Flowers for Easter
Whether you wish to decorate your house with lush spring flowers for Easter, or you're looking for a seasonal gift to offer on this occasion, Neill has created a range of bouquets and arrangements in glorious colours and textures that express the joy of spring. In this blog post, he introduces us to his designs and shares his inspirations.
Every year, Easter arrives in mid to late Spring following my visit to Holland, to the bulb fields and the magnificent Keukenhof gardens which are for me the most spectacular spring gardens in the world. No wonder that these sourcing visits are a deep inspiration for my Easter Collection of bouquets and arrangements that you can now order online or see in our Belgravia boutique and in our concession at Harrods.
This year we have 5 ranges of designs that we recommend for Easter, in the tints and tones of the garden at this time of the year. Let me share with you the designs and the Dutch landscapes that inspired them.
Our Kensington Collection (above) was inspired by views of the Daffodils in the bulb fields and the flower beds of the Keukenhof Gardens.
Our Knightsbridge range of designs expresses the purple and blue tones of spring, mixed with a touch of yellow and white.
This combination of purple Anemones, Clematis and Orchids, pink Ranunculi and Roses, Tulips, Narcissi and other gorgeous blooms was inspired by the dynamic mix of colours in the Keukenhof flower beds.
Of course the traditional colour for floral designs at Easter is yellow. Hence, we have created the Motcomb range of bouquets and arrangements in different tints and tones of yellow, from pale lemon to dark gold...
And here are some of my inspirations for this rich colour palette, again, from the fabulous spring flowers of the Keukenhof Gardens and a visit to one of our favourite Rose breeders.
Exceptionally chic and sophisticated, our Grosvenor range of designs for Easter offers an elegant display of white flowers with green and silver-grey foliage.
The Spring blossoms and spectacular blooms in the Keukenhof Gardens along with a visit to two Rose growers inspired these designs.
Our Chelsea range is created with a mix of seasonal blooms in pink and yellow, the quintessential colours of spring blossoms and so many of my favourite spring flowers in the garden. This colour palette offers a beautiful alternative for Easter.
The glorious landscapes of the bulb fields and the majestic Keukenhof Gardens offer many scenes with this colour theme which I absolutely adore.
I hope the wonderful sights I experience on my travels in Holland that I have shared with you here bring you both pleasure and inspiration as they do me. Do take a look at our Easter Collection which you can order online and we will deliver anywhere in central and greater London. If you prefer to pop into the Belgravia boutique, we will be open on Good Friday, March 30th and Saturday, March 31st from 10 am until 4 pm. We will be closed on Easter Sunday and Easter Monday.
May I wish you all a very Happy Easter.
