Rhapsody in Blue

Back in February we blogged about the Flowers we supplied for one of the stands at The Designer Wedding Show; The Dairy at Waddesdon Manor. We were delighted then to be asked to create the arrangements for a party last week at Waddesdon, hosted by Lord Rothschild. The Dairy originally housed Waddesdon's prize winning cows but is now the perfect venue for a party or wedding. With a terrace magically positioned next to a beautiful lake, this really is the most perfect place to get married. For last weeks party, which included a drinks reception and formal dinner, blue was the order of the day. We filled the enormous classical urn in the conservatory with hydrangeas, delphiniums, molucella, palms and ivy trails and surounded the base with it's very own garland. Window sills were dressed with cube vases filled with an assortment of blue flowers including, hydrangeas, anemones and Cornish blue bells. For a finishing touch we added storm lanterns to give atmosphere as the sun went down on what was a glorious spring day.
