BBC1 series Classic Mary Berry showed the baker at Leeds Castle, which she visited during its annual Festival of Flowers

Fans of the BBC1 series Classic Mary Berry will have been delighted by a recent episode which showed everyone’s favourite TV baker at Leeds Castle, which she visited last September during the annual Festival of Flowers event.

Floral designer Simon Lycett and his team transformed the Banqueting Hall into the most spectacular of settings for a ‘fantastical and fulsome feast’ as would befit Henry VIII.

Simon used an abundance of seasonal British foliage and flowers, some of which would have been used to deck the hall in Tudor times, combined with exotic blooms fit for a king. He created a palette of colours from softest blush to deepest burnt umber, with accents of gold to add to the floral fairytale.

With sparkling crystals, twinkling candles, delicious sweet meats and cakes, the delectable dinner table was a huge success with Mary Berry, who helped Simon create some floral treats for timeless entertaining.

• The Festival of Flowers takes place this year from 15 to 20 September 2018.
