I love flowers!
In Paris, the best place to see the most amazing flower arrangements is the Hotel George V in Avenue George V. It’s also a great excuse to stop by for their fabulous afternoon tea or even a cocktail.

From the minute you walk into the foyer of the hotel, these floral masterpieces, often of a single colour, invade the senses.

Jeff Leatham is the florist extradordinaire who makes all the decisions regarding the arrangements.
On this trip, bunches of blue hydrangeas, orchids and delphiniums were balanced on the edge of tall vases.
Red dahlias were used sparingly for contrast.

Just to break this, a table with a wonderful mix of pink peonies was in the passage.
