Concours of Elegance @ Holyrood Palace, Edinburgh, Scotland
It’s always great to be invited to hire greenery to some really interesting events and for petrol heads of any age this one doesn’t get much better.
Some background info on the event.
…With Her Majesty The Queen’s gracious permission to use the Palace of Holyroodhouse – a first for an automotive concours event – the annual Concours of Elegance remains totally unique in being the only automotive event in the UK to enjoy an authentic and spectacular Royal Palace as its backdrop, with keen Royal motoring enthusiast HRH Prince Michael of Kent as the event’s Patron.
As with the previous Concours events, 60 of the rarest cars from around the world – many of them never seen before in this country – are set to grace the spectacular grounds of Edinburgh’s Palace of Holyroodhouse. These 60 cars will be joined by displays of hundreds of other fine motor cars from the most prestigious automobile manufacturers and car clubs in the UK, the latter competing for the highly sought-after Club Trophy.
In addition to its unique Royal Palace location, the annual Concours of Elegance differs in other ways from a traditional concours, which usually includes a judging panel briefed to scrutinise each entry and select a ‘winning’ car. The Concours of Elegance organisers maintain that if a car has been invited to participate in the Concours, it is already a winner, with each vehicle owner voting on the other Concours car that he or she considers to be the most elegant car in the event….

For this hire they wanted a formal look to complement the classic cars featured during the event and opted to hire Olive trees, topiary Bay trees and small table top plants for the VIP drinks area and topiary Box balls to flank the outskirts of a food court.
