My First Customer!

The day has arrived! My little project has its first customer! Hurray!  

 

Over 100m of bunting and some little fairy lights sets are heading over to Karen in Otley this morning for her step-daughters wedding reception “Darn Sarf”.  

  
Here’s to a fabulous party!

Here’s to the summer!

So, exciting things are afoot!

Recently I decided that I would try and branch out into Wedding Accessory Hire! I have boxes and boxes of beautiful bunting, jars, vases, crocheted doilies, fairy lights and table number holders that are sitting, whiling away the days, in my┬átop room…

I also thought I might try and branch out into making bouquets from the paper flowers that I made for our wedding. Not only that but I’m currently making a rather lovely brooch bouquet (even if I do say so myself) for my gorgeous friend Jo! Which is great fun!

So, to exciting things… I spent a tea break chatting to my lovely friend Karen who owns a little coffee shop in Otley about all the thoughts in my head and she has given me the lovely opportunity to dress her cafe’s window for the summer!

What a splendid idea!

I have enlisted the help of my super talented friend Helen to guide me in my quest to dress the window with a selection of my wares so it’s all very much go! go! go! in the Lowe Household!

I shall be making 30 flowers for the display – using some of my jars and vases to hold them and of course there will be bunting!

My afternoon has been happily spent making a small button bouquet for the display. I’ve seen them elsewhere on the web and it was just another thing that I though “I can make that!” So I did! I used a 3inch polystyrene ball, some crepe paper and a selection of buttons to build it up and, to be honest, I bloomin’ LOVE it!!image
