The Hawksmoor,Guildhall, Event Showcase
Last week I was asked to make up some flowers for a showcase event at The Hawksmoor Steakhouse restaurant in Guildhall. After setting up party flowers there earlier in the year, I was kindly chosen as a preferred supplier for future events at the venue. The restaurant is a perfect place for a city wedding reception with ample space for drinks and canapes, followed by a meat filled feast in the restaurant until 2am. The venue is very cool with dark wood panelling, leather chairs and gorgeous herringbone floors. I'm yet to try the food but its on my list of 'must do's' this year!
The flowers were set up for a long table of 25 guests using old cut glass dishes and bottles. Each vessel filled with white and green flowers with a hint of dusty pink. Dahlias, Peonies, Nigella,Tulips and sweet avalanche roses. Senecio and Spirea were used to add texture. This combination was beautiful and worked perfectly against the dark wood interior. Unfortunately I didn't take my camera on site to show the set up! But this was a snap of them ready to go out the door!
