When you enter the Studio of the sensational Pinstripes and Peonies events florists, you would perhaps expect the luscious scents of flowers to fill your senses; not so. This team have been so wonderfully busy in the last few months that the smell of coffee is the primary fragrance, we think that the team are a step away from a direct IV drip of caffeine, it’s just a matter of time.
In what has been the company’s most successful year to date, the past month alone has seen these floral geniuses deliver over 150 events. Their amazing team have expanded once more and they have welcomed the insanely talented Lucy Sinclair to their ranks. Lucy says ‘I don’t even like coffee…’, *twitches*.
The past week has seen the team share their love of Halloween all over London with mass send-outs of pumpkins and carving kits to all of their favourite people (DISCLAIMER: the team say that if you didn’t get one, buy more flowers). Head of Event Design, Cathryn Goddard had this to say; “We love to treat our wonderful clients and venues with a little something every now and again, but I now have carpal tunnel after tying all those kits. You better have all enjoyed it!” The team have seen a sensational response to the #PumpkinChallenge with favourites being the Natural History Museum, Banqueting House and Food Show for their incredible creations. We are assured that prizes are coming your way soon!
Pinstripes and Peonies delivered gorgeous autumnal arrangements to the Guildhall earlier in October for the Man Booker Prize, bringing seasonal colour and miniature pumpkins to the tables of some of the greatest minds in literature. Event Designer Sinead O’Halloran had this to say “Seriously. No. More. Pumpkins. Give me a bauble any day”.
As the team head towards a busy Christmas season, Creative Director, Ruari McCulloch reflects on the strengths that his company has gone to in recent years and the enviable position in which they now sit in this incredible industry; “Wibble”.
