Window displays in London

Happened to walk past the Cartier store and observed a team of people putting the final touches on the window display.

As you can see Phalaenopsis orchids pretty much dominated the facade, with the exception of a branch.

A woman stood on the outside of the window, holding a mirror so that the creative inside would nowhere to adjust each stem of orchid. Serious work here.

Strolled past Penhaligon’s an old English perfumery and noticed a simple arrangement of stock in the window.

Some people don’t like stock as a flower primarily because of its scent. Secondly it is often used as filler in “grab and go” flower bouquets so it gets a bad rap. I happen to really like it all on its own, preferably used in mass. The pale yellow color looks great when paired with the white. Imagine 4 bunches of each color fashioned into a low cylinder…fabulous, though fabulously fragrant.

And on a table near the doorway they had a vase with would you believe, Carnations…and not even cut short.

Is it the flickering fragrant candle beside, or the gilded frame, that completely elevates this vase arrangement of carnations into something else entirely.

I noticed a tall arrangement in the window of a restaurant near the Hayward gallery. This was one of 2, the other arrangement was in the front window. Filled with pink hydrangea, un-bloomed lilies and tropical foliage.

Here is Allium (part of the onion family) used in a window display of a store I forgot to take note of. Possibly a clothing store.

Walking down King’s road in Chelsea I must have been the only one gawking at a huge billboard hung high above.


Billboard was for Jigsaw a London clothing brand. Nice use of red Gerber daisies here. Fake ones most likely.
