Cat Cubie - Park Inn by Radisson 2e

Nick Priestly and his team at Mood Flowers were approached recently by a PR company and asked to create a floral dress as part of a photo shoot for the opening of a new hotel, Park Inn by Radisson, in Glasgow city centre. According to Nick:

“We were approached by a PR company to create a floral dress to fit in with the theme of the “park” part of Park Inn. The first part was finding the right dress. It was important to find something fairly tight fitting and short as long flowing dresses do not hold their shape once the weight of flowers are attached. It was an early shoot so we arrived at the studio around 5:30am to attach 500 ‘Delmonte’ germini from the grower Holstein ( with a hot glue gun. At the same time another member of my team, Laura, built the flowers into the parasol, which, due to the Glasgow weather, was used as an umbrella (!). She used ranunculus, tulips, germini, green bell and daffodils. We assisted at the shoot helping to shelter the presenter Cat Cubie from the Glasgow weather and being on hand to re-attach a couple of stray germini onto the dress with a hot glue gun.”

Nick also let us in on some behind the scenes photos…
