delicate flowers ranging from burnt oranges and mustard yellows, to pinks and purples.
Lastly, the florists created the table centres in such a way that they would change as the plants and flowers opened up and grew throughout the week. This gave the design a beautifully different look and perspective each day as they flourished.
LGF produce work for the country’s top galleries, museums and historic houses. From weddings and receptions to private parties and corporate events, their thoughtfully-crafted arrangements and installations draw inspiration from the latest trends in floristry, fashion and art.
