Earlier this month we were asked by Leighton House Museum to collaborate with caterers By Word of Mouth to set a table fit for a decadent private dining event in their dazzling Narcissus Room. Originally constructed in 1877 the room features gilded ceilings and walls lined with stunning peacock blue tiles by the ceramic artist William De Morgan – it really is a show stopping place for a party.
We decided that white flowers would complement the room best and accessorized them with stainless steel, crystal clear and mirrored glass column vases in silver and rose gold.
Topping the vases were fragranced and frothy arrangements of hyacinths, hydrangea, ranunculus, lisianthus, nerines, dendrobium and gold-centred Phalaenopsis orchids, arranged in a compact and uneven style for a textured and luxurious feel. Little ferns gave airy movement and a nod to the palms that originally graced the room. Lots of glass candlesticks and gold nightlights finished the look. We can’t get enough of candlelight!
We love working at historical venues and the juxtaposition of modern styling with traditional surroundings and look forward to many more beautiful events at Leighton House Museum.
