Valentine's Day 2020 in Devonshire Square - A love letter from the heart of London
13/02/2020 - 14/02/2020 12:00 PM - 11:00 PM
Devonshire Square will be marking the most romantic day of the year by decorating its iconic Avenue with an artistic installation of 250 heart-shaped balloons in ruby red, hot magenta and golden pink nuances, colours that symbolise passion, love, romance and friendship.
Love and romance will also be celebrated with a unique floral sculpture, “The Kiss of the Winter Swans”, that Devonshire Square will be hosting in its historical Western Courtyard from Tuesday 11th February to Valentine’s day.
The sculpture has been conceived as a beautiful and imaginative representation of everlasting affection and loyalty, as swans are believed to mate for life.
The original flower artwork - envisioned and designed by the Devonshire Square’s Events Team – will be created by flower-couturier Katie Sparrow by combining a variety of fresh flowers symbolising eternal love, sensuality, tenderness and true devotion, such as roses, cymbidium orchids and delicate gypsophila.
The love-themed artistic installations are meant to raise awareness on the #nobrokenhearts fundraising campaign that Devonshire Square will be running on Valentine’s week (10th – 14th February) in aid of the British Heart Foundation. Donations can also be made online by clicking on the following link: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/no-brokenhearts .
Visitors will be able to walk under the canopy of hearts, admire the romantic floral sculpture and treat their beloved ones to a scented bouquet of roses at the “Blooming Spot”, the pop-up flower stall that will be available in Devonshire Square’s Western Courtyard both on 13th and 14th February, from 9am to 7pm.
Lovers and romantics can continue their evening in one of Devonshire Square’s renowned restaurants, all serving an assorted selection of Valentine’s themed dishes, cocktails and menus.
