It’s beginning to look at lot like Christmas…. Southbourne Florist Clair Lythgoe brings Christmas at the Larder House…… Two 24ft beams adorned with quintessential hand made Christmas decorations….. apple slices threaded on burgundy gingham ribbon, whole fresh oranges studded with cloves, traditional candy canes tied with ribbon and giant pine cones covered in snow. A medley of traditional Christmas foliages with that gorgeous pine sent covered the entire length of the beams with the hand made decoration dangling in groups at eye level for all to admire. Their cosy Christmas garden was finished with Chritmas trees, fairy lights, carols and mulled wine….. Love Christmas…..bring it on!
Bournemouth wedding florist Clair Lythgoe…….The most exciting wedding set up so far this year at one of my favourite venues, The Larder House in Southbourne. I was beside myself when Amy & Nick approached me at the beginning of the year with their ideas for some rather unusual wedding flowers….. I just adore these and I was so excited to make them. Outside for their alfresco dining reception was the main floral event….. two 24 ft beams suspended by rope, like very large swings, dripped with a mass of gorgeous textured foliage’s and pure white flowers. The whole design created a luxurious setting for their guests to dine amongst with beer bottles dotted here and there down the centre of each long trestle table for an extra floral touch. Inside the theme was mimicked across the four rustic wooden beams greeting their guests on arrival and wetting their taste buds for the real floral bonanza outside! Thank you guys for choosing me to be your wedding florist, it was an honour. I hope you’re having a fab honeymoon in Thailand.
The Larder House in Southbourne are embracing all that good old British farmers have to offer…. I love decorating the Larder House beams. Each season brings something new. James wanted to pick fresh strawberries and make daiquiri’s for customers on the spot…. so of course we adorned the beams with lush trailing plants with ripe juicy strawberries. Bundles of dried oats and corn with the sunniest sunflowers complemented the season. The whole lot makes you smile.
The Larder House in Southbourne dons a new look for the spring…. I love a good beam change to embrace the start of a new season. Fresh zingy lime filled jars with Daffodil and Narcissi. Natural dried camomile bunches, with botanical hanging fern and succulents plants in glass globes.
Union jack themed wedding this weekend at Beaulieu Motor Museum in the New Forest. It was all a bit fun embracing the grooms love of mini’s by attaching retro badges to red and white roses with royal blue ribbon.
Stunning all white trailing brides bouquet jam packed full of quintessential English roses with the brides love of purple orchids. The bridesmaids bouquets got truly into the vibe of our national colours. Red, white & blue never looked so good.
