Join and OKA for lunch at Coworth Park

Wil­low Cross­ley will be talk­ing at this in­spi­ra­tional event on May 17

Country Life Every Week - - In The Garden -

WIL­LOW CROSS­LEY has built a rep­u­ta­tion for her re­laxed, rus­tic ap­proach to flow­ers that she de­scribes as ‘more cab­bage roses and cow pars­ley than care­fully aranged or­chids’. Her re­fresh­ing sig­na­ture style has at­tracted com­mis­sions from a wide range of clients, in­clud­ing Mul­berry and Jo Malone, and a num­ber of high-pro­file in­di­vid­u­als. More re­cently, she has cre­ated a hugely suc­cess­ful range of faux flow­ers for OKA that of­fers an op­por­tu­nity to achieve her dis­tinc­tive look with­out hav­ing to touch a pair of se­ca­teurs.

The lunch is at Coworth Park, Berk­shire, Dorch­ester Col­lec­tion’s lux­u­ri­ous coun­try-house hotel and spa on the bor­ders of Wind­sor Great Park. Guests are in­vited to ar­rive at Restau­rant Coworth Park for a glass of Cham­pagne at 12pm as they lis­ten to a short talk on the story be­hind OKA.

Af­ter a three-course lunch with wine, cof­fee and pe­tits fours, Wil­low will be in con­ver­sa­tion with our In­te­ri­ors Editor, Giles Kime, de­scrib­ing how she uses flow­ers to trans­form a space and en­hance an oc­ca­sion. Later, she will demon­strate how she made the bunches she has cre­ated for OKA and will also sign copies of Flour­ish, her lat­est book. The event will fin­ish at 3pm.
