Skip down to Sketch in the heart of London as it plays host to Mayfair’s first-ever flower show.
The regal venue, previously the headquarters of the Royal Institute of British Architects, has been transformed into an oasis of colour and scent thanks to some of the city’s most playful green-fingered creatives.
Walking into reception a spread of greenery greets you, while a cascading waterfall of flowers lures you in further.
Stepping into the Glade bar, a suspended ceiling of pastel coloured posies await.
The pièce de résistance can be found if you head to Sketch’s quirky bathrooms – famous for the giant egg-shaped toilet cubicles – where tropical blossoms can be found sprouting left, right and centre.
Continuing on the floral theme, Sketch’s three Michelin starred chef, Pierre Gagnaire, has created a special lunch menu for the Lecture Room & Library restaurant upstairs featuring flowers in all three courses.
A floral afternoon tea, priced at £45, will also be served for the duration of the flower show, which runs from May 17 to 29. On the side there will be live violin, cello and jazz performances.
And to wash it all down, a selection of summery champagne cocktails infused with light flavours including Earl Grey tea, rose and vanilla, have been rustled up using the venue’s signature bubbly, Pommery.
So get on down to Sketch, look up and smell the roses!
