August is the month that the world has been waiting for with great excitement. The Olympic Games, which will go in London from July 27 to August 12, is going to gain much attention and anticipation, as we watch thousands of athletes participate in a variety of competitions. The Olympic Games are considered to be the world’s foremost sports competition that more than 200 nations participate.
4,400 floral bouquets will be presented to athletes along with Gold, Silver and Bronze medals during the Victory Ceremonies from Jane Packer floral design studio, an internationally renowned UK Florist
The Bouquet represent the vibrancy of the Games and made from iconic British Flowers.
All of the flowers and herbs in the bouquet are British grown and will be made at the time of the Games with the help of floristry students across the country.Design Story
The Victory Bouquet was designed by creative director, Susan Lapworth, to reflect the energy and vibrancy of the London 2012 Games.
The bouquet is sectioned into boldly colored quadrants to mirror the 2012 logo. These are separated by typical British food ingredients which also provide an eclectic fragrance.
Pink Rose – Aqua
Yellow Rose – Illios
Orange Rose – Marie Claire
Green Rose – Wimbledon
English Lavender, Rosemary, Apple Mint and Wheat
A key aim in the design of the bouquet was that the ingredients were grown in the UK. Sadly, the British floriculture industry that once provided with cut flowers, has been forced into near extinction. To achieve the aims, Jane Packer floral design studio had to reintroduce cut rose growing to the south of the UK.
JANE PACKER have partnered with key colleges whose floristry students will be assisting with the creation of the bouquets at games time.
These are – Writtle College – Essex, Bexley Adult Education – Kent, Kingston Maurward –Dorset
