oversized rose

Oversized rose headdress

I have finally finished this custom oversized rose headdress. This was an experimental piece, the one your customers inspire you to dare and do it by ordering something quirky. You try your best and come up with … well, a masterpiece! 
Oversized rose headdress
Created employing Japanese flower making techniques the piece has proven to be time consuming but the result is impressive. Not only does this rose look natural it is also very durable as each and every petal and leaf is lined with another layer of silk.

As with mist of my flowers I have painted all the fabrics for this headpiece, which basically means that a similar headdress can be created for you in colours matching your outfit or wedding theme.

Oh, I do love this rose I must say! ☺

My second Wedding Fair, bestsellers and more

You know this feeling: you are waiting for something, the time is dragging on and it seems that it will never happen. But voila, with a blink of an eye the long-awaited event has come and gone! After 2 months of rather intensive preparations yesterday I took part in my second Wedding Fair ever and the first one in the new area. The event was organised by Norfolk Brides (many thanks to Dalia) and was held at the beautiful Drayton Old Lodge wedding and conference centre. As a result of a lot of advertising on social media and in the local press, we had a decent footfall. 
Here is how my stand looked at the Fair:

Despite a very chilly day the morning started very busy and continued up until lunchtime. The second half was slower partially probably due to the local football game. I saw many more genuinely interested brides and their mothers than at my first Fair. The most popular item turned out to be my wedding butterflies as hair clips, brooches and headbands.
The oat pearl headband with a large white rose was second most popular along with veil fascintors and wedding hats.
This unique headband in the roaring 20s style can be purchased from my Etsy shop. I can also make to order similar headbands in silver grey and golden colours.
 Given the number of business cards and leaflets handed out let us hope for a busy forthcoming wedding season. Meanwhile I shall continue working on new wedding designs which I will share with you here 🙂
