Best of London in Bloom

Belgravia London

As we are now halfway through summer and sadly most of the beautiful flowers that adorn London’s streets have bloomed and gone, I decided to do a round up of my favourite floral displays that I have encountered these past few months. Last spring I was hellbent on finding a graduate job and between all the interviews and interview prep I didn’t get much time to go out and explore, so this year was kind of my first proper spring in London. Feel free to bookmark any of these for next year – I think the earliest ones start to be installed in March and they go all throughout spring and the beginning of summer.

Mayfair

Mayfair London

Christopher Kane, Mount St: I believe this display was actually to celebrate the release of the Beauty and the Beast film, but I’m not entirely sure. This one was up in March.

Peonies, between MOYNAT London and Delfina Delettrez, Mount St: Definitely one of my favourites from this year, these were also up in March.

Outfit of the Day

A revisit to the peonies in June – they were still up! Wearing Dreams Code bag, which you can see in more detail in my other blog post and you can shop it by clicking here.

Caviar House & Prunier, Piccadilly: Taken in May.

Mayfair London

Wild Things Flowers, Davies St: This florist always has the most beautiful displays and they even have basins of water outside with all sorts of flowers floating in them. Perfection. This was taken in June but they seem to have lovely displays all year round.

Fenwick, New Bond St: This department store seems to have an incredible display every springtime. This year they definitely jumped on the #WisteriaHysteria bandwagon! Taken in April.

Belgravia and Chelsea

Outfit of the Day

Peggy Porschen Cakes, Ebury St, Belgravia: One of the most Instagram-famous places in London and one of my favourite spots to sit with friends, catching up over a cup of coffee and a lovely lemon and raspberry cake. The above outfit details were linked in my last post about Brunch with Truly Experiences.

The above dress is from a brand called Oh My Love London and you can shop it at the Topshop website if you click here.

Chelsea London

The Ivy Chelsea Garden, Kings Rd, Chelsea: Another Instagram-famous location, these guys seem to have a new display every month or so! This one was from May.

Chelsea London

Notting Hill

Portobello Rd: I wouldn’t usually give the exact locations of people’s houses on my blog but these two are on such a famous road that if you just took a stroll along Portobello you couldn’t really miss them. These were both taken while the June roses were blooming.

Covent Garden

The above display was a rather clever move on behalf of the Covent Garden PR team. This was just one of many floral displays dotted around the area and every time I walked past there was a line of tourists waiting to take their photos there.

The pub in the photo below was just around the corner on St Martin’s Lane. Both of these shots were taken in June.

Other areas

Marylebone London

By Appointment Only Design, Chiltern St, Marylebone: This beautiful boutique was absolutely covered in blooms for a few weeks in March.

St Paul's Cathedral London

St Paul’s Cathedral: Every year if you head to this corner of St Paul’s in June you will find a fence covered in the most beautiful roses. I love the juxtaposition of the flowers against such magnificent architecture.
