Tolly’s of Newmarket was delighted to be appointed to design the flower displays for the prestigious three-day Darley Stallion Parade, an annual event held as a thank you to breeders.
This is the 30th year running that Tolly’s has supplied the flowers for the glittering occasion held at Darley’s Headquarters in Newmarket.
The event was hosted by HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, ruler of the Emirate of Dubai, who hosted an impressive lunch at the global horse breeding operation’s Newmarket headquarters.
Head designer Tolly Considine said 1,000 people a day attended the three-day lunch held in the second week of July.
“It was a huge honour and I always look forward to designing the flowers for the Darley Stallion Parade each year,” he said.
Mr Considine comes up with the ideas and puts forward his proposals for the event at the start of the year, and gives a trial of his design in May.
This year he changed the style from corporate blue to an English summer garden theme and the marquee was decorated with spectacular displays featuring seasonal flowers in pink, blue, white and purple.
