On this trip to Paris, one of the first places I returned to was the Hotel George V, so I could see what wonderful flower displays florist Jeff Leatham had again created for the hotel.
Last year, the flowers were a mass of blue orchids, delphiniums and hydrangeas with a touch of red dahlias and a separate, wonderful display of pink peonies and roses.
This year, as you entered the hotel, a central display of blue orchids and yellow calla lilies set the tone.
Behind this, on either side of the central display, were matching canopy’s of blue orchids hung from the ceiling, their roots creating an intricate cover over bunches of yellow roses and yellow calla lilies inverted in tall glass vases.
At one end of the central passage, blue orchids and green hydrangeas with a few yellow cannas at the base created a centre piece.
Complementing the beautiful tapestry at the entrance to the restaurant, hydrangeas and canna lilies once again shone.
Outside in the courtyard, blue orchids hung from their heads creating another stunning canopy.
Beautiful flower arrangements in hotel foyers are not uncommon, but for me, no one does it better than the Hotel George V in Paris.
Where do you see your favourite flower displays?
