The Busiest Weekend

Welcome to a weekend in the life of me! 

Friday was such a lovely day, a day trip to Bath was definitely needed, but it wouldn't be a typical Friday night for Rose and Willow Co without a Flower Crown Workshop

The lovely Luci, who is a workshop regular with us was enjoying her lovely hen weekend when I popped along as a surprise organised by her friends to run a Flower Crown Workshop

Next Saturday and off to Bourton on the Water for the lovely Carla's Terrarium Workshop as part of her hen party, can you tell we are in wedding season yet?

Sunday is usually a day of rest right? Nope think again. We were heading off to the lovely Greenway Hotel and Spa who invited us along to have a pitch as part of their Wedding Festival and Garden Party

And there you have a typical weekend in the life of Rose and Willow Co....

Kirstie Allsopp's Handmade Fair

A few weeks ago I booked tickets completely last minute to The Handmade Fair at Bowood house, Wiltshire. 

After an early start we headed off to sunny Wiltshire, the setting of Bowood House was beautiful and a perfect fit

Having booked a few creative workshops, I knew we had an action packed day ahead, first up we started with Modern Calligraphy with Lauren from Oh Wonder Calligraphy.

Next we made tassel key rings and made our way to the Shopping Village, full of makers and artists around the UK. Of course there were purchases of unnecessary pretty things but you can't go for a day out to a craft day without buying something! Right?

To finish the day we took part in a brush lettering workshop with Becki Clark in the Mollie Makes tent.

I would highly recommend The Handmade Fair and will be visiting the event at Ragley Hall later in the year for more creative and workshop fun!

The ticket costs for the full day experience were very well priced! So you should definitely visit if you haven't yet!

The Happy Mail Club

Life has been pretty hectic over the last few months for us as a business, with lots of changes. One of my favourite changes is - The Happy Mail Club

Launched in May this year, The Happy Mail Club is a monthly or one off subscription box filled with beautiful stationery and other goodies by indie designers, sealed with love.

I have always supported small businesses and local makers and to feature them in our boxes is the perfect combination!

My First Wedding Fair

Last week I received an email from Charlotte at Twyning Park near Tewksbury in the Cotswolds to ask if I would like to showcase at their Wedding Open Weekend. 

Of course I accepted but with pretty much 24 hours to go, panic kicked in. 

Where do you start? Where's my notebook? Do I need sellotape? Sample Packs?

But none the less I set to work, samples, sample packs and lots of custom mirrors later and I was set to go

Twyning Park is an absolutely beautiful venue, West County Marquees had supplied a marquee for the day to showcase the lovely venue and lovely local suppliers

Here are a few picture from the day:
