the buzz has been building about the petal-filled fete we held in london recently in honor of the famed chelsea flower show. hosted last wednesday by kate spade new york creative director (and glamorously green-thumbed) deborah lloyd, we invited a few of our favorite bloggers and tastemakers to our sloane square shop for a proper champagne afternoon tea, including tea-finger sandwiches, sweets (7), scones, bubbly and tea.

absolute flowers created the bloom-filled display, filling the shop with a bounty of brilliant buds (3) and dressing our windows with pretty orchid posies (1). super cute (and talented) dj duo oohlala (2) stopped by to spin some tunes for us just before leaving for cannes, and guests such as zoe hardman (8), the broken hearts (6), and little boots  mingled with deborah (4) and played dress up into the early evening. after a fun and festive day, guests took home pieces from our newly-released summer collection (5), thanks to a surprise white elephant gift swap. thanks to everyone for make the day such a blooming success—we’ll be sharing some of the sweet shout-outs sent by some of our guests later on twitter.
