Bouquets that celebrate special events.

From our London based Studio we make beautiful bouquets for those special events in the day-day lives of our customers  - whether it is, ‘Thank You’ flowers for one of their London clients;

or a bright arrangement (see picture below) to show support to an actor friend on their first night of a theatre performance;

or simply a statement that “I love you” (see picture below).

Roses can be for any occasion of course – this beautiful peach and pastel pink bouquet was sent to a lady who was coming out of hospital. These particular shades (see picture below) were selcted as they are her favourite colours.

This arrangement (see picture below), was ordered by a young man for his girlfriend who he regrettably couldn’t be with on her special birthday.

Another birthday gift, this was for a young woman whose work colleagues almost forgot that it was her special day. We did an express delivery for them and as you can imagine they were relieved and very happy we could do so.

This ice-cream palette of flowers was for someone’s graduation from law school.

We always try to match the variety of flowers, their hues and shades, and the style of arrangement to the taste of the recipient. Therefore when you are ordering flowers from us do let us know what you think your colleague or loved one would like to have in their home.

Flor Unikon Flowers at Food at 52 Cookery School

Cookery and wreath making classes at Food at 52

Our final Corporate wreath making class of this season recently took place at the Food at 52 Cookery School, Islington, London.

The ethos of this well respected independent school is far removed from what many of us may have experienced at the hands of junior and adult learning institutes. Instead, Food at 52 offers a bohemian and artistic space for learning how create a wide range of themed dishes, e.g. Moroccan, Spanish, Thai and stress free dinner parties. ‘Time Out’ Magazine offer their own praise “You’ve got to see this place. Much more than a cookery school, it’s a full culinary experience”.

Making the door wreaths

The group was split in two working parties. In the Kitchen, Group A were instructed by the Food at 52 team how to produce some delicious seasonal foods ; whilst in the reception lounge we taught Group B the techniques of wreath making. After 60 minutes we swopped groups.

Decorating the door wreaths

After about thirty minutes of weaving the branches onto the wreath bases each group were invited to decorate their wreaths using natural materials, such as berries, dried fruits and cinnamon sticks.

In all our years of teaching this subject we have never come across such a highly creative group of people. A few even adapted their wreath creations to make face masks and head crowns.

The completed crown was a very regal creation and the masks were highly original and looked very tribal.

Cookery classes

Both groups had great fun learning to cook a variety of seasonal fayre; unfortunately we were unable to stay for the final tastings but the aromas coming from the kitchen was proof enough for us that they had cooked up a delicious feast.

A heart felt thanks to all the Food at 52 team for inviting us and for making this fun event happen.

Flor Unikon Flowers at Max Mara

Max Mara Event, Saturday 19th November 2016

We recently co-hosted a customer event at the Weekend Max Mara’s store – Westbourne Grove. Max Mara customers were individually invited to preview the new winter collection, indulge in luxury confectionary and prosecco, and take part in wreath decorating with two of our Floral Designers, Paul and Jean.

Flor Unikon’s Autumn Decorations for Max Mara, Westbourne Grove

The brief was to create bright and cheerful arrangements to reflect the late Autumn season. In the front window we created a Autumn/Winter wreath using oak leaves to retain the Autumn theme, and using three shades of Ilex berries that show the gradual transition from the golden glow of ‘The Fall’ to the brightness of the Christmas season to come.

Along the central table we created cheerful vases of berries and apples. We also used wild greenery in order to blend in with Max Mara’s ethnic jewellery collection. Our new collection of wreaths also created a colourful foreground to the back-drop of stone coloured vases and statues.

We were particularly pleased with how well one of our Hydrangea wreaths took on the pattern of the Max Mara, Tricot Pasticcino bag.

The Max Mara mannequins this season are minimalist with just a hint of red lipstick – therefore we couldn’t resist placing one of our red apples wreaths behind this particular chic mannequin.

Max Mara Customers learn how to decorate a Flor Unikon Door Wreath.

Each customer had their own approach to decorating a wreath. Some just wanted to add a few stems of greenery to one of our pre-decorated wreaths and were overjoyed with the final result.

Others used a step by step method of placing the decorations first and then gluing them when they were satisfied with the final placement. One customer was so pleased with her wreath that she insisted on wearing her Max Mara wool broadcloth cape (purchased in-store earlier) to finish decorating it.

Wreath decoration is fun for all ages, from the very young…

…to the young at heart…

…and those folk in between.

A big thanks to  Sofia and her friendly Weekend Max Mara sales team for allowing us to be part of today’s event. We look forward to sharing future events with you all.

Luxury bouquets and vase arrangements by Flor Unikon Flowers

Flor Unikon can create the perfect luxury bouquet for that special person in your life. For both a stylish and luxurious arrangement their Floral Designers will use just a few varieties of flowers, a beautiful selection of greenery and a mixture of textures for visual interest.

You can make the recipient feel extra special by selecting their favourite flower varieties and colours. For this reason Flor Unikon’s designers always aim to source the blooms and hues of your choice.

Flor Unikon can also provide a stylish vase to accommodate your luxury bouquet. The above arrangement, a country garden selection, is contained in an organic vase to complement the rustic arrangement. Image – Craft Central, Clerkenwell.

