Well it would be weird not to cover my own press lunch wouldn’t it! I am sitting at my desk buzzing after a wonderful lunch with lovely ladies who have championed me since I started my little shop alongside The London Mummy. When Daze from Archie’s Food asked if I would like to review their catering service, I jumped at the chance and decided to tie it in with a Spring launch to showcase all my new goodies. Here is how it went…
The trio from Archie’s Food Husband and wife duo William (his middle name is Archie) and Daze with their professional silver service waiter Mark arrived in good time and set to work moving chairs, laying up and prepping the food.
It was so lovely not to have to worry about any of those logistics and I knew from the excellent communication that I had with Daze in the run up, that everything was in hand. We had decided that the menu would be a light Spring lunch – and the best bit to start with Champagne cocktails (see the raspberry above!)
I could just…. get to work on my currency plan (I valued every one of my items in terms of coins and then every guest was given 5 points to choose items up to that value. Don’t worry if you don’t get – maybe it was a bit weird, but it worked and meant everyone chose what they wanted!!)
Archie’s Food not only cater for private and corporate events, they have a space for events above their office (kitchen that is open for the best coffee in Fulham!) so if you are wanting to do private event or launch – this might be just the place. The Halibut and Aubergine was an absolute taste sensation!
The lovely Susie Babington Gardens styled my studio starting with a beautiful arrangement of white orchids on a side table (aka my deep freeze!)
She then turned her hand to creating a stunning country garland to run across the table.
I love her upmarket style and it was a joy to watch her with her floristry scissors snipping away effortlessly creating such wonderful arrangements.
If you are looking for a florist for an event, to gift someone a bunch, garden design or want to check out her new ‘Unreal’ range – a very deceptive faux flowers.
Here are a few snaps of the room. I had areas for earrings and necklaces, cuffs and key rings and bag and bag straps.
As many of the bloggers and stylists were off to sunnier chimes in Easter, the beach cover ups and clutches were big hits!
The items not he lower rails are detachable fake collars – not shirts for kids btw!
One of the most popular items were the funky sunglasses – a few inspired by Gucci and Victoria Beckham!
A huge thank you to all the ladies who headed down to the countryside for a day out – perfect for International Women’s Day! Head over to my Instastories to see who was there!
So if you are off somewhere warm, need a gift for a pal or just need to update your look now the weather is warmer, please have a look at my new website – my mission is to sell items that you can’t find elsewhere so you don’t look like everyone else, all at a good price and of course with a dash of colour, tassel or sparkle!
Have a great day,
Lots of love
