Visiting the Chelsea Flower Show for the first time this year was absolutely magnificent experience – the amazing gardens, glorious flowers and the beautiful pop of colours everywhere were inspirational.
I was getting inspiration from everything for a future garden or colour combinations for styling my looks. I shared all my favourite moments on SnapChat and Instagram, which received a fantastic response from viewers asking about the event and saying how much they enjoyed seeing all the glamorous flowers.
We then had a lovely dinner in the evening at the Fortnum & Mason Marquee at the Chelsea Flower Show – which was so beautifully decorated with flowers and a great Jazz Band entertainment, the food also had edible flowers and pretty deserts to look at and taste.
I dressed in a floral style to suit the occasion and received plenty of compliments – either my skirt, top or shoes and mostly the hat, two ladies came up to me and said: ” We just wanted to let you know that we love your hat and think it is as pretty as the flowers here” (such a lovely compliment).
The Dubai inspired, Beauty of Islam garden designed by Kamelia Bin Zaal was her first garden and she won a Silver Prize.
The Tropical Garden was my favourite – I just loved the dramatic waterfall.
James Parker himself and his wonderful sculptures – I loved the peace sign and the delicious apple below.
The adorable Bonsai Japanese little trees..
Everything smelled so amazing..
Peonies have been one of my favourite flowers since I had the beautiful white peonies as my wedding bouquet.
This vibrant Peony is called the ‘Red Charm’
Orchids are wonderful flowers to have – they grow every season and don’t need much water and last forever! I have had my Orchids for 5 years.
The food was delicious and beautifully displayed – a very British summer feeling at the Fortnum & Mason restaurant.
