The Language of Flowers – the new collection by Fiona Cairns, launches exclusively at Harrods

Fiona Cairns, who famously created the Duke and the Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding cake, has announced the launch of her new and exclusive range of cakes at Harrods - The Language of Flowers Collection.

The range, which can be found in the world famous Food Halls, is launching as part of Harrods’ ‘Art of Entertaining’ initiative, which showcases and celebrates the finest food, wine and home accessories available at the Knightsbridge store.

The premium range has been developed exclusively for Harrods and celebrates ‘The Language of Flowers’, which includes four celebration cakes hand decorated with Hydrangea, Cherry Blossom and Rose decorations as well as a pack of two and a pack of six fairycakes.

Fiona’s inspiration behind the floral range is several hundred years old; flowers have been used since the 1700s to express specific sentiment and meaning for example, Hydrangeas mean appreciation or thank you and a Daisy promotes youth and innocence. This was made popular by Queen Victoria’s fascination of ‘Floriography’ and more recently reintroduced by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge when they married in 2011. One of the key themes at The Royal Wedding was The Language of Flowers, for which they requested specially selected flowers on their wedding cake, such as white roses and Lily of the Valley to portray purity and true love and humility and the return of happiness.

The Language of flowers Collection will be showcased in the Harrods windows including the ‘Outdoor Garden Party’ window and the ‘Wedding Party’ window, which will include a bespoke wedding cake.

Fiona Cairns comments, ‘The mystic and romance of the language of flowers continues and we are delighted to launch this new, unique collection exclusively at Harrods. Throughout the year we will launch new designs based on seasonal flowers and their differing meanings and we can’t wait to see what customers think of them.’
