Another Day in the Office

  • By admin

An early morning start is made much easier with the delight of unwrapping boxes of wonderful seasonal flowers and conditioning them ready for display. This ritual is repeated each morning with each fresh consignment of flowers that are delivered to the store. Our flowers are always displayed in groups and in order of their colour. The summer months are perfect for seasonal flowers including many home grown in Britain. With a multitude of flowers with countless varieties and colours to choose from. You must pay us a visit!

Summer Wedding at the Connaught

We love a collaboration and a challenge, so working with an established and successful wedding planner to create flowers for her wedding was, for us, a very rewarding experience. The Connaught was chosen for the wedding venue and the brief was very simple.

“I love colour, I’d like to celebrate seasonal summer flowers and I’d like my guests to gasp when the see the flowers”

The Ballroom at was transformed with masses of gorgeous summer flowers such a peony, garden rose, hydrangea and guilder rose. The tables were adorned with exquisite flowers and candles and the ceiling dressed with faux blossom and decorative bird cages. Audible gasps achieved and a delighted bride who’s very high expectations were surpassed.

“The flowers were exactly what I wanted – for me they were the most important part of the organising the wedding and I was thrilled and delighted with what you and your team created”.

Celebrating Wimbledon

  • By admin

We’ve been very busy creating Wimbledon inspired installations throughout London. The lobby at Claridge’s Hotel in Mayfair has been transformed with masses of hydrangea in the tournament colours. We’re avidly following developments on court, and will be serving a few aces of our own this Sunday, creating flowers fit for champions at The Wimbledon Championship Gala Dinner.

Perfect Peony

  • By admin

How can you not be seduced by the magnificent charm of the peony. Prized for their masses of translucent layered petals the peony transformation from an unappealing bud is remarkable. The traditional season for peonies last fora mere six weeks which gives all the more reason to adore them whilst they last. We certainly make the most of them when the season arrives each year and we love to use them on mass for maximum impact. The Grove hotel has been dressed throughout with these seasonal beauties and we love hearing admiring comments from staff within the hotel.
