"Grandiflora Celebrations"


One of my favourite books is an absolute gem called "Grandiflora Celebrations" by Saskia Havekes with photography by Andrew Lehmann.


For us Aussies we know and love the much lauded Saskia Havekes of "Grandiflora" who has gone from strength to strength..... based in Sydney but conquering the globe ....


This beautiful tree was constructed by Saskia and her team from Grandiflora for the launch of "Fairfax and Roberts" new collection.  Fairfax and Roberts is Australia's oldest bespoke jeweller established in 1858.


It is absolutely stunning and the concept is ingenious ....... it is pure magic ..... evoking the look of a flowering cherry tree .... "a magic faraway tree" ......


this exquisite setting was for a private birthday dinner for 200 ..... egg-shell pink, white, aubergine and forest green ....



this gorgeous setting was for a garden party in Sydney ..... Saskia's work is extraordinary and leaves me feeling overwhelmed but in a good way!!!!!!  Such talent and such beauty ..... the book is published by Penguin/Lantern and is a visual feast that keeps giving every time you open it ..... create your haven of enchantment through this exquisite book!
