Tropical Noord wedding

As florists, we love clients who are super organised. Emily is one of these people, and her marriage to Matt was finely tuned, to every detail. The couple was oh-so-stunningly styled, and chose to continue this theme, with Belmont Events planning their whole day.

Matt and Emily are British expats living in the Netherlands, and wanted to show their guests the uniqueness of Amsterdam. The photographer captured the fun and frivolity of their special day in this behind-the-scenes story. They chose splendidly, in the Northside industrial venue, Hangar. Their wedding theme gave a nod to Central America, where the couple were engaged. The floral feeling was designed to be lush and green, using tropicals and whites.

Easter love

Just when we thought that Springtime couldn't get better, Easter hops around the corner and bathes our senses in all that is tulips, chocolate and gorgeous colour that goes on for miles. If we're lucky, maybe just a little bit of sunshine.

Juan, the Bluespoon pastry chef blew us away again this year with his eggcellent (see what I did there?) larger than life chocolate egg. It was a true Alice in Wonderland experience, complete with peep holes, perfect for sneaking a moment at the magical fresh floral bouquet hiding inside.

A sea of potted tulips greet you at the door, gaze back at you supping cocktails, whisper quietly to you from the library, and gardens literally grow out of the Bluespoon tables!

You simply cannot escape your own private garden that is the Andaz...dive in!
Happy Easter, bunnies!

Love is in the air...

Places such as this, remind me of my childhood. Dreaming of faraway lands, where Kings and Queens ruled, and Prince Charming promptly swept you off your feet, galloping on a white horse, hair flowing in the cool breeze...

Ok, so life doesn't exactly hand us the full royal flush, for this type of fairytale ending, but at least one can re-create the landscape!

Visiting the historical Trompenburgh, is like walking into a Golden Age painting. This 17th Century Manor House is situated in 's-Graveland, between the low lands of the river Vecht and the high ground of the Gooi region, and is almost entirely surrounded by water.

Beautiful paintings of ships, noblemen, King Neptune and life-size portraits of Cornelis Tromp and his family, adorn the ceiling and walls. And the beautifully maintained gardens are just begging for a Sunday stroll.

Doutzen Kroes' birthday bouquet

The reason we have a florist shop, is because we love people. We enjoy seeing our customer's faces, when we make a gorgeous bouquet for them. We love how they stand alongside our floral work table, and watch us weave every stem into one beautiful floral arrangement. There's something very down to earth, and natural about that. 

It's all about the feeling.

We recently noticed this post on Instagram, snapped by Doutzen Kroes, the world-famous model and actress. Dutch-born Doutzen, has graced Vogue magazine covers a record amount of times, parades the catwalk as a Victoria's Secret lingerie model, and is one of the highest earning models in the world.

We never expected her to be showing off one of our creations, which we had made for her recent birthday, on her Instagram feed

Just another reason why we love what we do (like we didn't have enough already)!

Happy Birthday Doutzen!

 

Fruitful Berlin project

This week we packed our flower bus to the brim. Trees, flowers and other wonderous things, and then we headed on a road trip to beautiful Berlin!

We were invited by fruit agent, Olympic Fruit, to decorate their stand at Messe Berlin.

Messe hosts events for companies from all around the world, and our client designed a beautiful stand for us to make our design.

The brief was to create a natural environment, which highlighted this companies delicious fruit, specialising in grapes, citrus fruits, kiwis and stone fruits (seriously, we have never tasted grapes this crispy and fresh!). And oh, what amazing colour there was to work with!

The centrepiece of the stand, was a semi-circle bar arrangement of fruit, Gloriosa, Eucalypt and Ranunculus. Suspended citrus trees hung in the meeting rooms and communal spaces. A beautiful fig tree tied it all together, in the centre of the stand. All displays were actually ripe for the picking, so anyone was welcomed to devour it... we felt like Alice in Wonderland!

Pop-up forest in Amsterdam!

If only we snapped a 'before' shot of the interior of this new building, Hudson Bay, before we started. The contrast compared to the 'after', was just spectacular!

A.P Bloem were invited by prestigious event company, Krem de la Krem, to create a magical fairytale forest, for a special private dinner of exclusive VIP guests. The location of this unique event space, is situated in one of Amsterdam's most central streets, The Rokin.

Starting out as a completely bare concrete room, together with scores of suppliers, busily decorating and installing, we transformed this space into a verdant magical landscape. Masses of green foliage masked any sign of a construction site, so that when the diners entered, they would be transported into another world, for an evening to always remember.

I'm dreaming of a white (and gold) Christmas...

It's been so busy this Christmas, that we didn't even have time to share what we've been up to!

So here a little snap shot from the gorgeous Marcel Wanders designed hotel, Andaz Amsterdam Prinsengracht. Sometimes it's worth waking up at 4.30am, for an install like this, and returning home covered in glitter!

We love decorating for this location throughout the year...

The Suite Life

Amsterdam is famously known for it's gorgeous winding canals, and in addition, the noble houses it hosts alongside.

One such abode, is home to one of our dear clients, Villa Nicola, a high-end inner city B&B. And we mean 'bed and breakfast', in the truest sense of the word.

Image: Villa Nicola

Guests enter via a stunning stained-glass window doorway, and are greeted into another world, by the gracious host, Werner.

Image: Villa Nicola
Image: Villa Nicola

The residence's levels are laden with an eclectic mixture of vintage and modern furnishings, paintings and decoration. Yawns are quickly nipped in the bud, by coffee, in maybe a dainty delft blue teacup, or perhaps a fresh croissant atop a beautiful mint-green ceramic. It will certainly convert one into a morning person! You just may never want to leave.

Image: Villa Nicola

The flowers play an important part, in the carefully curated style of the residence.

Werner cycles over to our Kerkstraat florist, and discerningly selects single stems of his favourite unique blooms. Each stem is considerately placed, according to each space's individual style and colour scheme. 

Image: Villa Nicola

Due to the location's sophisticated and varying aesthetic, this B&B is highly sought after for shoots and launches, such as a lingerie shoot with Anna Nooshin for Hunkemöller, Philips male grooming lines, or fashion for Cosmopolitan magazine - all juxtaposed amongst the gorgeous walls and surfaces.

Summer Love

Summer this year, only presented sunshine on a rare few days. Andy and Luc were lucky to win this great weather lottery, to celebrate their big day in Amsterdam and say their special "I Do's" 

The ceremony was held at the super glamorous ballroom at Rockstart, with its gold gilding and larger than life-size art photography, gracing its walls. 

The after party and reception, took place at the always beautifully stylish and fresh, Hotel Droog. A boat ride along he Amsterdam canals, connected the two. We just love designing for inspiring spaces such as these!

The talented photographer Sergio Sandman captured the wedding and it's guests, in a gorgeous relaxed style, showing off what a great time everyone had!

Springtime tulip fever - at The Amstel Hotel

After 2 months of rain and cold... everyone is rejoicing at the first signs of Springtime in Amsterdam. Finally! We have absolutely loved working with our favourite flowers this season, including the show-stopper tulip, presented in every single shape, colour and size. 

Gorgeous pops of colour lay beneath the luxurious glittering chandeliers of the The Amstel Hotel for this recent birthday celebration. 

Prepare yourself for more gorgeous tulips in the coming days! We have plenty to share with you.

Our little florist provided a gorgeous entrance, for the journalists and bloggers who were invited to the industrial space, Pistache, where the event was held.
