"The Kiss of the Winter Swans" - A unique floral sculpture
12/02/2020 - 15/02/2020 4:00 PM - 11:00 PM
From 12 to 15th February, Devonshire Square will be hosting in its Western Courtyard “The Kiss of the Winter Swans”, an original floral-art sculpture envisioned and designed by the Devonshire Square’s Events Team and created by flower couturier Katie Sparrow, to raise awareness and funds in aid of the #nobrokenhearts fundraising campaign in support of the British Heart Foundation.
The sculpture has been conceived as an imaginative representation of everlasting affection and loyalty, as swans are believed to mate for life.
The fresh flowers used to create the artwork include white avalanche roses, cymbidium orchids, Singapore orchids, white gypsophila and mignon red roses. The wings are filled with asparagus fern while the foliage on which the birds are sitting combines berry divvy, wild blossoms and lily grass.
The fundraising campaign runs throughout the Valentine’s week and donations for the charity can be made online by visiting the JustGiving page: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/no-brokenhearts.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in most of the countries across the globe. Help us to raise awareness about it by adding the #nobrokenhearts tag to any love-themed photos you will share during Valentine’s week and give your contribution for a world with #nobrokenhearts.
