As one of the UK’s leading luxury event florists, we have noticed a dramatic increase in our clients holding parties to celebrate the end of summer. Take inspiration for your next event from this stunning Indian Summer party that Lavender Green Flowers recently designed and created floral designs for.
With September now upon us there is even more reason to have a party, a little pick-me-up to celebrate a fantastic summer and sweeten the entry into autumn. Multi-generational, the end of summer party is always full of energy with a group of people who are just passionate about having fun, and our brief as events florists is to simply create the most amazing floral backdrop.
At Lavender Green Flowers we have noticed that the annual end of summer is now an eagerly awaited event. Each year the parties (and the flower arrangements) have got bigger and better, with a particular trend for celebrating outside:
“Everyone is after that magical, fairy tale experience and everybody wants to be outside. There are so many ways of doing something outside that looks stunning but in a relaxed way too,” says Sue Barnes, Creative Director of Lavender Green Flowers.
Our expert florists recently designed the flowers for an ‘Indian Summer’ themed party.
Sue says: “It was as if Ibiza meets the Raj, with a younger, relaxed and informal vibe, not at all Bollywood but cool!”
Thousands of beautiful flowers were involved in the creation of the event and over twenty of our Lavender Green Flowers florists played their part in creating these designs.
Guests entered along a stunningly beautiful arched walkway, with each arch completely filled with vibrant coloured flowers, designed to complement the garden planting scheme. At the end of six arches, guests could just make out the Indian-inspired marquee designs but when they got to the end of the walkway, the beauty of the flowers stopped them in their tracks and took their breath away.
Our expert event florists strung carnations by hand to create beautiful draping curtains and they framed the ornate pergola, which was lit into the night with twinkling real flame lanterns. The flower chandelier was made bespoke for the client and is a new design we are sure we will be seeing more of.
We had such fun designing, creating and installing this bohemian Summer party.
“It was an incredible opportunity and one hell of a party! Every year Lavender Green Flowers feel so lucky to be involved in the event and I personally am incredibly privileged to be invited; dancing through lunch, carrying on all afternoon and before falling into a cab after midnight. Not bad for a lunch party and a mark of its success!”
