Last week, I visited a new trade show, called The Landscape Show at Olympia in London and today I thought I’d share with you some of the photos of London florists’ stands from the event.
The stunning arrangement above was by Simon J Lycett. It includes pink peonies, pink lilies, red parrot tulips, pink cherry blossom and lime green guelder rose.
Below are photos from the Jane Packer stand. Jane picked a monochrome colour scheme for the event, with the first image showing white phalaenopsis orchids in black vases of differing heights. The second image shows white amaryllis flowers, very simply arranged in glass vases with white chippings.
Neil Birks of NB Flowers created the arrangements below, including the huge vase of pink cherry blossom.
There was an interesting stand from Ercole Moroni, as you’ll see in the images below of a ‘field’ of ranunculus plants.
Very well-known as a florist to the stars, Rob van Helden also supplies a vast array of props for florists as shown in the image below.
I loved Matthew Dickinson‘s vibrant stand featuring a table arrangement of roses and carnations, with gloriosa lily. The gloriosa also features in the second image, hanging from the ceiling in test tubes.
Last, but not least, was Mary Jane Vaughan‘s stand with a white and green colour scheme. It featured tulips arranged in tall vases with twigs, individual stems of solomon’s seal, lily of the valley and narcissi.
I hope you’ve enjoyed these images…the show really was a feast for the eyes!
