This summer, Flower Carpet, the most renowned flower event in Belgium, returns to Brussels, filling the centre of the city with the sight and scent of hundreds of beautiful flowers.
Between Saturday 13th and Monday 15th August 2016, the famous Grand Place in the heart of Brussels will be transformed into a colourful sea of flowers. This outstanding spectacle, which takes place every two years, is the ephemeral artwork of over 100 meticulous horticulturalists and Belgian craftsmen. These talented gardeners create a unique floral tapestry with 300 Begonias per square meter from 600, 00 cut flowers spanning over 1800 square metres, of the Grand Place.
This year is particularly special, as the famous carpet of flowers is celebrating both its 20th anniversary and 150 years of diplomatic and friendly relations with Japan. In light of this, Tapis de Fleurs, the event organisers have chosen to let the colours of Japan inspire the designers of the carpet.
With its ideal central location just few steps from the Grand Place, Hotel Amigo, a Rocco Forte hotel, is an official and exclusive partner of the Flower Carpet and the perfect starting point for all those who are curious to discover the radiant colours and delicate scents of this exclusive event, all the while enjoying the refined services of a five-star hotel.
To celebrate this special occasion, Hotel Amigo has created the Flower Carpet Package, a unique experience for this exceptional spectacle.
Everything is planned for a surprising and soothing stay while unwinding the beauty of nature into the heart of the city. A welcome drink at the Bar Amigo with signature cocktail “Frozen Bubbles”, created exclusively for this event by the hotel’s Head Barman and composed of Armagnac, Hibiscus flower syrup and Champagne.
To continue their journey, the guests will have the chance to discover sensorial enchantment thanks to the gift of a set of three candles created by the famous Belgian perfumery L’Antichambre.
