Hello my dears, today I’m writing you from a super sunny and warm London . Spring time, especially here in London, is for sure my favorite one! The city during is literally blooming , you can admires colors everywhere and beautiful flowers around in park but not only. In fact London is famous for its being so good with florist! Shops, streets, restaurant are all full of them.
I personally love flowers cause they are able to give emotions, to change a room, to make your day better! I remember when I was asking my bf to put flowers into the house ad after some months he decide to follow my advice and the results was just amazing ( now we look like a flower shop!!). Can you feel my same passion? Do you feel the same happiness when waking up in the morning you have coffe with morning light and a fresh bunch of flowers?!
Well in matter of flower and gardening more in general, British are for sure the best one! If you are a Londoner you know what I mean… I’ve never saw such great flowers decorations as in London (something they aree really the best in are flowers’ walls). If you are in London in these day you can’t miss two great shows: the Chelsea Flower Show and the Mayfair Flower Show. What I really love about this events is that they are so quintessentially British.
Everyone loves to look at flowers, but here the design takes things to the next level! Inside the Chelsea show you can find the best flora varieties, all the news in gardening and also all the latest trends for bunches, flowers walls and sculptures. Even if you can’t go inside the Chelsea Show, there’s plenty else going on in the city to celebrate! One of the best place to go is for sure Sloane Street where you can admire shops “dressing up” for the occasion with big sculptures of animals made entirely by flowers and green. What you for sure miss this year is the Elephant ( I love elephants by the way) in Sloane Square and the Giraffe on Sloane Street.
It’s not only about Chelsea… In the last years also Mayfair (my fav place in town!) dress up for the occasion. The place you can’t miss is for sure the famous restaurant Sketch in 9 Conduit Street. The show is set to fragment its grounds into allotments. Five canvas where exhibitors install their gardens showing their passion for the British flora tradition. This year the facade will be called The Land of Nod and is curated by Carly Rogers Flowers with horizontal overgrown vegetation climbing the walls. The entrante all is curated by JamJar Flowers and looks like being in a country lane passing through a floral tunnel. The reception is curated by Tony Marklew and is an ode to the House of Dior, celebrating their 70th Anniversary with a garden of roses. The lecture Room and the Library is curated by Rebel Rebel and it’s a Warden case of quintessentially English flowers. The East Bar & Pods is a Delphinium Jungle curated by Figa & Co is the place where you can feel a stately English garden.
Not only, all the city tries to show their best in flora tradition. Always in Mayfair, you can’t miss the facade of the Maddox Gallery and the facade of my favorite private member club in Mount Street, George. What I really love is the fact that everything here is curated till the last little details. Nothing is left to chance! Last but not least advice: also tea time dress up for the occasion! My favorite spots are for sure at Sketch ( I mean you can’t miss it in this period really!!) and at The Dorchester hotel!
Hurry up! Put on your Maison Michel hats, dress like the Duchesse of Cambridge ( I love the royals style is so classy and so British) and discover this amazing London in bloom!
