Royal Opening of University Technical College Sheffield

We were really proud to be asked to design arrangements for the grand and official opening of the brand new University Technical College here in Sheffield, this week, by His Royal Highness (HRH) The Duke of Gloucester KG GVCO.

Readers of the blog will know that this isn't the first time we've been asked to design for a royal visit, when we were lucky enough to create floral arrangements during a visit by The Princess Royal to Sheffield earlier this year.

This time we were asked to decorate the brand new and very high tech UTC building which is extremely modern and quite geometric in its architecture. During a site visit, we discussed the brief in detail with our client and discovered that their logo uses predominately blue. We suggested using blues and white to create a strong colour contrast and to complement the very clean, white walls surrounding the designs.  It was decided to place a large scale pedestal design at the bottom of the stairs in the foyer where students and staff would congregate to meet and greet the Royal visitor.  In addition, we placed two long and low designs on the window ledges in the area the Duke of Gloucester was to unveil the specially designed plaque.

It was a real pleasure working with such a great new client and we really enjoyed designing for such a prestigious occasion too, as you can imagine!

Well, that's all we have for today, but we'll be with you again very soon with an update on how we got on at our latest wedding fair - the very fabulous Save the Date's Wedding Event with a Difference.

See you soon
