Working at The RHS, Chelsea Flower Show, Aegon Championships, Royal Ascot and Wimbledon, they put the floral designs on the central stage, going above and beyond to deliver stand-out spectacles. (Lavender Green Flowers place a significant amount of emphasis on the whole picture, considering and often advising on every other element of an event that becomes important, such as lighting, furniture and even food.) From the initial brief and design process through to the creation and subsequent delivery, clients know that they can rely on Lavender Green Flowers’ highly inventive, hard-working and experienced team. As is often the case, nothing is ever out-sourced meaning installations are slick and efficient. The designers, florists and installers are all part of the Lavender Green Flowers’ family, and they therefore share the same passion and enthusiasm for the perfect execution of every job. Barnes says, “I was not interested in learning how to be a florist. I was interested in learning how to sell amazing flowers and how to create breath-taking flower displays. I have always wanted to be the very best I can possibly be at whatever I do, and so failure was not an option. It is incredible to make money out of a low margin product. You need the tenacity of a limpet, self-belief, a great team of kindred spirits and to enjoy the experience… plus an awful lot of luck!”...
