Rachel Kennedy and Xue Wang created the Wild Melody table setting.

A spokesperson said: “It was a huge privilege to design at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

“We put in months of hard work to create something that we felt fit the theme and showcased our work and creative style.”

“In this culinary experience, immersed in nature, flowers grow through the raw wooden table, promoting horticulture with the emergence of young fruits and vegetables.

“Seasonal blooms in pinks, purples and blues, with bursts of vibrant color, keep the display naturalistic and balanced.

The award-winning design will be showcased later this month.

“The tablescape is surrounded by trellis and pergola, draped in the colors and textures of fresh flowers and foliage. Above the tablescape hangs a candelabra interwoven with moss and climbing plants, adorned with dried items.”

“We weren’t able to do this alone, and we have to thank our incredible team, carpenter Alasdair Malloch who answered all of our ridiculous wood-related requests, Jenny Cobb, a ceramist who entered into our vision and handcrafted the perfect complementary crockery and David Smyth of Albion Timber, our wonderful timber supplier and sponsor.
