Stall holders were asked to contribute to the fund raising event by paying £25.00 for their stand and guests bought tickets for a nominal amount, with all the proceeds going to Barnardo's. The Ladies day featured all kinds of wonderful contributors including make-up demonstrations, jewellery designers, dress designers, gift cards, delicious cup cakes and rather decadent (and quite potent!) cocktails. The attention to detail was superb with all guests greeted with a cocktail, specially designed for the day and little cupcake cases of nibbles.
We were also treated to two different sets of singers, both with fabulous voices and whose music added to the general ambiance of the afternoon. I demonstrated a little table arrangement which I placed in a vintage-style jug and then worked on a heart design which I had been thinking about for some time. I got some really lovely comments from lots of incredibly friendly women, which was really gratifing and, although it hadn't been my intention, ended up with two orders for my heart design and met a lovely Bride who has subsequently ordered some designs from me!