The clear pear-shaped vase, see below, is the perfect container for taller varieties and ideal for displaying interesting stems, leaf textures and patterns. Image – Roof Gardens, Kensington.

The vase display below illustrates beautifully that ‘less is more’, meaning that with a very limited colour palette and flower varieties you can still create a very chic arrangement. The Snowberries and Ivy help to create a sense of movement.

This romantic pink and purple bouquet not only look beautiful but smells amazing too! – featuring Clematis, Hydrangeas and Wax flower, and for the ultimate aroma a few stems of Mint.

Flor Unikon’s vibrant peach and pink Rose bouquet is delicately framed with lace cut, Senecio Cineraria (Dusty Miller).

Autumn Floral Decoration with Flor Unikon Flowers- for your meetings, parties and dining events.

Autumn flower varieties and colours

As Summer moves towards Autumn the colour palette of nature gives the Floral Designer a spectrum of burnt and rust shades of orange, red, yellow and brown to work with. Flor Unikon’s floral designers love to work with the appropriate varieties and colours of the current season, e.g. Berries, Chrysanthemums, Holly, Oak leaves, Physalis (Chinese Lanterns), Sunflowers. The vase creation above was made for an event at the Goldsmith’s Centre, London.

Flor Unikon’s naturalistic approach means they will only use stems that are naturally coloured/discoloured, i.e. not sprayed artificially, and ever-greens to provide a contrast to the brighter floral hues.

Autumn Events

Flor Unikon are currently busy decorating for a series of events in both the hospitality and corporate world. Their aim, as always, is to bring life and colour to corporate meeting rooms/boardrooms and minimalist dining rooms.

Booking flowers for your event

If you are planning an event and want some advice on how to decorate the meeting/functions rooms with flowers and plants please give Flor Unikon a call on 0203 701 8774 for London and +351 910 636 518 for Portugal. Their event team will co-ordinate with the staff at your venue regarding delivery and collection. You may wish to consider the following points prior to your initial conversation:

Corporate branding – Flor Unikon will aim to match the team/company colours where possible, and use flower varieties that will enhance the product or brand.

Style – formal or relaxed?, Flor Unikon will create a bespoke arrangement that blends in well with the environment, your company image and product.

Size, location and quantity – it’s also important to consider how much free space is in the room for placing flower vases, pedestals etc.

Flor Unikon’s Studio at Craft Central – Clerkenwell, London

Flor Unikon’s new home, Studio 5 at Craft Central

Some of you who follow our regular Blog pages, Facebook and Twitter postings will know that we recently moved from our old premises in Amwell Street EC1 to a new studio at Craft Central, 21 Clerkenwell Green.

Craft Central is a series of studios and pop up spaces for new and current talent in the world of Jewellery, Stone Setting, Painting, Ceramics and general crafts.

The buzz of being amongst other designers and crafts people is very exciting for us. And luckily for us this has created a stream of new clients in the Corporate world and many bookings for our new programme of flower workshops. Pictured above, is Pasi, our leading Floral Designer, in discussion with one of our private clients.

We prepare all of our corporate and private work in our studio – here (see below) we are getting ready for a wedding that took place in London’s iconic building, The Gherkin. The flowers were wrapped for practical purposes, i.e. to protect the petals from breaking during transportation.

Our Studio is a showcase for our flowers, many are varieties that you won’t commonly find elsewhere. We arrange them creatively in vases to inspire our potential clients.

We also offer group and private workshops for hen parties, corporate staff events, and for  hobbyist and professional Florists. Pictured below, are two Public Relation employees who wanted to learn how to create floral decorations for their company’s future work events.

Flowers for your home or office can be delivered daily, weekly or as often as you like. We also hire our vases for floral displays and so all you have to do is sit back and enjoy your own bespoke creation.

If you would like to find out more about what we can offer in terms of floral design, whether its for a private event or an official function please call us on 0203 701 8774 to make an appointment.

Birthday Flowers by Flor Unikon

Flowers for birthday gifts by Flor Unikon

The tradition of celebrating birthdays is a world-wide phenomenon for both children and adults alike. Most of us love the mystery and joy of unwrapping birthday gifts but it seems that flowers are still a welcome addition to this special celebration.

Selecting the perfect birthday bouquet/arrangement from Flor Unikon

It is worth considering the taste and life style of the person you are buying flowers for. The following points may help you to order the perfect birthday bouquet:

*Each month has a flower that symbolizes the month of somebody’s birth. The recipient       will appreciate the effort you have made if you select their particular birth flower.

*Contemporary bouquets/arrangements are a good match for young adults/young at heart   and folk who love clean lines, interesting shapes and a minimalist colour palette/variety     of flowers, e.g. ideal for Architects, Fashion and Interior Designers.

*Classic floral designs are still fashionable and can be created using the favourite                     flowers/colours of the recipient, e.g. Roses are ideal as they are available in a wide palette   of colours.

*Wild/Rustic for lovers of the countryside and with a relaxed out look on life.

* Flowers with a scent can enhance the completed floral creation, e.g. Dill and Mint have        subtle but pleasant aromas that may be less allergic than the perfume of Roses and                Lillies.
