As we were walking away from the afternoon, we couldn't help but reflect how amazing it was that in three short hours you had managed to teach a rather large group of novice fascinator makers to produce fascinators we would all be proud to wear in the future.
We'd all highly recommend you to hen groups of the future!
Create these beautiful textiles flowers to decorate your wedding. Choose to make them into a bouquet for the bride and bridesmaids, buttons holes for the groomsmen or maybe you want to use them to create your own table decorations. However you choose to use them, we will match the fabrics, buttons, lace and ribbons to your chosen theme so they fit perfectly within your wedding day.
Bouquets and Buttonholes:
A fantastic treat for the bride-to-be, an everlasting bouquet created by her nearest and dearest. And why not continue the theme to the bridesmaids bouquets and the groomsmen's buttons holes too. We'll work with you to select fabrics based on the wedding theme and colour scheme. You can even select particular flowers you would like to make. We can inspire you with lots of beautiful fabrics, buttons, and different flower templates and show you how to make them from fabrics and wire. Everyone will work together to make the bouquet, and if time get the opportunity to make a matching brooch, buttonhole, or hair accessory. The whole group will have a fantastic keepsake from the hen party and the bride-to-be gets a special item to treasure forever.
Perfect for the DIY bride and her friends. Everyone will get to create their own textile flowers which we can tailor to fit into your desired receptacle. Maybe you'd love to incorporate your Grandmothers vintage tea set, we'll provide polystyrene balls to fit inside the teacups to insert the flowers you make without damaging your crockery. Or perhaps jam jars are more fitting with your wedding theme, whatever you'd like to put your flowers in, we can make sure they fit! We'll work with you before the session to select fabrics based on the wedding theme and colour scheme, and even find out the bride-to-be's favourite flowers. On the day we can inspire you with lots of beautiful vintage fabrics, buttons, and different flower templates and show you how to make a variety from fabrics and wire. Everyone will work on their own table decoration, and if there's time they'll have the opportunity to make a matching brooch, or hair accessory to keep and wear on the day. The decorations will be a stunning feature on any wedding table and be a fantastic memento for the bride to keep.
