Wow. What a weekend we just loved hosting our open bridal days. So much joy and excitement to be shared! We met some lovely brides and were inspired by their colour choices and themes! 
The whole team were in Friday, including our newest recruit Hermoine. We loved every second of setting up our displays and even got our noses into some bridal magazines, doing some very serious research..... not at all getting side tracked by dresses, photo shoots and venues! Wow. What a weekend we just loved hosting our open bridal days. So much joy and excitement to be shared! We met some lovely brides and were inspired by their colour choices and themes! 
We are perfectionists, so Friday evening included various group discussions from invitation display colour schemes to what vase the flowers looked best in etc! What can we say we are creative people so it just has to be perfect! The set up was beautiful. 
 
Bloomin’ Clares, a local florist in Fair Oak was one of the local businesses we had at our open day! Bloomin’ Clares’ aim to create floral magic and they most definitely added a magical touch to our open day. I’m sure you would agree if you attended they smelt and looked INCREDIBLE. We love fresh flowers in our barn and were privileged to showcase her work! 
Our team were on hand to inspire, inform and listen! Our services include bespoke jewellery, hand crafted invitations and craft stock a plenty to contribute towards achieving the perfect little touches for your big day! If you are getting married we would be more than happy to help and we love to make everything we design as personal to you as possible. 
 
Among the tea drinking and cake munching we enjoyed sharing our free Make & Take with you brides to be and your trusty bridesmaids. Why not have a go at home following these simple instructions to beautiful paper craft bunting? 
 
You will need: 
 
· Letter stickers 
 
· Patterned Paper or Card – a great way to use up some scraps! 
 
· A length of ribbon or lace 
 
· Paint – we chose white chalk paint but any colour would do 
 
· Pencil, paintbrush, scissors and a hole punch 
1. Use your letter stickers to create a triangle template. We found sticking our letters onto your template paper the best way to create the right size. 
 
2. Draw round your template onto patterned and cut out your triangles. Make sure you have the right number to spell out your word/words 
 
3. Punch two holes in the top edge of your triangles to weave your ribbon/lace through 
4. Apply the stickers to the centre of each triangle, being careful to try and position at the same height on each 
 
5. Wash the colour over the triangles, being careful to make sure the coverage is even around the edge of the stickers for a crisp finish 
 
6. Add layers of paint until you can no longer see the pattern through the paint; this may vary depending on your background colour. We ended up applying four coats 
7. Allow to dry completely and then remove your stickers to reveal the beautiful pattern 
 
8. Weave through your ribbon or lace, allowing plenty at either end to hang 
 
9. Hang your beautiful bunting for the world to see! Now there’s no stopping you, why not repeat for Valentines, Easter, Christmas, Birthdays and more!
