Pinstripes and Peonies have come through the first quarter of 2017 relatively unscathed, and as the team approach that time of year that sees Chelsea Flower Show ensure that the team are busier than ever, they have reflected on the successes that have brought them to this moment.
Creative Director, Ruari McCulloch reflects on the success of the last 12 months; “Essentially, we’ve absolutely smashed it. We don’t believe in targets for the Team, but if we had them – they would have blown them away. Literally. We’ve seen a 60% increase in the number of enquiries we receive and a complementing increasing to the number of confirmations which, I think, it just verifiable evidence that the industry is realising that we are, in fact, the best.”
The team finished the run up to Easter with a large private event at the stunning Victoria and Albert Museum alongside The Recipe and Wise Productions. McCulloch noted; “This was an event that truly showcased how bada** we are at Pinstripes and Peonies. This event had an incredibly specific brief that focused entirely on design. We were able to create arrangements that not only met the expectations of that brief, but exceeded it. We pride ourselves on really listening to our Clients - their dreams, their hopes, their aspirations to own a unicorn – it’s what ensures that Client’s come back to us each time.”
Last week the Pinstripes and Peonies Team supported the stunning Somerset House in a two day event to promote the venue’s incredible Embankment Galleries which have rare availability from September 2017 – February 2018.
Head of Event Design, Cathryn Goddard, had this to say; “We were delighted to support Somerset House on this event, and no not just because I used to work there; Come. On. The Embankment Galleries are incredible spaces which have incredible diversity and amazing amounts of space in the most incredible location in town. We’ve provided a range of pieces from drinks reception, banqueting style and bar arrangements to show Clients the possibilities within this venue. We are obviously the perfect choice when hosting events at Somerset House as we know the venue pretty well…*winks*”
Head Florist, Leonie Bear commented “I’m so glad that we are based in the absolute hub of the floristry world in the Brand New Covent Flower Market and not in Windsor – I just, wanted to say that”. So, a bizarre note to finish this reflection of Pinstripes and Peonies. It’s clearly been a busy time for the team that has left them, quite delirious.
