RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show 2013 – Jane Packer Flowers Floristry Demonstration : Part 1

Continuing my coverage of this year’s RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show, today I’m featuring two blog posts showing a floristry demonstration by the Jane Packer Flowers team at the show.

And there will be two more posts to follow tomorrow…

The first design, made by Diana is part of the Jane Packer Delivered new Summer Range. It’s a beautiful hand-tied bouquet called St Ives.

Here’s a close-up, followed by step-by-step images showing how she created it.

Diana started with ‘Memory Lane’ roses, purple trachelium, cream lisianthus and variegated foliage.

She then added powder blue hydrangeas and mint green carnations.

Isn’t it beautiful? I love the pastel shades and the combination of different textures.

As I write, there’s still no news about the imminent arrival of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s baby.

But if it is a boy, this would be the perfect bouquet for someone to send them!

Next, I’ll be featuring Part 2…my favourite design of the four that were made during the demonstration.
