It’s a wonderful week to be in Chelsea; everywhere you look shop windows are bursting with colour in celebration of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. Along the famous Kings Road, flowers of every shape and size adorn doorways, bringing windows and even pavements alive. We’re also paying homage to this prestigious event at our flagship Chelsea showroom with a fantastic window display that features a multitude of faux flowers.
Whether it’s a vase of flowers on a kitchen window sill, a grand dining table centrepiece or a small posy beside the bed, beautiful flowers add personality and another layer of colour to a scheme. But, to fill your house with fresh flowers all year round can take a lot of work, not to mention quite a lot of money (or a big cutting garden!) so instead, let us introduce you to the wonderful world of faux flowers.
We could wax lyrical about all the reasons why faux flowers are better than real ones, but instead why not see for yourself at one of our fantastic in-store flower shops. When it comes to choosing stems for your arrangement, you’ll be spoilt for choice; we have over 80 varieties and introduce new ones every season. The best thing about faux flowers is that you’re not restricted by the season, so if you want Sweet Peas in November or Hydrangeas in February, your wish is easily granted.
Not all of us feel au fait with flower arranging, so if you’re a bit unsure about what flower combinations will work together, why not book a free appointment at our Chelsea shop where can create a bespoke arrangement for you? Or alternatively, be a little sneaky and choose a few of our pre-tied bunches:
A close relation of the buttercup, our pretty bunch of Ranunculus Flowers look like they've been picked straight from a country meadow.
Bright, colourful flowers with an abundance of petals, a bunch or two of our Faux Dahlias would look very effective in a simple glass vase.
Classic, romantic and adored by all, you can never go wrong with an arrangement of Roses in deep red and soft cream.
Enjoy towering spires of delphiniums all year round; simply place them in a tall vase in a hallway or living room where they can be enjoyed by everyone.
So, which is your favourite bunch from our selection? Pop over to our facebook page to see if your choice will be one of the winners of our faux flower awards, ‘The Bloomies’.
