Watch out Chelsea Flower Show, there’s a new horticultural event in town. Mayfair Flower Show will be hosted by Sketch for the second year running and we’ve got a feeling it’ll be giving Chelsea a run for their money.
Sketch’s own rendition of one of London’s favourite events will be putting a new spin on things and transforming No.9 Conduit Street for the week. So we’ve got the location covered, but what about the most important part – the florists. Not to worry, Sketch will be playing host to 5 exhibitions from London’s top floral experts with different themes throughout the venue – everywhere from the loos to the stairs.
Let us break it down for you. The local florists exhibiting will be Rebel Rebel, Tony Marklew, Carly Rogers, Figa and Co and JamJar all drawing inspiration from our very own British landscape – could we get anymore patriotic? JamJar will be channelling their inner country fair complete with a maypole whilst Tony Marklew will be paying homage to No.9’s previous resident, the House of Dior (not exactly British but we’ll allow it). Carly Rogers will be making sure every nook and cranny is covered on the outside, whilst Rebel Rebel transforms the Lecture Room and Library and Figa & Co will be taking care of the East Bar.
As if that wasn’t enough for hay fever sufferers, French perfume house Diptyque will be providing even more scents with their signature Cypres blend. As if we need any excuse for a cocktail, Sketch will be complimenting this with a gin-based concoction inspired by the fragrance. There will also be bespoke headpieces from award winning milliner, Piers Atkinson, exhibited before they are available for sale at the end of the show.
The Mayfair Flower Show at Sketch will run until 29th May
