Floral decoration can enhance or overwhelm the ambience of one’s surroundings. For example, we were briefed to decorate a dinner party setting where the host requested just a few secondary colours, toned with white to avoid clashing with the bold patterns that decorated the dining room.
Purple and white sweet peas were used to decorate the dinner tables, low level of course for social ease.
The corner tables had taller arrangements of agapanthus, mixed with hydrangeas and sweet peas, to accentuate the full height of the room.
The decorative mantlepiece was brought further to life by a pretty pink, purple and white arrangement of sweet peas, stretching the length of the mantle and cascading down towards the marble fire-place.
