A new page has been added to my Vintage Tea Sets website to accommodate the fascinator workshops I personally host. Why not take a look…..and spread the word!

I’m now offering fascinator workshops at the Art Deco gem of a venue The Daffodil in Cheltenham for hen parties and birthday parti. Click here for more details on my Clara Bows Millinery Website. You’ll create a fascinator, have Afternoon tea or a three course meal at the venue on vintage Art Deco china courtesy of Vintage Tea Sets in this truly outstanding venue. You could even make a whole day of it dress up 1920’s style, and learn how to Charleston courtesy of Charleston Dance.
The Daffodil is an award winning conversion from a 1920’s Art Deco picture house into a unique and dramatic setting that retains many original Art Deco features and to top it off it has a stylish À la Carte restaurant! With sweeping staircases and views to wow from mezzanine Circle Bar, The Daffodil is perfect for your party, as well as wedding ceremonies and receptions. Check out this amazing wedding on ‘Steve Gerrards Photography Blog’ that took place at the Daffodil. Just stunning! Those pictures really do this gorgeous venue justice!
Go on immerse your hen or birthday party in the roaring 1920’s with Clara Bows Millinery & 1920’s Charleston Dance with some stunning vintage china thrown in to boot from Vintage Tea Sets. We’ve teamed up with the fabulous Daffodil in Cheltenham, a true ‘Art Deco’ gem to give you this ultimate 20’s experience. Spend the day soaking up the beautiful venue and relax knowing you don’t need to traipse here there and everywhere, instead kick back with a cocktail or two, make a beautiful individual creation to wear and learn some 20’s moves like the knock knees, high leg kicks, snake hips and goddamit shimmy!!! before having a high tea or dinner on some stunning vintage china.
I’m chuffed to pieces with this I really am. One of my recent fascinator workshops has received a glowing personal review from none other than the Editor of Cosmopolitan Bride (and You and Your Wedding) – she attended the Bake-a-Boo one. Click on the image to read it in full for yourself….
Last Sunday Rosie Parsons (photographer extraordinaire) and I embarked on a road trip to the big smoke from our comfy west country burrows, one that would merge her Birthday celebrations with a fascinator workshop I was hosting at the stunning little teashop run by Zoe called Bake-a-Boo (I’d been itching to meet this vixen after a mutual appreciation of vintage china and cake).
Meet the beautiful Zoe, making us a steaming hot vintage teapot of darjeeling on our arrival.
‘The Clara Bows head’ complete with an example fascinator I made the day before for some inspiration was placed on the beautifully laid table that the workshop ladies would be seated, and I set about laying out all the materials before they arrived.
Then the workshop commenced.
We paused for an Alice in Wonderland afternoon tea…..
Before resuming work again and completing these lovely creations. Here’s a picture of the hen party that took part modelling their pieces.
A lovely time was had by all. If you’d like to take part in one of these workshops or would like one arranged, see my millinary website Clara Bows for more details or email me (Vicky) at firstname.lastname@example.org
Yet more fantastic news folks. I’ll be running regular fascinator workshops on the ‘Harmony 2‘ a 189ft luxury mega-yacht moored in Bristol Harbour, not only that but will be offering hen & birthday party packages (you get the venue exclusively). Its just down river from the SS Great Britain but bang in the centre of the city, a perfect and very unique base to explore the city after having a fun day of activities.
You can stay overnight in the luxury cabins, take part in the many workshops throughout the day, from fascinators, bouquet making, cup cake topping and finally some nautical boudoir! Enjoy a slap up afternoon tea on gorgeous vintage china, relax in the hot tub before leisurely wandering to the many bars and restaurants on your doorstep. More details will be published soon, including details on the very talented individuals who will make up the very special workshop crew.
