It’s not everyday that team STG get to attend a Royal Gala dinner, so we are dying to tell you all about this one! We were lucky enough to attend the Karen Tran Royal Gala dinner at The Lanesborough Hotel in Hyde Park, London and we had the most wonderful time!
The special Royal Gala dinner was the culmination of the three day royal wedding inspired floral masterclass attended by students from all over the world and delivered by global floral icon and renowned floral designer Karen Tran.
Karen envisioned a grand wedding breakfast fit for the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Miss Meghan Markle., and the outcome was a perfect blend of outstanding American floral design in a typically English regency style setting.
Presented by Elizabeth Solaru of Elizabeth’s Cake Emporium and Jane Riddell of Planned for Perfection along with support florist Leanne Roberts-Hewitt of Wildabout, the floral filled gala was a breathtakingly beautiful kaleidoscope of pastels, whites and gold.
Karen looked absolutely stunning in her incredible dress (fit for a princess) from one of our favourite STG Recommended Vendors The Wedding Club.
If you’re anything like us, we are sure you will be absolutely BLOWN away by the amazingness of this fabulous dinner! We’ll let the pictures do the talking now, enjoy… there is some serious pinning to be done here!
The Perfect Palette
Karen transformed the wedgwood blue Belgravia room designed by the late Albert Pinto into a floral wonderland featuring the most dramatic floral tunnel and tablescape laden with exquisite blooms supplied by Piet Van Kampen of G Fresh.
She used a combination of blush and peach roses, white hydrangeas, seasonal tulips in white and pinks, hyacinths, phaelanopsis and cymbidium orchids to create her signature tall cascading table arrangements. In between the tall arrangements were baroque gold candlelabras and along the length of the tables were low groupings of flowers in beautiful hand cut vases and gold candlesticks.
