It has been nearly a month!
It has been nearly a month since Square Meal Venues + Events Live! ( Official site ) Did you manage to make it down to Old Billingsgate to check out our poodles? It was a wonderful show this year with lots of people to meet. Thanks to all that came to see us, we met some fabulous people who we hope to be working with in the future!
Our stand was quite hard to miss… The understated floral poodles made another appearance this year, this time with a pink rinse. We wanted to focus them more towards the event sector feeling they would make an incredible impact at the entrance to a grand venue!
Poodles: 200 Hydrangeas, 800 roses and 2500 carnations
A total of 200 Hydrangeas, 800 roses and 2500 carnations made up the bases and the bodies of the perfectly pink poodles. We were so happy that they lasted the full three days and looked set to last longer if necessary!
2 days, 5 florists
It took 5 of our fabulous florists 2 days to create the stand for the show. We decided to make most of it on site to ensure that the poodles weren’t crushed in transit. However they can be wrapped up and driven fairly easily to events around the country!
Did you notice the sea lion in the entrance?
Did you notice the sea lion in the entrance? He was ours also… We took the Hamptons Beach Party theme that Square Meal had come up with for their branding and wanted to do something a little fun! He went wonderfully with the fabulous balloons from balloon queens Bubblegum balloons.
The frame behind him is a portable structure that can be used at weddings or events. It can be used to create a wonderful frame for pictures of guests and can be dressed in any theme, colour or taste. This time we tied frothy pampas grass up the sides and placed rose and hydrangea filled planters along the bottom.
You can see it in another form here!
We had some wonderful feedback on our floral ice cream cones too! We used a variety of different shades of hydrangea to create a strawberry and vanilla ice cream along with red berries to create a strawberry sauce effect.
Have a great day!
