Coronation Eve Dinner, Claridge’s 


As guests arrived at the event, they were met with a showstopping replica of the St. Edward's Crown, which would be used in the coronation of King Charles the following day. This crown, made using the official coronation logo and traditional flowers associated with the event, served as a beautiful and symbolic representation of the occasion. Constructed from willow and adorned with seasonal flowers and British foliage, the design drew inspiration from British folklore and symbolized Spring and rebirth. The crown featured emblematic flowers such as Daffodils, Thistle, red Roses, and Clover, as well as Lily of the Valley, Rosemary, and other wildflower plants. Positioned on a circular bar, the crown served as a stunning centrepiece for guests to admire during the drinks reception, creating a sense of awe and reverence as they mingled and enjoyed the festivities. 

The dinner was a tribute to Claridge's Hotel's rich history and Art Deco style. We honoured their London heritage by incorporating their traditional logo and iconic peppermint green colour into our designs. Our aim was to create a sleek and striking aesthetic that highlighted each flower individually while upholding the elegance and sophistication of Claridge's. To achieve this, we utilized elegant crystal candelabras with custom champagne-coloured candles to line the length of the mirror-topped table. Tall glass cylinders filled with mass blooms in clean lines formed an enchanting floral canopy overhead. Our floral selection included stunning coral Peonies, fragrant coral and lilac Sweet Peas, soft pink Callas, coral Anthuriums, soft pink Phalaenopsis Orchids, and tall lilac Delphiniums. Striking coral and blue taper candles added a touch of elegance and colour throughout the room. Delicate Rose petals and exquisite Vanda orchids provided a graceful finishing touch along the table.
