We don’t often go to wedding fairs – they are usually slap bang in the middle of our busy season and we’re either at weddings or events or doing collections and/or washing up on Sundays! However – we thought we would do a little fair at the Corn Exchange in Blandford last weekend – just to see what response we would get and to meet new people and potential new clients.
It wasn’t the busiest day in terms of meeting new clients but it was a great day in terms of networking with other local suppliers, florists, cake makers and the like! We had a laugh with the lovely Brian Cox, Toastmaster, ate the sweets from the gorgeous sweet trolley by Gina and Julia of Sweetness (website under development but available at firstname.lastname@example.org!), loved the stationery from Ciao Bella, admired the amazing cakes from Gina at Cakes For Every Occasion, talked photoshoots with Darima of Darima Frampton Photography and took home some gorgeous flowers from the talented Michelle of Rhapsody….Phew…..and in-between all that we talked to a few couples about their wedding plans!!
Here’s some photos of our stand and a few of Gina’s cakes, flowers from Michelle, a lovely invitation with bunting (very vintage!) from Francesca at Ciao Bella and those sweets!!
We’ve been saving this one up for a rainy day but it’s time to share the lovely pictures from Ellis & Partners (independent surveyors, valuers and property advisors in Bournemouth) 20th Anniversary summer vintage tea – especially since it’s been raining for what seems like the last few years! So, back in June we were asked to provide crockery and bunting and tablecloths and goodies for an afternoon tea to celebrate their anniversary – all in aid of Naomi House and jacksplace, hospices for children and young people with life-limiting conditions, which mean that they are unlikely to live to adulthood. What a great charity to support.
The day was fabulous and everyone had a wonderful time – there was Pimm’s, a vintage car, sweetie loveliness from Treats2eat and even a jazz band! And the guests were pretty special too – not just the lovely people from Ellis & Partners but even the Mayor and Mayoress of Bournemouth indulged in the fun!
We do hope you enjoy the pictures!
