Sparth House Hotel - New restaurant official open evening

Last night was time to slap on the make-up after a long day at the shop and go up to Sparth House at the invitation of  our friends - Amanda and Shaun - the owners to join in the celebrations of their official restaurant/bistro opening, alongside The Worshipful Mayor of Hyndburn, Collette MacCormack - which saw guided tours of the newly created and designed eating area.  The area, believe it or not was two former storerooms, adjacent to the kitchens, which Shaun (owner) - a wonderful builder, (everybody should have a Shaun) decided to change into a new extended restaurant/bistro area, to increase seating capacity and make somewhere for diners to go and enjoy on regular lunchtimes and evenings.  With the menus now starting from £9.95 for two people for lunch and £12.00 for two in the evenings, alongside the A la carte menu, I don't think they'll be short of diners, with the quality they provide!!
Visitors start to arrive for a lovely night indeed

Suzanna's beautiful wedding flowers

It was a pleasure to design Suzanna's wedding flowers for her wedding on the 27th October 2011 at The Shireburn Hotel, Hurst Green, Nr Whalley.

She chose Ivory roses, mini white calla lilies, blue thistles, and white chinz to compliment her teal bridesmaids colour.

The teardrop bouquet also included Rosemary for added aromatic fragrance, and loops of her specially sourced teal fabric ribbon to compliment the theme perfectly...

Thank you Suzanna for letting me be part of your very special day!

Real Trust Corporate Function at The Mercure Dunkenhalgh Hotel - Thursday 29th September 2011

Thursday evening was a busy one!

The Martini glasses certainly looked good in the grandeau of the Pendle Suite!

We dashed over to The Dunkenhalgh at teatime to set up our 70cm Martini Vases with red gel, and red, yellow and Blue arrangements on our 12 inch mirrors - for The Real Trust from Rochdale, who provide training for teachers and school staff - I believe they really let their hair down!

A big thank you, to Rachel Hodges from The Real Trust for choosing us to design the corporate function flowers for them!
