TRENDS: There are so many beautiful trends going on at the moment, take a chance and go for something a little different.
Dried, bright and bold, modern or a mix of dried and fresh are a few of our favs!
We love getting creative, and bringing the dream alive.

DAVID + CHANTAL
These two are such a lovely couple, we discussed over a cuppa Davidโ€™s vision for the arch that he built.
Itโ€™s so lovely to be able to meet the groom and for him to share his opinion and thoughts.

This weekend I would have spent creating and meeting lovely brides to be at the @hitchdweddingfair
Iโ€™m so gutted it would have been my first wedding fair and I had something amazing planned. Until next time...

Day 21 of lockdown; Other the looking after bubs I am still finding ways to be creative.
What are you doing to fill in your days?
Xx

Letโ€™s have some fun on this gloomy Thursday!

Three facts about me:
1/ I lived in France for a year and that is where I met my husband.
2/ I did my own wedding flowers which I do not recommend any one to do!
3/ I am more of a creative then a business women itโ€™s something I really need to work on!

I nominate @theplumbersbouquet @riddellhair @tash.d.fiit

Post a photo or video of yourself and tell us 3 interesting facts about yourself, then nominate 3 other business owners/entrepreneurs

All my dried goodies I have collected over the past year are finally hanging nicely in my studio ๐Ÿ’•
Here are some before and after shots...

Romantic settings for your Monday morning.
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
I hope everyone is keeping busy in lockdown, letโ€™s hope these next few weeks go fast! ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿคž๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

Lush flora for the finishing touches.
