Spring has arrived

When I think about Spring I imagine fields of green grass, beautiful fresh aromas of blooming flowers, fresh mornings and warm sunshine.  But here in Perth WA, the reality is that Spring means strange wintery storms one day, hot sweaty days the next and don’t forget to throw in a dose of shocking hayfever!  But a wedding day is special and fantastic no matter what Mother Nature throws at us – so this post is a tribute to a blustery, wintery, rainy – “spring day” – and isn’t it marvelous!

 

The great outdoors

We just love styling events for kids.   It is so much fun creating a fun and whimsical event be it for a Christening, Naming Ceremony or 1st Birthday parties..  Our latest event is for a little girls Christening with an aim to make the party outdoors.  We have been able to create a look that seems like it is set out on a farm, but can so easily be re-created in any suburban backyard.  Most of the items you see are so easy to DIY too.

Add some pizazz to your drink!

When styling your wedding or event you want to make sure that your theme flows seamlessly.  You want to create an environment that has a great atmosphere, and a point of difference, something that your guests will never forget.  A great way to get that ‘something special’ is to tizzy up your drinks area. Everything from the bar, drinks containers, glasses and flavours can be customised to fit into your styling.  It’s so much fun creating a signature drink/cocktail for your event too.

See below for a few pics of a recent style look we created for a client whose wedding theme was industrial shabby chic.

Wedding Hair Styles

The whole team have voted that we give Pinterest a bit of a plug.  Pinterest is a virtual pin board we people ‘pin’ beautiful things they find on the web, and organsie them in one space.  A favourite search we do for our clients is finding Wedding Hair Do’s.  The ‘dos’ you find on Pinterest are looks that you might not find in the wedding magazines so you can really find something that suits your personal style and be unique!  Here is a sample…
