Sketch Becomes an Ethereal Garden for Mayfair in Bloom
Central London fills with flowers this May, with return of the Belgravia, Chelsea and Mayfair in Bloom events, which extend Chelsea Flower Show’s magic into the capital’s streets, shops and restaurants. And one world-class venue is undergoing an extensive floral makeover…
As part of Mayfair in Bloom, Sketch will transform into the Dream Garden, making the venue, which was recently named the most photogenic restaurant in the world, even more Instagrammable.
JamJar Flowers, Ricky Paul Flowers and Carly Rogers Flowers to create a series of installations based on the theme Peace.
The installations feature a functioning swing and a suspended meadow, and runs throughout the entrance hall and reception area into The Glade and the legendary Pods.
Sketch’s Dream Garden will first see guests walk through a passage of blooms by JamJar Flowers, decorated with fresh and dried daisies – a symbol of peace, innocence and purity, with a tip of a cap to the hippies of the 60s.
The installation is scented with chamomile and soundtracked with birdsong, and guest are invited to take a tranquil moment or two here and the wrought iron garden seat.
An interlinking daisy chain will then guided guests along the corridor into a clearing filled with gigantic daisies, and following this, a rope swing will hang from the ceiling in the reception area, where guests are welcome to try it out.
Designed by Ricky Paul, bright floral garlands leading up the staircase to the Pods finish the experience off and take guests to a large colourful peace sign, made from fresh flowers.
