Styling inspiration: 11 of the best Instagram snaps from British Flowers Week
We've been loving our Instagram feed during British Flowers Week, an annual campaign held in London's Covent Garden to champion British flower suppliers. Homegrown blooms are a great decor choice if you want to cut down on your carbon footprint and support a local business, while also having that freshness factor. Here's a round-up of some of our favourite snaps shared this week.
Pictures: Amazing real flower wedding dress made for the Chelsea Flower Show 2016!
The ultimate wedding flower inspiration event of the year is just around the corner and we can't wait to see what floral wonders the green-fingered gurus come up with this time. But to get you in the mood we thought we'd share the most wedding-worthy design of all - a dress made entirely of real flowers commissioned to celebrate the start of the show. The colourful design was created by celebrity florist Larry Walshe using over 2000 blooms including Peruvian fern, Spray Roses, Achillea, Alstroemeria, Dahlia and Gloriosa. The RHS Chelsea Flower Show opens on 24th May 2016. Larry will be creating another spectacular design, which will be revealed in award-winning garden designer, Cleve West’s woodland themed show garden. Love this dress?
