To celebrate British Flowers Week The British Florist Association along with members Capel Manor College and New Covent Garden Flower Market arranged for a stunning pedestal made entirely out of British Flowers and Foliage to adorn one of the most famous residence in the UK.
After a some organisation and explanation Downing Street were pleased to also join in with the celebrations of British Flowers Week the national celebration of British flowers, the growers and the independent florists that champion the use of these seasonal locally grown delights.
Four student from Capel Manor college Carly Sparks, Julie Bremner, Niamh Keane, and Tilly Bowell along with their tutor Natalie Revett met at New Covent Garden Flower Market, where they have a class room in the mezzanine level above the main floor where all the traders are located. After selecting the British flowers and foliage from generous traders they began making the large pedestal that would later adorn the busy entrance room of number 10.
The stunning pedestal arrangement included seasonal summer flowers of Delphinium, Peonies, Roses, Alstroemeria, stocks, astrantia, and foliage of beech and whitebeam. It was not only a sight to behold but the fragrant too.
The student along with Tutor and Chairman of the British Florist Association delivered the flowers in person to No. 10. Once there they made the most of the photo opportunities outside that famous front door!
An added bonus then came as in gratitude to the work they had done the group were invited to have a tour of the residence that was home to around 50 prime minister that had lead the country.
