Taste of Kent Awards 2011

Friday 25th February marked the annual Taste of Kent awards ceremony. The event was held at the beautiful Leeds Castle in Kent. The ceremony and dinner took place in the Fairfax Hall, a Kentish barn that dates back to 1680 and overlooks the castle from across the moat.

Broadview Florist was asked by the organisers of the awards, Produced in Kent, to design a table centre that had height but was not view restricting, seasonal and locally produced! We recommended a planted arrangement of seasonal Primulas with tall Pussy Willow that gave height, but allowed guests to look through to the ceremony beyond. The Primulas were grown in Hadlow, just across the road from where we are based! The staff at the greenhouses were extremely helpful and the plants for the event were strong and healthy and we had a great selection of colours to choose from. We added Produced in Kent's branded ribbon to the arrangements as a finishing touch.

By the time we had finished setting up the tables with the arrangements night had fallen over the castle making it a wonderful place to be for the evening's event.
