So when I was bowled over by the Floristry Vintage Festival in the Rose Marquee at Hampton Court, I did wonder if the heat had got to me. But no, two days later I still think it was brilliant. The tea party, the 1950s sitting room (even the slippers!) and the hat shop were all quite fabulous and the detailing could not have been bettered. It is a real tour de force, so if you are heading for the show make sure you take a look. Impressive and colourful floral display of a hat shop cakes made from flowers and plants
