Candy Floss Cascade

A candy pink concoction of fluffy floral textures and delightful garden scents, cascading around a simple and chic, soft white iced stack of scrumptious cake. A delicate iced bead accents the cake layers.

China Blue

A 'Wedgwood' inspired creation incorporating trailing white iced acanthus leaves and a delicately, detailed jug fashioned from icing.

Delightfully decorated with a perfusion of florals in pastel pinks, lilacs, purples and beautiful, delicate blues. Accented by fragrant, white hyacinth florets stranded in swag detail.

Heavenly Layers

An elegant, ethereal confection incorporating florals in soft vanillas, snowy whites and beautiful blush. Delicately punctuated with divine Lily of the Valley. A decadent layering of scrumptious, simply iced cake and truly beautiful florals.

Peony Cream

A 'tongue in cheek' creation incorporating a stack of pastel pink layered cake with beautiful iced bead detail playfully supporting waffle ice cream cones dribbling with floral peony cream, in soft iced white, snowberry pink and delightful raspberry ripple tones.

Titania's Garden

A concoction of peach iced, shell piped, square cakes hand embellished with a love poem by master scribe Paul Antonio, in edible faded chocolate ink.

With a nod to the fanciful Fairy paintings of the Victorian era the cake is decorated with whimsical fruits and florals and incorporates foliage accents to emulate the calligraphy flourish details.

All Tied Up

A fun and playful confection of perfectly, pastel pink, iced square cake with delicate floral ribbon and oversized bow detail in the most divine of buds, florets and petals.

Pretty Maids all in a row

A soft pastel citrine iced cake incorporating rows of miniatures delightfully adorned with layered ribbon detail and soft flowing florals in pistachio, pale pink and luscious lemon yellow.

This service is complementary and will give you an opportunity to sample our delicious flavours and go through your thoughts and ideas with either Tony or Javier.

A Wedding with a Renaissance Palette

   

 

 

 

 

The wonderful and decorative St Pancras Renaissance designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott in 1873 played host to our couple and their families for their nuptials on a balmy Summers day. With the sun shining through the elaborate windows onto the florals which had been inspired by the rich tapestry colours that meander throughout the hotel. The 'look' was accented by hundreds of flickering candles for an ethereal and romantic ambience....

We Love It When A Plan Comes Together!!

When our client first came to us, a super busy professional armed with a vision of blush sophistication, she not only requested our floral and decoration advice but also help with planning and design.  

The past weekend saw the culmination of months of decisions and fun!

 

The fair and beautiful Barnsley House is where we played our scene. With its amazing gardens designed by Rosemary Verey.

 

After a week of build and dressing amidst the mud and rain which threatened to scupper the party, the sunshine prevailed perfectly.

 

The lucky guests were met with the beautiful charm of

Barnsley House, we just added a few touches!

The Village Church

Florals Framed to Escort!

Now take your seat

And if its too warm...

After the band the evening reveal...

The Club

The Message To All!

Swan Lake on Sloane Street!!

   

Just as we were preparing for a busy week at BAOD....a new request flew in!

 

 

 

To design and install a window for Browns designer boutique on Sloane Street to celebrate Chelsea in Bloom!

 

With three working days to spare before  the install we set to work sketching... the theme was the decades of the last hundred years, as Chelsea Flower Show was to celebrate its Centenary.

 

With that in mind we turned to 1920's especially since 'the' fashion is all things Gatsby and came up with a Gatsby Garden with wisteria tree made of monkey vine and dendrobium and regal swans sculpted in floral foam embellished with soft feathery Summer blooms.Complete with pond like mirrors and peony water lillies.....

It's All About ME!!!!!!!!!!!

Hhhmmmm.... where do I start?  

 

Well back in June last year when everyone was gearing up for the Olympics full throttle we were donning hard hats and steel capped boots to survey the latest Norman Foster designed hotel in the Melia groups portfolio.

 

 

The ME Hotel, Aldwych, London.

The ME hotel is a five star deluxe hotel that exudes all the uber styling which you would expect from a James Bond movie set. All that said and no pressure we are responsible for the floral detail!

So this post really is ALL ABOUT ME! x

many things change the older we become, nothing more so than the speed of time!!

Sometimes it's astounding how quickly time races by....equally as amazing is how effectively we fill it!! We will be the grand young age of three years shortly!!

Whilst we have a super exciting and equally incredibly busy year ahead, we wanted to take opportunity of filling you in on the past few months!!

We hope to take the chance later to share more of these events, but for now........we hope that you enjoy!!!!

We are fortunate enough to have some very glamorous clients who seem to have as much admiration for flowers as they have for beautiful clothes. As a consequence these uber chic ladies need to make space in their closets sometimes.....

So we help by providing the space to sell the afore mentioned clothes...some worn...some never worn! Criminal!

Never worn Manolo Blahnik

The pop up shop will be open until Saturday, late night 8.30pm on Thursday 5th July....come along and find a beautiful bargain!

Arthur has chosen Karl Lagerfeld shades and a Fendi Croissant!

We are also bouquet making from a quiet corner!

We wanted to take opportunity to show you some of our process here at BAOD. A comparison of our original concept sketches and the finished article....hope you enjoy!
