Menu Covers Fit for a Royal Occasion, Chelsea Flower Show

Elegant style and horticulture will meet at the Chelsea Flower Show, the world’s most prestigious celebration of the art of gardening. The show will take place at the Royal Hospital in Chelsea from 19-23 of May, 2015.

The event attracts visitors from all over the world and showcases avant-garde gardens designed by floral experts all over the world. The tradition dates back to 1862 when the first show was held by the Royal Horticultural Society.

The Chelsea Flower Show is attended by 157,000 visitors every year and it is covered by the BBC and attended by several members of the British Royal Family. The show sells out every year and tickets must be purchased in advance. It’s considered to be the gardening equivalent of Paris Fashion Week – new plants are often launched at the show and it is where the hottest gardening trends of the year are unveiled. Several awards are given at the event, including for Best Show Garden, Best Chic Garden and Best Courtyard Garden.

Here at Smart Hospitality we are pleased to announce that some of our products have been ordered to be used at the Chelsea Flower Show. We are thrilled that our Menu Covers have proven to be fit for such a prestigious royal occasion!


Elegant Menu Covers Chosen for Chelsea Flower Show

The Menu Covers used at the Chelsea Flower Show were the Athens Buckram Menus, which were ordered in tangerine with gold foil. This fantastic menu cover design features a spine and external screw fixings, which makes them durable and stylish. They have vibrant beautiful colours, which allow them to complement the many lush flowers that they will be surrounded by.

They are hard backed, yet have a slim appearance and a cool and contemporary look. This slender-style menu is bound with Buckram book cloth, which has a very neat appearance and is water and scuff resistant. The menus are available with a different colours on the inside for no extra charge.

These menus were chosen for use at the Chelsea Flower Show because of their sleek and elegant design. They are the perfect choice for creating a beautiful and sophisticated atmosphere for guests of this high end event.

We are honoured for our products to be a part of such a prestigious and traditional London event. The Chelsea Flower Show has a long history and it is exciting that we can be a small part of that.


Looking Forward to the 2015 Show

There is a lot to look forward to at the Chelsea Flower Show this year. There will be a garden exhibited by Prince Harry’s charity, Sentebale, which is dedicated to helping orphan impoverished children in the African kingdom of Lesotho.

Another interesting exhibit to look forward to will be from Laurent Perrier and the stately home of Chatsworth in Derbyshre. The garden designer Dan Pearson will put together a triangular garden that can be viewed from all three sides, which will represent one of the beautiful corners of the enormous 105 acre garden at Chatsworth.

There will also be a beautiful “scented garden” sponsored by the beauty firm L’Occitane – which will be inspired by the history of the perfume industry in France. It is sure to contain many wonderfully sweet smelling plants, flowers and herbs that are used in high end perfume concoctions.

The Chelsea Flower Show will also feature a garden display by Al Barari Firm Management, which is entitled “Beauty of Islam”. This peaceful and relaxing green sanctuary will be influenced by Islamic Art and will feature plants such as papyrus, rosemary and jasmine.
