  • Endurance Races with Quintessentially

  • The Event

    Decorating the Royal Kingdom of Bahrain enclosure for the Royal Windsor International endurance races at Windsor Park with Quintessentially Events was a great start to the summer.

    The Flowers

    The enclosure was split up into different rooms each with a slightly different style but the overall theme throughout the space was pastel, seasonal and opulent! Huge focal displays filled with flowers such as Hydrangeas, Roses, Delphinium and Stocks were placed throughout the enclosure in shades of pale pink, peach, white and green as well as smaller designs placed on tables. The smaller designs filled with scented flowers including Sweet Peas, Roses and Stock were placed in vintage cut glass for an extra special touch. Hedges of Hydrangea plants hung from the edge of the terrace.

  • Inspiration

    The team at Quintessentially had an exact vision of what they wanted to create, stunningly breath-taking designs showing off traditional English flowers at their best even if we were battling with the heat on the hottest day of the year!

    Favourite Feature

    The long table runner of flowers placed in the King’s dining room. Sweet peas, Roses and Stocks looked stunning against the gold table cloths and cut glass tableware perfect for Royalty.

  • Create

  • The Event

    Create’s Annual Venues dinner this year was held at the stunning Cutty Sark, showcasing their work to 40 of London’s top venues and over 150 people.

    The Flowers

    We were delighted when we received the call from Create to design flowers for their legendary Annual Venues dinner and I think you will agree they looked amazing! Runners of beautiful seasonal Ranunculus were placed along each table for a bold splash of colour and large opulent focal displays ran right along the helm of the ship each in a different colour creating a striking ombre effect when you entered the space.

  • Inspiration

    Working closely with the Create team, we designed the table flowers to have a strong modern spring feel with on trend ombre elements. Everything on the tables was simple and clear so getting the colours right for each design was really important, we took inspiration from the flower of the moment Ranunculus and ordered them in every variety possible!

    Favourite Feature

    The ombre focal designs running under the ship were a real talking point.  Using beautiful Ranunculas at the height of their season in such vivid colours made the evening really special.

  • A Summer Showcase

  • The Event

    A summer showcase at Merchant Taylor’s Halls - a beautiful livery hall hidden behind the Bank of England. The party included drinks in the courtyard garden followed by a formal reception in the Drawing Room.

    The Flowers

    We chose the very finest seasonal flowers in an array of bright candy colours including hydrangeas, roses, scabious, spray roses, black berries, alliums, nigella and phlox.

  • Inspiration

    The Dining Room has the most beautiful wallpaper we’ve ever seen and inspired the key colours in our floral decoration. Strong sugar-candy pastel colours and equally vibrant vases were the order of the day and worked brilliantly in the courtyard garden and in the Drawing Room.

    Favourite Feature

    The table centres created by Fiona were unbelievably beautiful and we loved the quirky look created by the fluorescent pastel bud vases.

  • Launch Party at BAFTA, 195 Piccadilly

  • The Event

    A celebration of the Hayford and Rhodes new website. We designed the flowers, we organised the event and we can’t wait to do it again.  Special thanks to our sponsors BAFTA 195 Piccadilly, Drinks Fusion, Fisher Productions, Enterprise PlantsVintageStyleHire, The Powderpuff Girls, Rosalind Miller Cakes and Jones

    The Flowers

    After such a long winter we wanted to show London that Summer was finally here.  Flowers included the long-awaited Peony! (It’s great to have you back) Hydrangea, Roses, Poppies, Ranunculus and Asclepias.

  • Inspiration

    Inspiration from the event stemmed from the Spring/Summer 2013 catwalk shows.  The colours were warm peaches and corals and vivid greens with luxurious touches of hot pink.

    Favourite Feature

    Where do we start?  Everything about this event was spectacular. The huge dome urn arrangement in the middle of the room, the flowers that grew wildly from the coffee tables or the wall installation of plants and flower heads? We’ll leave it with you to decide!

  • Strictly SW7 at The Science Museum

  • The Event

    The Science Museum, Natural History Museum and the V&A joined forces in November to host the return of the celebrated showcase event Strictly SW7.

    The Flowers

    The Science Museum invited Hayford & Rhodes to dazzle guests with a showcase of contemporary floral displays. Working with an assortment of hot pink flowers including gladioli, roses, stock, anemones and nerimes our events team created a breath-taking 50ft table landscape of flowers.

  • Inspiration

    Working closely with the talented production company Events TSL we focused on a vibrant colour scheme of hot pink, purple and blue.

    Favourite Feature

    The table landscape received huge compliments, but our favourite for the night had to be the two large focal displays at the entrance. We dressed the plinths with a mosaic of fresh flowers which took hours to complete and looked stunning. Watch out for this trend in 2013.

  • 1920s Glamour

  • The Event

    An intimate members party for twenty-four guests, including drinks and canapés in The Gallery followed by an evening meal in The Boardroom. Our client wanted to create a dream-like décor with a subtle 1920’s feel.

    Event Flowers

    To contrast with the pale green walls we opted for Coral Peonies, Miss Piggy Roses, Sweet Avalanche Roses, Peach Avalanche Roses, Muscari, Sweet Peas, Viburnum, Larkspur and Hydrangea. The table flowers were arranged in low vases to allow for easy conversation, but we created a landscape of vases on either side of the room creating an intimate atmosphere.

  • Inspiration

    We took inspiration from the classic interior decoration and the gold colouring associated with BAFTA. We opted for bright clashing flowers, masses of crystal vases, tall cut glass candle sticks and fine gold detailing on the glasses and charger plates.

    Favourite Feature

    “Our guests literally gasped when they entered the room, it was like being on a movie set! The flowers looked absolutely spectacular and created such an amazing atmosphere. Thank you so much for all your hard work.”
