A stunning bridal bouquet in pretty pastel shades and a wonderful assortment of different textures was created by the very talented Ashley at Tinge. I love the combination of pale apricot Café au Lait Dahlias, soft pink Snowberry, ice white Butterfly Ranunculus, deep burgundy Scabious, and ombre Distant Drums roses together with Viburnum Berry and Ferns.

British Flowers Week
New Covent Garden Market, the UK’s premier flower supplier, will be celebrating British Flowers Week from 10th-16th June 2019. The seventh year of the market’s campaign is set to unite florists, flower growers and wholesalers, encouraging them to put Britain’s best blooms on display across the UK to show support for the country’s floral industry.
Building on the success of the campaign, this year will see five top UK florists create innovative installations for a collaborative exhibition between New Covent Garden Market and the Garden Museum. Florists exhibiting include; Ruth Davis of All for Love, Terri Chandler and Katie Smyth from Worm, Graeme Corbett from Bloom + Burn, Rowan Blossom and Carly Rogers of Carly Rogers Flowers.
RHS Chelsea Flower Show, Chelsea & Belgravia in Bloom
Next week, I’ll be writing a Flowerona blog post about florists and flower growers taking part in these Chelsea and Belgravia events. And the post will be along the similar lines of last year’s blog post. I’d love to hear from you if you’re involved in any of these events! Simply send me an email.
Ottawa Flower Market
Ottawa Flower Market, a once a month outdoor cut flower market dedicated to local flowers and foliage, is taking place on May 18th. It brings together local growers and the community in the midst of the neighbourhood of Hintonburg. You’ll be able to browse the seasonal selection of flower packed stalls plus get to know the local growers and what they offer.
It’s been a whirlwind of a last couple of weeks and as you may have read on Instagram, I’ve visited Wales, Bristol and Salcombe! Tuesday saw me back at New Covent Garden Flower Market and then again on Friday afternoon for a meeting with the CGMA (Covent Garden Market Authority).
On Wednesday, I headed over to Ealing for a gathering organised by Elizabeth Cairns to celebrate her book, The Empowered Entrepreneur (* affiliate link). It was so lovely to meet up with so many talented creatives.
So, I hope you’ve enjoyed this week Floristry Industry Insight and look out for the next blog post all about Chelsea and Belgravia floristry happenings!
