Team GB are bringing home the Gold’s. They are the elite, the best of the best. Standing tall on the podium holding aloft their medals and clutching their Victory bouquets with pride whilst the world watches on, it’s a moment few of us are ever likely to experience.

The Olympic Games is an event like no other, probably the most complex organised event in the world, the attention to detail at every level is mind boggling.

The Victory bouquets are no exception. Compact yet colourful, individually hand crafted by expert florists and floristry students across the South Coast, in terms of floristry exposure it just doesn’t get much bigger than this.Over the course of the Games 4800 bouquets will have been presented to athletes along with their medals.

Divided in to 4 parts, the Victory bouquet is a vibrant arrangement incorporating 4 varieties of Rose and 4 British aromatic herbs: Lavender, Rosemary, Apple Mint and Wheat. The vibrancy and delicate fragrance of the bouquet was specifically designed to enhance the senses of the athletes, to further enrich their moment on the podium.
