As the year draws to a close, we’ve taken a moment to step back and reflect on some truly fabulous floral highlights. From extolling our love of flowers all around the globe to creating designs for some seriously glitzy events, it’s been a busy and flower-filled year for Team McQueens. We can’t wait to share […]
Over the last 30 years or so, McQueens have had the honour of creating jaw-dropping flowers for some truly show-stopping events. On Sunday 18 November, we had a feeling that we were about to be part of something particularly special, though. Our talented team of florists gathered at the entrance to the Theatre Royal Drury […]

The first incarnation of Vogue was born in 1892 by American entrepreneur, Arthur Baldwin Turner. The magazine set out to cater for both men and women with fashion, sport and social affairs of the time, focusing on the delightful lives of the upper middle classes in New York, and their exclusive circles. British Vogue was first […]
There can be no more an honour or an accolade than being commissioned by a happy couple to be their designated florist of choice for a wedding or civil ceremony. We, florists, are lucky to have a window into every celebration in life and there can be no more a jolly affair than the union of […]
We love creating flowers for parties and the options for dressing a dining table are endless. Candelabra makes for an impactful option that is a tried and tested design – a firm favourite with us, and a fantastic solution for numerous occasions. Candelabra are a classic statement that works particularly well in large ballroom areas with high ceilings […]
For displaying your flowers, it doesn’t come more classic than an urn. Depicted in art throughout history, it remains a trusted floral statement that can be called upon to add a touch of class to any party or event. A skip through the aisles of our warehouse at McQueens HQ in Bethnal Green will reveal a […]
The Berkeley Hotel is celebrating Belgravia in Bloom this week as the country rejoices in the world’s most famous flower extravaganza, The RHS Chelsea Flower Show. The theme for this year’s Belgravia in Bloom is children’s stories, which soon got Team McQueens’ creative juices flowing! After some careful deliberation and a chocolate biscuit or two, we decided to head on down the yellow brick road with our own homage to L. Frank Baum’s classic children’s tale, The Wizard of Oz.
Update: Since publication, we are delighted to announce that our flowery homage to The Wizard of Oz won top prize in the Belgravia in Bloom awards! Congratulations to our fabulous team of McQueens florists for creating yet another, magical, award-winning deign.

One of life’s greatest pleasures is to gather a group of friends and loved ones around a table for good food, great conversation and gales of laughter – and never has that been more important than in our world today. While schedules are fit to burst thanks to working commitments and activities, we’re so often left […]

To coincide with Mother’s Day, Team McQueens created a gorgeous floral statement, dressing their windows with masses of roses, hydrangea, carnations and eustoma in colours to reflect their latest collections. The windows at the store on Bond […]
