Hampton Court ‘Florimania’

Following on from last week’s post we are delighted to share with you a selection of photographs of the completed arrangements from last weekend’s ‘Florimania’ at Hampton Court Palace.

With the event entitled ‘ Flowers from around the world: exploring the continents, each of the arrangements represented either a picture on display in Hampton Court Palace or a country of the world.

Following the event, we received the following email from Jane Rickard of Surrey NAFAS:

“The flowers are exceptional and are standing up really well. 

 The feedback from the public over the last 2 days has been great.  Many thinking it was the best yet!!!!  Of course, that is largely due to the quality of the flowers.  As usual – all went smoothly and you handled the whole day marvellously!!

 Thank you once again for all your help and patience with us and the good organisation of our flowers on conditioning day.”

Hampton Court ‘Florimania’

Yesterday we made our now annual trip to Hampton Court Palace to deliver the flowers for their ‘Florimania’ event this coming weekend

It was our absolute pleasure to, once again, be working with Jane Rickard and her team of flower arrangers from Surrey NAFAS

The theme for this years’ event is “Flowers from around the world: exploring the continents” so a vast array of flowers were chosen by the arrangers including the largest quantity of tropical flowers we have ever supplied

The photographs below were taken during the handout and conditioning of the flowers and we look forward to sharing photos of the finished arrangements soon

 

‘Florimania’ at Hampton Court Palace

Nursery Fresh is delighted to have once again worked with Jane Rickard and the flower arrangers of Surrey NAFAS in supplying the flowers for ‘Florimania’ at Hampton court Palace this weekend.

This year’s event entitled “Ladies with Flowers” will include floral displays and flower arranging demonstrations inspired by some of the most notable garden-loving Queens from Queen Mary II and her collection of exotic plants at Hampton Court Palace to Queen Charlotte at Kew Gardens.

Below are a few photos taken during the flowers sorting and delivery stages and we hope to post photos of the finished results soon.

Following our delivery of all the plant material earlier in the week it was lovely to receive the following email from Jane Rickard

“Just to say a big thank you for the simply gorgeous selection of flowers that you delivered to us today.  Really fabulous and as well organised as usual.

 It is always a pleasure to work with you all.

 Love

Jane x”

 

HAMPTON COURT ‘FLORIMANIA’ 2016

It has, once again, been our pleasure to work with the Surrey Area of NAFAS in supplying the flowers for ‘Florimania’ 2016 which takes place at Hampton Court Palace this weekend.

During the weeks leading up to the event, we work with Jane Rickard of Surrey NAFAS in collating the orders which are then placed with our suppliers for delivery to us the day before they are delivered to Hampton Court. We then have a busy day sorting all the flowers into individual orders which are then transported to the Palace early in the morning, ready for distribution to the Flower Arrangers.

Below are just a few photographs taken during the delivery and distribution of the flowers and we hope to post some more of the finished displays in due course

 

Hampton Court ‘Florimania’ 2015

Sally was delighted to visit Hampton Court Palace on Saturday afternoon to view the exhibits created by the very talented members of Surrey Area of NAFAS for ‘Florimania 2015. All the arrangements were made using plant material supplied by Nursery Fresh with each one depicting a different era of flower arranging from the past five centuries. As you will see from the photographs below each one was stunning and it was a privilege to view such creative work. A big thank you to Hampton Court and all those involved.

Hampton Court ‘Florimania’ 2015

We always know that Spring is on its’ way when we are asked to supply the flowers for ‘Florimania’ at Hampton Court Palace. This year’s event showcases the way in which flower displays have changed over the past five centuries to tie in with the fact that the Palace is 500 years old this year.

It is such a pleasure working with Jane Rickard and the Surrey Area of NAFAS in supplying all the plant material required for the flower arrangers to create their arrangements in the stunning setting of this beautiful Palace.

Having met with all the flower arrangers, Jane Rickard, sends the orders into us which are then collated and sent to our suppliers. On receipt by us the flowers are then sorted into individual orders ready for transportation to Hampton Court Palace early in the morning. Once at the Palace the buckets are arranged into order of collection times ready for the arrival of the flower arrangers who are then able to prepare their flowers ready for staging day. This is a seamless process which we have perfected over many years of involvement in such events.

We have today received this lovely email from Jane Rickard which we are delighted to share with you –

Hello Girls

Just to say thank you all so much for the beautiful flowers that you delivered yesterday to Hampton Court Palace for Florimania.

 As usual the quality is excellent and everything was again, so well organised.

 Some of your flower choices are just beautiful – the Blueberry and Capuccino roses are gorgeous.

 Tomorrow we shall have the pleasure of arranging them all and I am confident that, as usual, they will stand up well for the weekend.

With many thanks to you all again – I so enjoy working with you.

Love

Jane

In return, we would like to thank Jane, Surrey Area of NAFAS and all those involved with ‘Florimania’ at Hampton Court Palace for entrusting us with their order and we look forward to working with them all again.

If you wish to visit ‘Florimania’ it takes place at Hampton Court Palace from Friday 13th – Sunday 15th March and is an ideal Mother’s Day treat. Not only will you have the opportunity to see stunning flower displays but there will also be flower demonstrations plus the chance to visit the rest of the Palace and its beautiful grounds.

Below are some photographs taken during the flower sorting and then the handout at Hampton Court Palace
