Designs by The Flower Appreciation Society for British Flowers Week Day 4

Welcome to Day Four of British Flowers Week 2016 (13-19 June), the fourth year of the industry-wide, nationwide campaign in support of British cut flowers, founded and organised by New Covent Garden Flower Market. The hashtag #BritishFlowersWeek has now leapt past last year's Twitter reach to 6.8 million and achieved a record Instagram reach of 2.59 million. Today, we welcome the wonderful Anna Day and Ellie Jauncey of The Flower Appreciation Society.

The dream duo at The Flower Appreciation Society clearly relish the freedom of working with the wilder, more natural forms of British-grown foliage and flowers. Each of their British Flowers Week designs is a true celebration of the abundance of British cut foliage and flowers in all their myriad forms.

They will be showcasing their designs using the best of British foliage from our heroes on Foliage Row. British-grown foliage forms the backbone of a design, gives it movement and texture, and truly reflects the seasons - and it can be beautiful.

BRITISH FLOWERS WEEK DESIGNS BY ANNA DAY AND ELLIE JAUNCER, THE FLOWER APPRECIATION SOCIETY

Anna and Ellie have created three floral designs including British-grown foliage exclusively for British Flowers Week.

 

A MANTLEPIECE ON THE MOVE

A joyful, effusive celebration of British flowers, this mantelpiece design in romantic shades of white and purples is a mass of flowers amidst a structure of gorgeous foliages. Stems of viburnum opulus, mint, white leaf, beech, willow, privet, cow parsley, birch and wild rose frame the tapestry of alliums, cornflowers, fritillaries, nepeta, sweet rocket, orlaya grandiflora, verbascum, delphiniums, irises, cow parsley and sweet peas.

 

 

 

FESTIVE FLORALS

Celebration is in the air with this floral crown of summer favourites, sweet peas and peonies, interspersed with senecio, viburnum plicatum, oregano and a sprig of fresh mint.

 

 

 

A BUNCH OF BRITISH

The sights and scents of the British summer come together in this natural, free, open bouquet bursting with birch, white leaf, cow parsley, ivy, mint, flowering viburnum, senecio, trailing jasmine, grasses, campion, peonies, orlaya grandiflora sweet rocket, nepeta and sweet peas.
