Night Garden at the Chelsea Flower Show
We loved loved loved being asked to provide the floral decoration for the trade stand of Hector Finch Lighting at the Chelsea Flower Show this year. Chelsea, darling! The stand was painted midnight blue, the ceiling covered with indigo denim and a large central tabledraped with rich deep blue velvet, so scrumptious, and all this deep darkness was the perfect foil for the company's exquisite Italian glass globes, which are suspended in a great cluster from a central ceiling rose above the table. After the installation was complete, we planted up the space with airy, ethereal plants, globes and spires and feathery foliage, to emphasise the otherworldy atmosphere, we hope. Now we have to wait and see what the public thinks. First day tomorrow!
