The past few weeks have consisted of setting up my website, setting up on Twitter and Facebook, Designing and ordering business cards and finding fantastic people to team up with me to give my clients the most amazing event.
The people I have met and chatted with in relation to working together are so fantastic, and offer such amazing services that I just had to blog about them!
So first up we have Airy Fairy Cupcakes in Didsbury, Manchester. Airy fairy Cupcakes make stunning cupcakes, as well as layer cakes, cheesecakes and pies. They have a fantastic shop, which is so very retro, absolutely adorable. Not only do Airy Fairy bake these beautiful cakes, they offer a range of classes from cupcake decorating to burlesque and afternoon tea. If you wish to incorporate classes like this into your hen party or birthday celebrations then get in touch.
I have also been in contact with the lovely Samantha from Forget Me Not Bakery and Jenn from Little Poppet Cupcakes - both who make stunning cupcakes and their occasion cakes are perfect! Check out Samantha's ladybird cake and Jenn's bow cake, these are my favorite. I love them!
These fab little cake companies will work with me to provide clients with the perfect dessert buffet, wedding cake, birthday cake or afternoon tea.
For amazing and totally unique stationary I have found Elle is for Love and Cute Maps. Elle's work is like nothing I have seen before, she has such amazing ideas and offers a wide range of stationary for all occasions. Cute Maps are a totally unique idea, so cute and make brilliant keepsakes. They work with you to produce an accurate picture of your venue and the surrounding area.
I will be working with Simply Vintage and Queen of Hearts Vintage Crockery to help clients have the perfect vintage event. These include vintage weddings and christenings, children's tea parties, hen parties or quite simply afternoon tea, no reason necessary. These women have a fantastic collection of vintage crockery to make your event look fabulous. Bunting Queen will also be necessary, as you can't have a vintage event with out a gorgeous bunting - and these are definitely gorgeous!
Next up is my favorite dress maker Louise at Oh My Honey, her 1950's style dresses are fantastic! She made my wedding dress and my bridesmaid dresses. If you want a fab retro dress, Louise is your woman!
The retro photo shoots will be done by the brilliant NomNom Photography, as well as event photography, to capture all the fantastic moments at your event!
I will also be working with Superfunk Roller Disco and The Classroom on School Lane to give clients the party to remember!
Paper me Happy is another totally unique and creative business, and I absolutely love what they do! They make a wide variety of paper accessories for your event, or even for gifts and accessories to wear. They are a fantastic alternative to flowers on your wedding day and can be kept as gorgeous keep sakes. I love this idea so much, I just wish I'd have found her before my wedding. I'm just waiting for a time when I require flowers and I will definitely be getting in touch.
And I can't possibly blog about fab businesses without including Chase the Sun - VW Camper Hire! Their campers are so cute, and perfect for weddings and events or taking a retro holiday to the seaside. I had 'Dolly' at my wedding and she was perfect, she sat their looking all beautiful and the guests adored her. It wouldn't have been the same with out her there.
So this is a selection of the companies that I plan on working closely with in the near future. If you require more information or wish to book an event or activity with me then please do get in touch.
If you go direct to any of these fab businesses, don't forget to say you heard about them here.
