A Luscious and Very Special Floral Celebration

The atmosphere in Sleaford was abuzz with excitement and floral enchantment as Interflora's centennial celebrations unfolded. Amidst the jubilant festivities, a truly showstopping sight captured the attention of many—a magnificent floral installation standing tall, measuring two meters in height and spanning four meters in width. This masterpiece, positioned outside the Interflora office on Watergate, beckoned admirers with its vibrant colors and exquisite craftsmanship.
