Labour Day in France

At the beginning of May the team installed the third design in the window at a French Brasserie restaurant in west London.  The restaurant was going from strength to strength, with fantastic reviews and the team were excited about the new design.

The floral design team have continued to source beautiful old rustic furnishings from various secret locations, all the staff been amazed with what has been found over the last couple of weeks.

This month the team at Todich Floral Design wanted to use vintage crates to use for the restaurants window display, we felt the rustic crates would really work in the space and would create the country feel that works so well in restaurant space.  The idea was to plant within the crates which were placed at different heights to creative interest, both inside and out.


The installation was scheduled for the 1st May which is ‘Labour Day’ in France and it is tradition to give your workers, Lily of the Valley.  We felt it was important to incorporate this into the design and filled shallow old apple crates with Lily of Valley plants and covered them with moss.  It was really effective and this featured looked stunning for customers who entered the restaurant.

We also incorporated spring blossom which looked beautiful in an old tall galvanised container and the containers worked well with the citrus greens plants.   Large pots filled with herbs were placed on upturned crates which complimented the herbs in the outside containers. The installation mixed old with new and gave a fresh new look for the French window display.
