Jane Packer London Olympics 2012 Bouquet

Posted by on Mon, Aug 06 2012 15:24:00

 

With the Olympics taking place as we speak, it had been announced earlier that Jane Packer was selected to create the Victory Bouquet for the medal winners.

"The bouquet was designed by their creative director, Susan Lapworth, to reflect the vibrancy and energy of the London 2012 Games.

It consists of four different types of roses sectioned into quadrants to mirror the 2012 logo. The roses being used are Illios (yellow), Marie Claire (orange), Wimbledon (green) and Aqua (pink).

The quadrants are then separated by English lavender, rosemary, apple mint and wheat which also provide a lovely fragrance.

All of the elements of the bouquet are home-grown with Landgard UK/Chessum Plants providing the roses, mint and rosemary.

Long Barn in Hants are providing the lavender and Shropshire Petals, the wheat.

The 4,400 bouquets required will be made at the time of the Games with the help of floristry students from across the country.

The colleges involved are Writtle College in Essex, Adult Education College Bexley in Kent and Kingston Maurward College in Dorset.

As some of you may know, Jane passed away last year. ... Her legacy continues in the form of these Olympic Victory Bouquets, created in her signature style of grouping individual blooms."
