Olivia Burton Dream Garden, Covent Garden Store Launch
Last night I was delighted to attend the Olivia Burton Dream Garden and Covent Garden store launch. A beautiful celebration of flowers and nature all housed in a pretty pink greenhouse in the middle of Covent Garden Piazza. The Dream Garden is open to the public this weekend 28th September to 1st October.
The event was literally stunning, from the gorgeous ( and very boozy) pink cocktails, the exquisitely styled watches and jewellery inside the Dream House. When we arrived we were greeted with canapés and drinks then invited inside...As you entered the room, the floor was printed with " All dreams are welcome". I loved this attention to detail in the design which made it extra special.I was then presented with a dreamy pink everlasting rose from the giant box and shown around the collection of hand drawn inspiration illustrations and beautiful timepieces.
I simply loved these elements, they reminded me of some of my own drawings!
Bees are a key theme for the Olivia Burton brand so you will find them big and small across the range of jewellery and timepieces. And as you know bees have a great significance for me.
Also in the dream garden they had this super fun camera that took four shots at once creating a boomerang style moving image. This will be there all weekend so you can have a go too!

Once we had had a good look around the Dream Garden we were taken into the store. Where cabinets are filled with quirky props and beautiful products.
I was so delighted to meet the two amazingly inspiring women behind the brand. Lesa and Jemma. Now 7 years in they have become a global brand, all starting from a friendship that blossomed at London College of Fashion. I have met Jemma through social media and we had bonded over out love of flowers and similar design aesthetic, so it was an absolute delight to finally meet and realise we get on like a house on fire!
After finally diving into some more cake and creating a pair of the prettiest of earrings this fairy princess caught her carriage home!
