The Exquisite Queen Elizabeth I in Full Bloom!

The Exquisite Queen Elizabeth I in Full Bloom!

A friend sent me this photo of Queen Elizabeth I in bloom the other day and I am obsessed! I have done mannequin floral/holiday arrangements before but this event created by Fleurs de Ville is out of this world. The event in 2019 was called Covent Garden in Bloom. Queen Elizabeth I as you've never seen her before designed in collaboration with the National Portrait Gallery and Amie Bone Flowers produced this botanical incarnation of the famous Ditchley portrait.

Now there's not much better than strolling through Covent Garden let alone if this fantastic event was on. One day soon we will be able to go to the National Portrait Gallery and Covent Garden again. London Love!

We love our own commissioned Queen Elizabeth I artwork created by artist Dawn Pearcey.  You can shop our beloved Queen Elizabeth I Collection here.
