I was asked to join in with British Flowers Week by the lovely people at Four Walls, a new interiors inspiration site set up by Ocean Finance. On Four Walls you will find amazing tips and inspiration to create a stylish home, with helpful advice, design and decor ideas to suit every budget.
British Flowers Week is celebrated from 13-19th June and is a national celebration of seasonal, locally-grown flowers and is bringing British cut flowers back into British homes! You only have to look on Instagram to see how British home-grown flowers are having their moment, with thousands of stylish images of seasonal flowers in bloom, from peonies to wisteria - the British flower is having a moment! British flowers have charm, grace, scents and sustainability.
Peonies are one of my all-time favourite flowers, they remind me of my wedding day where I had bouquets of seasonal flowers which we arranged ourselves with an assortment of peonies, stocks, roses, sweet williams and foraged flowers. Peonies are glamorous and beautiful and add pretty colour to a room.
This beautiful bloom is from Bloom & Wild - I absolutely LOVE Bloom & Wild flowers! If you haven't heard of them before they are an online florist that have transformed the art of sending flowers, their bouquets are so stylish, seasonal and on-trend, and are delivered in a box that fits through your letterbox. There is nothing like getting home to find a box of gorgeous flowers waiting for you on your doormat!
This bouquet is called The Imogen and contains white lilies, monte azzuro alstroemerias, stocks and lisianthus, they describe it as looking like a midsummer nights sky!
I hope you like my selection of flowers and feel inspired to go and treat yourself to a bouquet of gorgeous British flowers this weekend. Be creative with how you display them to change the style, try glass jars or jugs as an alternative vase, or single stems in small vases looks simple and elegant. Your options are endless but whatever you can guarantee they will look and smell beautiful.
