The Banqueting House
The Leading Hotels of the World were hosting the most fabulous dinner party at one of the Historic Royal Palaces most prestigious venues the Banqueting House and we were honoured to be asked to style the event with flowers.
Masses of seasonal beech formed height and drama punctuating the table with almost tree like status. Jewelled tones of reds, purples and pinks adorned the dining table in the form of the most opulent displays of Roses, Dahlias and Clematis.
Dining under the iconic ‘Ruben’s Roof’, originally built for the performance of ‘masques’ demanded a theatrical, vibrant display of flowers and H&R events certainly enjoyed rising to the challenge! How could we not be inspired by not only the magnificent ceiling but the sheer beauty of the historical architecture.
Captured by the fabulous Holly Clark Photography we simply couldn’t choose a favourite feature. The scale of the tablescape offset by the incredible interior of the Banqueting House made for one of our favourite events of the year!
A Summer Showcase
A summer showcase at Merchant Taylor’s Halls - a beautiful livery hall hidden behind the Bank of England. The party included drinks in the courtyard garden followed by a formal reception in the Drawing Room.
We chose the very finest seasonal flowers in an array of bright candy colours including hydrangeas, roses, scabious, spray roses, black berries, alliums, nigella and phlox.
The Dining Room has the most beautiful wallpaper we’ve ever seen and inspired the key colours in our floral decoration. Strong sugar-candy pastel colours and equally vibrant vases were the order of the day and worked brilliantly in the courtyard garden and in the Drawing Room.
The table centres created by Fiona were unbelievably beautiful and we loved the quirky look created by the fluorescent pastel bud vases.
An intimate members party for twenty-four guests, including drinks and canapés in The Gallery followed by an evening meal in The Boardroom. Our client wanted to create a dream-like décor with a subtle 1920’s feel.
To contrast with the pale green walls we opted for Coral Peonies, Miss Piggy Roses, Sweet Avalanche Roses, Peach Avalanche Roses, Muscari, Sweet Peas, Viburnum, Larkspur and Hydrangea. The table flowers were arranged in low vases to allow for easy conversation, but we created a landscape of vases on either side of the room creating an intimate atmosphere.
We took inspiration from the classic interior decoration and the gold colouring associated with BAFTA. We opted for bright clashing flowers, masses of crystal vases, tall cut glass candle sticks and fine gold detailing on the glasses and charger plates.
“Our guests literally gasped when they entered the room, it was like being on a movie set! The flowers looked absolutely spectacular and created such an amazing atmosphere. Thank you so much for all your hard work.”
