Amazing things you can do with flowers & foliage

floral design for photography, TV and filmWe are floral experts, & we can find a solution to your requirements. Our shop window always has a small installation. The theme this year has been the sky – with clouds made of cotton wool, falling ‘snow’ real cotton in the winter months, stars & a ‘planet’ of dried hydrangea heads.

Many years ago, I was asked by a photographer to create a cornfield in a photographic studio in Battersea. As you can see from the photo, it was very successful. The original shoot was in Iceland, outdoors, & we had to recreate it.

A large print made up the background. I then covered the floorspace with undulating chicken wire & floral foam. I lay hay all over it, then made tufts of wheat to add height. The wheat & hay came from a local farm. a very interesting project!
