Visitors to a spectacular floral fashion show in London this week (4-7 Oct) can win the chance to visit a secret garden restaurant that only blooms once a year.
Each summer, Sodexo Prestige Venues & Events, the UK’s leading catering and events company, teams up with renowned Michelin-starred chef and restaurateur Raymond Blanc, to create Jardin Blanc.
Jardin Blanc is a secret garden restaurant and the RHS Chelsea Flower Show’s official hospitality venue; an enchanting place filled with the finest food, art, champagne and, of course, flowers.
And Sodexo is giving visitors to Fleurs de Villes, at Covent Garden from Thursday 4th to Sunday 7th October, the chance to win two tickets to dine at Jardin Blanc when it returns to flower at RHS Chelsea 2019.
The four-day Fleurs de Villes event will combine the worlds of fashion and floristry with a dozen full size mannequins dressed in creations made entirely from flowers and foliage, one of which has been sponsored by Jardin Blanc.
The mannequins will be displayed in the Central Avenue of the historical Covent Garden market building – alongside a number of pop-up flower stalls – and visitors will be encouraged to choose their favourite.
Chris Wickham, sales and marketing manager at Sodexo Prestige Venue & Events, which will operate a stand at the event, said: “Fleurs de Villes is very much about combining natural materials with artistry and that echoes our ethos at Jardin Blanc.
“The Jardin Blanc restaurant is dressed like a secret garden, opening a new world of culinary delights to those who pass through its doors.
“And we very much hope as many people as possible will stop by our stand at Fleurs de Villes and enter the competition to win tickets to experience Jardin Blanc for themselves.”
