Did you see the BBC mini series Little Women over Christmas? A lovely new version based on the classic novel by American author Louisa May Alcott starring Hollywood stars including Angela Lansbury, Michael Gambon and Emily Watson.
The filming took place mainly here in Wicklow, Ireland and Adonis Flower Designers were approached way back in the spring to help source particular flowers and create designs for the shooting. Sometimes not the easiest of jobs as filming can be last minute depending on the weather or available access to buildings being used as the set and we could be creating Spring designs one day and Winter the next. It was hard work but so much fun to do! We were even asked if we would like to be extras but you will have to watch to see if any of us took them up on that offer! Oh and check out the flowers while you do.
Fact 1: All the foliage’s used in the Christmas party scenes were supplied by our Irish growers in Wicklow.
Fact 3: Most of the flower designs had to have perfect replicas in back up just in case anything happened to the first and it delayed filming.
