McQueens at Claridges: The Masterclass

Since 1991, McQueens florist has been a hot spot for the most creative floral designs in the city of London, and they have gained customers as far away as Japan and Hollywood. Set-up by Kally Ellis, a former marketer with a French merchant bank, Kally drew on her marketing skills, along with her passion for colour and design to create McQueens.

Kally says “I wanted to sell simple, stylish flowers, beautifully presented, to the London market. And I knew people would love it.” McQueens is riding high, becoming a premier name in the UK flower market, supplying such well established brands as Harrods, Rolls Royce, Christian Louboutin and Mulberry.

This December will see the amazing McQueen’s giving a masterclass at London’s bastion of luxury Claridges. It will give eager aspiring florists the chance to learn about flowers with expert guidance and discover more about flower care, whilst making their own unique festive flower arrangement, which they can take home at the end of the day.

There will be two classes on December 13, one at 10am to 12pm and another at 2 to 4pm. The classes are now fully booked, which isn’t surprising.

We are proud to have McQueens as a partner and we wish them the very best of luck with their masterclass. To all those going along, we hope you have an amazing time. Xx
