seating style


If you're not a fan of those big chair bows then here is a great alternative idea from a beautiful art deco inspired wedding - gold cloth simply threaded through the chair backs and left to hang. Super easy and it ties in perfectly with the celling drapery and beaded lights.

apple for the teacher


Looks like it's that time of year again for many. Show you care with one of our lovely teacher appreciation fingerprint trees, a beautiful way to say thanks. Each students leaves a fingerprint to act as a leaf on the tree and can also sign their name. Then the teacher can hang it on the wall - a great piece of art to remember a great class.
