Double Dutch - appetites & emotions
Off cause we just had to see this flower show created by the Flower Council of Holland. Appetites by Lisa White and Bouquets of Emotions by Miriam Van der Lubbe & Niels Van Eijk.
Apparently it took them two full days, 100 kilos of earth and a small garden of plants and cut flowers to install the Appetites show. There were orchids, rare roses, venus fly traps, black peppers among many others. The wallpaper was the new ‘Sweetpea’ pattern by Cole and Sons, in a provocative black. It was so seductive, decadent and breathtaking.
Bouquets of Emotions were five different bouquets representing different emotions: sympathy, love, happiness, anger, and jealousy. You can see the bouquet of Anger (last picture) that was conveyed through snipped rose stems and withered branches. Absolutely beautiful - but wouldn’t like to receive one of those.
