Karen Woolven Floral Design was commissioned to undertake the floral design for the launch event of the new Queen Elizabeth, the second largest vessel ever built for Cunard. Paying homage to the original Queen Elizabeth ship, launched back in 1938, the new vessel evokes the glamour and luxury of the cruise experience of this era.
For the grand launch in Southampton, attended by Her Majesty The Queen, Karen and her team were commissioned to create a scheme of floral designs to complement the splendor and prominence of the occasion.
The Queen Elizabeth is charecterised by the elegant Art Deco interior. Taking this as her inspiration, Karen created a range of pieces designed to capture the sophisticated decadence of the period.
