Spotlight On

The Dalloway Terrace

 
From creatures of the deep to a Sicilian Lemon Grove - the McQueens Flowers Events team relish in receiving an inspiring brief and delivering their floral interpretation. With the imminent onset of spring, Head of Events, Gina Hardy was particularly excited by a 'quintessential' brief from London’s iconic Dalloway Terrace. Set in The Bloomsbury Hotel, a grade II listed building in the area of the same name - the terrace is named after the eponymous character penned by Virginia Woolf, an author whose name will forever be associated with Bloomsbury, Dalloway Terrace is an elegant, poetic and quintessentially English space.

Dalloway Terrace is renowned for its seasonal transformations - and just in time for spring, McQueen Flowers Events team lead the design renewal. The floral installation takes inspiration from Virginia Woolf's tranquil garden at her 16th-century Sussex retreat , ‘Monk’s House’. The garden played a very important part in Woolf’s life and provided a source of both inspiration and tranquillity. Virginia wrote most of her major novels in a wooden writing lodge tucked in the corner of the orchard in her garden.

The idyllic floral design will transport guests to the stunning surroundings of a quintessentially English garden complete with an abundance of cascading roses, sweet peas and tulips entwined around terracotta pots. Also laced throughout the restaurant will be a selection of herbs filling the terrace with fragrant notes of Lavender, Rosemary, Thyme and Mint.

The ultimate spring setting is complimented with a decadent menu - sip on botanical cocktails including the ‘Sweet Pea’, ‘Blue Bell’ and ‘Garden Rose’ and feast on seasonal plates such as Welsh Spring Lamb Cutlets, served with Charred Courgettes, Aubergines and Salsa Verde, Primavera Tart of Peas, Asparagus, Broad Bean and Baby Leaf Salad.
