Summer Pool Party

This gorgeous event used the beautiful garden roses from
Country Roses in Essex. One of our favourite flower growers.




Summer Luncheon



Garden roses from Country Roses



MInt and Alchemilla are perfect with roses



Petals cover the foam in the straight sided glass  bowl



Lavender was used in this  bowl




Every lunch would have white embrodiered linen napkins in my imaginary world


You can mix any colours together but I advise taking out the white and cream as the eye gets drawn to the light colour



Votives are from Pols Potten; one of our favourite Dutch wholesalers of vases and decorative items



A few sprigs of summery Saponica made it into the flower displays. I love this old fashioned pink flower and it is British grown!



These roses speak for themselves!



Flowering mint is so perfect for lunch



One of two Zinnias made it into these table designs. An underrated flower in my book



Floating flowers in the pool - You need to turn off the filter so you don't do any damage and also the power will blow all the heads to one end of the pool



Flat flowers float best and here I have included some white Pyrethrum daisies - another underrated flower I feel



Dahlias, daisies and blue Scabious



Petals have to be left on the table right at the start of the party or your end up with Pot Pourri!



Paula's tip

I often collect linen on shopping trips abroad. For beautiful embroidered linen in the UK, see the selection
