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.
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.

Caviar House & Prunier, Piccadilly: Taken in May.
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
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 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.
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.
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.
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: 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.
