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.
Further details will be added to the Clara Bows Millinery website soon but feel free to contact me for more details in the meantime.
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.
Further to my recent posts on the fascinator workshops I’m organising…….
I’d like to introduce you to Julie, a lady with oodles of floristy talent and the gorgeous owner of Floriture. Together we’re collaborating on a number of fascinator and floristry workshops this year (one in Feb I’ll post details on shortly). Perfect for a crafty gathering, we can put on a afternoon tea for you complete with my gorgeous china from Vintage Tea Sets for a very attractive package price. Perfect for hen parties, birthday parties or just a meeting of craft loving minds.
Here’s some examples of what the lovely Julie can offer you in her ‘makes’, and remember we can tailor our courses to meet your requirements, just ask. Imagine a hen party where you can make your headpieces, button holes, corsages…..centrepieces….bouquets (obviously you can’t have it all in one day but you can have a selection)….even Bridal jewellery! why not have a two day course and make a weekend of it? Its a great idea for a wedding on a budget and you all go away with having learnt something and gained some new skills. There may be a budding florist in one of you but haven’t discovered yet. Do you have a theme you want us to incorporate in your workshop? Possibilities are boundless honestly. Contact Vicky on 0117 9532973 or email email@example.com
