Crafternoons at White Stuff!

We ran a bunting making workshop at the Truro branch of White Stuff today.

 crafternoon

We had a lovely time and enjoyed meeting fellow bunting lovers of all ages including a furry, four legged one. The new paper bunting designs got a lot of praise and we even managed to sell a few ready made ones to busy shoppers. If you haven’t already, do check out the White Stuff website and see what’s going on in your local branch. Such a great idea and we really enjoyed taking part.

Big Beautiful Bunting Boutique!

Thanks to wild weather and intermittent web connections we are a few days late opening but thanks to Lulu the dog and her amazing browser testing powers, our brand new shiny boutique is now live and open for business!

So why have we opened a BBB shop? The answer is simple, we love inventing and making beautiful things and not all our ideas are suitable for hiring out. The theme throughout our shop is very much about celebration and decor, for parties or just making your home feel dressed up for special occasions. We have included some tutorials which can be downloaded instantly. We’ll be adding to these weekly so please bookmark us and check back often. They’ll be lots more crafty decor ideas here on the blog too so watch out for those.

Massive thanks to Glass Magpie who always manages to turn our BBB web visions into reality. Also Lilac Tree  and Muddy Creek signs in Cornwall who make beautiful things to compliment our range. We are looking forward to offering lots more from them in the new year.

Enjoy the shop….postage is on us until December the 22nd so fill your boots!

Win! Kirstie Allsopp’s new book, ‘Kirstie’s Vintage Home’!

We are giving away a copy of Kirstie Allsopp’s new book, ‘Kirstie’s Vintage Home’ on our facebook page today! The book features the bunting we made for the Blues and Royals wedding due to be aired in the next few weeks. Along with the book we are giving away a 3m length of the antique style lace we used to create the bunting for the program. We also made matching table runners and this very special set will be available to hire next summer so book early if you love it!

This Blues and Royals set looks particularly beautiful because it is made up of two tiers, a smaller line of flags and a larger line hung below. To win the book, simply visit our facebook page and let us know what your most cherished vintage thing is. Good luck!

Seaside weddings at The Gallivant Hotel, Sussex!

Last year we supplied Cornish Blue Stripe bunting to Kelly and Ross for their seaside wedding at The Gallivant Hotel in Sussex. Kelly was kind enough to send us a few images of their beautiful day and as you can see from their photos David Long Photography, the Gallivant really is a fabulous place to get married. We’ve just been made bunting-company-in-residence at the Gallivant so we’re really looking forward to working with them again.

Handmade altars and the back yard bride

Hands up who’s getting married in a church……..anyone? According to a recent UK survey, out of the 230,000+ estimated couples getting married in 2012, almost 30% of them will be trading their local altar for a tree or a garden gazebo. It’s not just about religious views either, the draw of the countryside or a deserted Cornish beach is just too much to resist for some and with more and more venues offering beautiful gardens, who wouldn’t want to get married in the sunshine with birds tweeting above their heads?

Our friends across the pond have championed the back yard bride for years, their weather is arguably more suited to outside parties but they know how to turn an ordinary back garden into a beautiful oasis of love with just a few clever homemade props.

Don’t get me wrong, there is something very special about getting married in a church and we are so lucky in this country to have that rich history and architecture at our disposal but the dark wood and grey stone isn’t all that great for a pale completion and who wouldn’t want to be photographed kissing their other half in front of one of these?
