Roses, clematis, nigella, veronica and hypericum berries in shades of pink, blue and purple look wonderful combined with creamy lisianthus buds, natural wood and lichens. Lest anyone should think I have the talent to have done this, I’ll make it clear that it’s a detail from a floral design by Eleanor Griffiths that I admired at last year’s Southport Flower Show.
It was one of several chair installations as the name ‘Sitting Pretty’ implies. Sadly I don’t have a picture of the whole design to show you, just a slightly wider shot showing more of the textures of the wood and the weave. My justification is that being let loose in a Floral Art Marquee always gets me a little over excited.

I’m glad you liked it.
“Sitting Pretty”! What a clever motif. And what a lovely palette! This may be the first chair ever that I’d rather look at than sit on.
There were a few others you’d have been wary about too. 🙂
this is a beautiful setting
The flowers were really fresh too.
It was nice to see the lichens being used and the herbaceous clematis.
Lovely – and you at least have the talent to photograph it well
That is some arrangement!
It’s a great show for floristry.
What a gorgeous display of color and texture. Lovely!
The softness of the petals was emphasised by the woody bits.
They’re lovely colours.
