HRH The Princess Royal and Flowers for a Special Event

Hello all, and a somewhat belated Happy New Year to everyone.

Well, the New Year has kicked off in the most exciting fashion and is looking more than promising, as we were most honoured to be asked to provide flowers for a wonderfully prestigious event which took place here, in Sheffield, this week.

Princess Anne, The Princess Royal, is well known for her charity work, and was here to officially open the Exchange Brewery, home to The Adsetts Partnership, founded by Sir Norman Adsett who was awarded the OBE for his services to the voluntary sector.  The move to it's new heeadquarters means it will be based in the same place as its partner organisations, Autism Plus and Jobsteps Employment.

We were thrilled to be asked to design floral decorations to be placed not only beside the plaque which the Princess unveiled, but also to create something suitable for the Princess's exclusive dining table at lunch! Squeak! Talking everything through with Kate, who organised the event, we decided on blues to represent Adsetts corporate colours, freshened up with touches of whites and creams; designed in our signature natural, rustic, romantic style.

Here are a few early pics of our designs - I just can't wait to see the official professional photographs!

This table arrangement was to sit on the buffet table in the Princess Royal's private dining room

I'll pop a few more pics on this blog once they come in from the press photographer.

'Til then, enjoy!
