Weddings so far this year . . .

We haven’t reached Easter yet, but the wedding season has definitely started and it is going to be a busy and varied one!

We’ve had gorgeous fragrant sandy toned Roses with Roisin at the beginning of January followed by delicate ivory and pale pink flowers with Becky at the fabulous Dartmouth House









Then it was off to South London with the cool early Spring scented delights of Hyacinths, Narcissi and Snowdrops with Alison in February and today, amid the St Patrick’s Day celebrations in central London, we were back at One Whitehall with Becky’s friend Amy, who chose a gorgeous mix of pinks and ivories highlighted with accents of acid green achieved with our favourite, the glorious Guelder Rose


Next up we have a birthday party at Hampton Court House featuring daffodils and Spring flowers in honour of the Welsh birthday boy and a host of wedding consultations for both this year and next which are coming in thick and fast – some as close as May this year, others for June 2013. Either way we are having a great time and enjoying seeing our happy brides and grooms




March Weddings

Last weekend we were back at One Whitehall Place for a beautiful Spring inspired wedding.

We used seasonal flowers throughout – Apple Blossom, parrot Tulips, fragrant Narcissi and pure white Hyacinths, ivory Roses and scented Freesia with accents of very pale pink Ranunculi and bright green Guelder Rose. Masses of pillar candles, petals and lily of the valley scented nite lites gave a truly magical effect at this wonderful venue

Design Week at Chelsea Harbour

Last week was the annual London Design Week at the Design Centre in Chelsea Harbour. With around 70 companies taking part and showing off their most recently launched collections of fabric, lighting, carpet, furniture and more, it was a great opportunity to see what the current trends are for interior design around the world.

One of our oldest clients, fabric designers Jab, has moved to a stunning, much larger new showroom at Imperial Wharf More photos to follow soon

We provided flower displays for some of the new showrooms at the Centre – Edelman Leathers, a wonderfully tactile showroom with leather and skins in fantastic designs, patterns and colours covering the entire floor, walls and furniture We chose burnt orange James Storey orchids and silvery blue Eucalyptus to echo the tan leather tiles on the walls and ceiling and the snakeskin effect printed leather on the console table at the entrance.

We also created an unusual display for Wired, a new showroom featuring the most amazing collection of lights. They wanted something striking which would work with their dramatic lighting designs. So we chose hot pink Orchids, dark red passion Roses, green date palms and bright orange Protea!

Another of our long standing clients, the American design company J Robert Scott, has been at the Design Centre for many years, and has a fantastic contemporary collection of fabrics and furniture in the most wonderfully glamorous shades of cream, taupe, cinnamon, mink, chocolate with some accents of black and burnt orange/red

Lovers of white flowers, this year they had French Tulips.

Another  showroom new to the Design Centre, The Bradley Collection, have an incredible range of curtain poles and finials. To keep with their contemporary image, we designed a display comprising white Hyacinths, Ranunculi and Eucalyptus in clear glass cylinders which was both fresh and Spring like
