On Sunday 23rd August Oopsie Daisy Flowers & Gifts exhibited at the Anvil Hall in Gretna for the annual wedding fayre. The Anvil Hall was a former catholic church built in 1917 which its current owner rebranded into a wedding venue for anyone who wished to be married in one the countries most romantic locations.
Before attending the event I had to decide what kind of designs I wanted to show, I usually like to present a mixture of styles and designs. As it was located in Gretna I knew I wanted something with a Scottish focus. So I designed a bridal bouquet with red roses and gerberas with blue thistles finished with tartan ribbon! It got lots of attention and lots of admiration.
I also designed a colourful bouquet to contrast the Scottish bouquet, using peach roses, pink gerberas, purple alliums and lilac asters. When it came to creating table decorations I mixed modern, simple arrangements with traditional country styles, such as a tall modern lily vases, a rustic jug of flowers a simple wine glass display and a jar of flowers for the 'just picked' look.
It was lovely meeting other exhibitors as well as talking to all the brides and grooms. Now to plan my next fayre at The Shepherd's Inn Sunday 29th August.
