Celebrating 100 Years of RHS Chelsea Flower Show

The Chelsea Flowers Show commenced their centennial year of the world-renowned flower show last week and what a week it was. And don't just think it's only Pimms and flowers, it pulls in worldwide press and visitors, beautiful and thought provoking gardens and rare plants, and stunning design.

Not only is this show about beautiful gardens and fragrant flowers, but it's about great design in general, including art and fashion. From the super stylish and creative Artisan Retreats, where Wayne Hemmingway, Cath Kidston and Rob Ryan created stunning summer houses showing casing how they work in their gardens to the awe-inspiring gardens created just for the show.

The show also teamed up with London College of Fashion and launched a competition to design a t-shirt. Fashion Textiles student, Katie Bowkett, created the winning t-shirt design to celebrate 100 years of the Chelsea Flower Show.

I also want to dedicate this post to my wonderful friend Sara who is also the show manager at Chelsea Flower Show. She did an amazingoutstanding job and works very hard all year long to bring us this amazing show of beauty (and Pimms) for 1 week in May.

Have you ever been to the Chelsea Flower Show?
