Mulberry: Love to All Mothers

We loved collaborating with Mulberry last week for a timely project at their Bond Street and Covent Garden stores in central London. 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 […]

Our Top Tips on Dressing the Christmas Tree

Over the past 25 years, we have had the pleasure of dressing the trees at some of the finest of London’s hotels, including The Berkeley, The Connaught, and the iconic Claridge’s Christmas foyer. From whopping Noble firs and miniature potted picea, to bespoke birch installations and intricate ‘invisible’ designs — created by suspending delicate clusters […]

Rajesh was the photographer for the day but also liaised with  McQueens to organise the wedding bouquet on Caitlin’s behalf. “Alex and I are from Oklahoma City, USA and found ourselves in need of a Photographer in London after we decided to elope.

McQueens 25: What A Party!

A huge thank you to everyone who came to our party last night to celebrate with us for our 25th year anniversary. It was such a special night and one that we will always remember. Here’s to the next 25 years!                             

Celebration Flowers at Claridge’s

We loved installing an elaborate table, with some of our favourite flowers at Claridge’s in Mayfair. A seasonal combination of hydrangea, roses, peonies, carnations and forget-me-not created the most wonderful impression for guests as they arrived. The effect was completed with tall vases, candelabra, tea cups and plenty of candle light for added sparkle.     […]

Vanity Fair Cannes Party

One of the wonderful joys of our work as florists is the opportunity to travel, and to create designs in some amazing locations around the world. So we were very excited to be heading off to the Côte d’Azur to install flowers for the Vanity Fair Cannes party at Hotel du Cap Eden Roc, the […]

Seasonal Impact

We loved creating flowers for Guy and Damian’s civil ceremony at Banking Hall in March 2016. It’s a wonderful Grade II listed hall which was designed in the 1930s and we relished the opportunity to transform the space with a simple selection of seasonal flowers including masses of forsythia and clusters of sunny narcissi. The images by […]

Blossom City Launch Party

We were very excited when the idea to host a party at McQueens HQ to celebrate D&D London’s #BlossomCity campaign was first mentioned. Yes, this was a genius suggestion that celebrates all that is wonderful about the spring, right here in the heart of trendy Bethnal Green. Exciting floral-inspired dishes, cocktails and weekly flower installations have been created […]

Boodles: 50 Shades of Glamour

We always adore creating flowers for events but there are are some jobs that remind us why we chose to be florists. This recent commission by Boodles to create an elaborate table installation for their press day was one such occasion.

The table installation featured masses of our favourite flowers created ombre-style with shades delicately blending from white and green through pastels of cream, peach and pink into delicate lilac and gentle blue. We used hydrangea, roses, sweet pea, peonies, carnations and guelder rose carefully grouped together in a sweep of graduated colour. The flowers created a magnificent backdrop for a collection of the most remarkable jewellery that we have ever seen, and the scent in the room was quite exquisite. 

Boodles were established over two centuries ago and champion all that is best in Great British jewellery craftsmanship and design. That’s what made this such a wonderful opportunity; to work with a brand with a rich heritage and dedication to excellence. We are enormously proud of this association,  and we think the results speak for themselves.
