When I saw Lily Chic Events portfolio the first phrase that came to mind was Beautiful, Chic yet Diverse! Lilian from Lily Chic has a knack for making each theme Unique adding different elements and textures to their settings, yet maintain a beautiful presence throughout each event. When you see how Lilian responded to our stylist interview…it all makes sense how she achieves her Unique sense of style….(and then I saw the size of her family…which has left me wondering about her superpowers – are those twins!!??)

Describe your style in five words? Unique, experimental, different, personal and chic!

Lilian (top left) and her very beautiful (and big) family! Makes us wonder how she does it all!

What has been your favourite theme/event to date? I have to say my favourite has now been my nephew’s Hungry Caterpillar Theme! It was so much fun to do!

Where do you look for inspiration (what inspires you)? I find it very hard to be inspired by other stylists as I see so many parties, so I get my inspiration from interior designers, food stylists and the days of old.

Name one of your all time favourite event décor elements? What is that makes this element so fabulous? I would have to say flowers. I always use flowers or elements of greenery in my tables. It just softens it for me.

Get the look event decor: The Queens Royal Tea Party

As the queen celebrates her 60th jubilee, I realise that the Queen has to be the woman in receipt of the most flower arrangements in our time. Its a little bit exciting to share, that my Mum too gave the Queen a posy of flowers when she was a little girl. The certificate of merit sits on my shelf and the memory of my Mum telling me the tale: After presenting the posy, she curtsied and carefully stepped backward, still facing the queen as is custom, the Queen whispered to her ‘Don’t trip dear’.

So this weeks ‘Get the Look’ is inspired by Her Royal Highness Queen of Britain as we style a tea party pretty and pompous enough to set for a Queen!
