Private dinner party. Somerset, England.How to introduce a modern concept and feel to an austere yet luxurious Palladian mansion – a Grade One listed building and exclusive hotel in the heart of the Somerset countryside – and just a few days before New Year’s Eve? The occasion – a surprise 21st birthday party - demanded something ‘edgy’; something daring and modern; exuberant rather than sober or romantic.
Karin created the concept of balls of flowers in vibrant colours, suspended as floral mobiles from graceful bespoke stands, for the reception rooms, the exterior of the hotel and the dining table.
Little wonder then that I Dream of Cake – one of the world’s most sought-after confectioners – described the arrangements as the most amazing they had ever seen.
