Pinstripes and Peonies Update

Monday, June 4, 2018 - 11:00

For anyone finding themselves in West London, knowing a florist, or exposed to any kind of media source during rhe last week of May, you would know that in the flower calendar, it's one of the biggest weeks of the year and there's only one place to be - Chelsea!

We were honoured to be asked again to design one of the stand out Chelsea Week parties at the perfectly located Royal Hospital Chelsea. Last year the theme was green, green, green and lots of luscious foliage. To shake things up, this year we decided to go to the other end of the scale by using flowers; lots and LOTS of flowers! (If you think 5, very full van loads of flowers then that's about the right amount of lots.)

To keep on trend with the popular loose and wild theme championing this year, we created vast meadows around the statues, down the stairs of the Octagon, in the mantlepieces and framing the entrance ways. The paths and doorways were lined with numerous large urns on plinths, each spilling with summer florals. As if these weren't traffic-stoppig enough (true story, traffic literally stopped to look), we then created a canopy over the centralbar in the Great Hall and surrounded it with six, lavishly adorned pillars. It's beauty really is too difficult to describe...so it's a good job we have the ever-so talented Holly Clark on hand to take photographs! We've inlcuded a few here for you lucky, lucky people to feast your eyes on but do head over to our Instagram to check out more.

So at the end of Chelsea week how did we all feel? Tired? Broken? Relieved? Mostly just pretty darn proud of ourselves! And in need of a gin...
