- June 17, 2016
Welcome to Day Five of British Flowers Week 2016 (13-19 June), the hashtag #BritishFlowersWeek has now reached a staggering 7.56 million people on Twitter and achieved a record Instagram reach of 2.72 million. Today, Friday 17 June, we are delighted to reveal the British alstroemeria designs by Rob van Helden of Rob van Helden Floral Design, and event florist extraordinaire.
It’s the fourth year of the industry-wide, nationwide campaign in support of British cut flowers, founded and organised by New Covent Garden Flower Market.
BRITISH FLOWERS WEEK DESIGNS BY ROB VAN HELDEN
A Dutchman abroad, Rob has created three floral designs with British-grown alstroemeria exclusively for British Flowers Week.
A lone stone vase of British-grown red and pink alstroemeria sits ready to adorn a smart entrance hall or elegant office foyer.
Alstroemeria gets a touch of urban glamour in this striking massed umbrella arrangement of elegant white alstroemeria in a magnificent silver urn.
THE ALSTROEMERIA COLLECTION
Grouped as a collection, bunches of alstroemeria assemble in pretty little ceramic vases to dress dinner party, given light from a candelabra.
Whilst this is the last day of the Flower Market Photoshoot, it's by no means the end of British Flowers Week. Visit Flowers from the Farm’s Gold Award-winning stand at BBC Gardeners’ World Live, or take part in workshops, talks and community events around the country.
