It's spring time in London and for the second year running, Karen Tran brought her floral masterclass to another iconic London venue. We're talking floral opulence at The Savoy London, one of the most anticipated gala events in the UK for event industry leaders. This gorgeous gallery from Stuart Wood perfectly captures the luxury that unfolds and fun guests share. Jane Riddell of Planned for Perfection was approached by Sasha Cullen and Penny Clements of Savoy Weddings to plan and execute the event, and she was supported by Leanne Roberts-Hewitt of WildAbout and the uber talented Elizabeth Solaru of Elizabeth's Cake Emporium. The Savoy is the only luxury hotel on the River Thames, perfectly placed in the heart of London, one of the world's most exciting cities. See how The River Room with its light and airy ambience, chandeliers and grandeur was ideal to showcase the amazing florals created over three days by Karen Tran and her students.
Floral Opulence at The Savoy London
Opulence was the keyword for this masterclass. The floral palette consisted of an abundance of the most incredible statement florals in classic whites, creams and blush. The tablescape featured gold mirrored topped tables with tall cascading arrangements on specially created gold pedestals and floral runners across the length of the tables that cascaded onto the floor. The floral tunnel and archway of beauty that framed the middle of the River Room stood at an impressive 14 feet tall and 18 feet wide and was a sight to behold. Decorated with a flower carpet made up of thousands of roses, hydrangeas and orchids, there were also similarly decorated flower walls and even the pillars were dressed with incredible flower cascades. Elizabeth Solaru of Elizabeth's Cake Emporium created an impressive cake in gold and white for the event. Eight tiers in total and it stood over 6 feet tall and featured two petal shaped gold base tiers. She painstakingly hand crafted the white sugar rose appliques, rose bas relief and sugar flowers in blush, cream and white that adorned the cake. The specially created pedestal featured an asymmetrical floral swag of pink roses to finish the look. This year's floral opulence at the The Savoy London was a beautiful success and the team involved all deserve a round of applause for this kind of luxurious affair!
