Bloomin’ lovely

Country Life Every Week - - Town & Country -

FOR the first time this year, Royal War­rant holder Bent­ley & Skin­ner will ex­hibit at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show (May 23–27). The only jew­eller of its kind at the event, its stand will be dec­o­rated with pieces in­spired by Na­ture, to­gether with flow­ers by May­fair florist Paul Thomas. Fol­low­ing the show, an ex­hi­bi­tion, ‘The Gar­den of Jew­els’, will take place at the Bent­ley & Skin­ner store in Pic­cadilly W1 (May 31 to June 3).

AFTER a suc­cess­ful event last year, when the bou­tiques, clubs and ho­tels near the RHS Chelsea Flower Show be­decked them­selves with ex­trav­a­gant flo­ral dis­plays, Bel­gravia in Bloom is back. The colour­ful six-day fes­ti­val will run from May 22 to 27, con­ve­nient for vis­i­tors to the grounds of Chelsea Hos­pi­tal, and the theme this time is chil­dren’s books. Ro­coco Choco­lates on Mot­comb Street plans to turn its store­front into a scene from James and the Gi­ant Peach and the The Halkin ho­tel will be draw­ing in­spi­ra­tion for its dis­play from the ad­ven­tures of Padding­ton Bear. Oth­ers tak­ing part are Lin­ley, Soane (both Pim­lico Road, SW1) and Mosi­mann’s (Halkin Street, SW1).
