Time for Tea by Interflora at RHS Chelsea Flower Show

The highly anticipated RHS Chelsea Flower Show has arrived with stunning floral displays and artisan gardens. Interflora's bold 'Time for Tea' creation, displayed in the Great Pavilion, immediately caught our eye when the installations were unveiled... how could we miss the five metre tall teapot studded with beautiful, bright blooms?

Five of Interflora's expert florists created the 'Time for Tea' installation, inspired by 'the nation's love of a good cuppa'. The team captured the fun-filled spirit of a bright, summery tea party in their floral creation, using flower-studded teacups, cupcakes and biscuits as well as the blooming giant teapot. 

The bold, colourful design was awarded the Silver-Gilt medal at the show, in recognition of its outstanding creativity and artistic construction.

We spoke to David Ragg, the lead floral designer for the Interflora installation, who said: “We’ve had a lot of fun with this year’s design concept which evolves around the tradition of afternoon tea. It’s something which people can relate to and really raises a smile. We’ve chosen a fun and vibrant colour palette of flowers too, to add to that feeling of a high-spirited summer tea party.”

Our fabulously floral Chelsea Garden Blend tea would suit this summer tea party perfectly, with whole pink rosebuds dotted throughout the tea leaves. It's an ideal match for the brilliantly blooming teapot and it would pair rather well with those jam-filled biscuits too. Anyone for afternoon tea?

Interflora’s design exhibit ‘Time for Tea’ can be seen in the Great Pavilion at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show until 23rd May.
