Fascinator and Floristry Workshops brought to you by Vintage Tea Sets & Floriture

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 info@vintageteasets.co.uk

Green Weddings – Rosie Parsons meets Green Union

Good friend of mine Rosie Parsons (amazing photographer, check her out immediately) moved to Devon a couple of weeks ago, and whilst its a real shame she’s no longer knocking around Bristol, it does give me a damn good excuse to visit one of my favourite parts of the world on a regular basis and sample tea and cake in quaint tea rooms, clouds….silver linings!  When I said I was popping over for a visit she suggested we go and visit the very lovely Rosie Ames founder of Green Union who I’ve been chatting to for over a year know and recently joined her movement of promoting stylish and sustainable celebrations.   Well hell yes!  that sounded a great idea!

When we arrived at Rosie Ames beautiful house thats situated in the heart of rural Devon, a freshly baked warm delicious polenta cake was waiting for us on the table,  all around was the stunning craftsmanship of her husband David Ames who makes the most gorgeous wooden furniture.  We chatted, drank tea, ate that gorgeous cake and said Hi to her cute chickens until it started to get dark….quite frankly I was ready to move in.  It was heaven!!! What had Rosie A let herself in for.  She also runs a B&B there and I mentioned on the return journey that I am sure she must do a heavenly breakfast if the cake is anything to go by, well worth a visit .  Rosie Parsons has already blogged this here, but here again are her lovely shots of the day including one of me in my Clara Bows Hats I make.

Polenta Cake that was yum!

The very lovely Rosie Ames
