Images from the Tatton Park Flower Show

Well I’m back following a beautiful and hot weekend in Cheshire, visiting the Tatton Park Flower Show with my husband.

Words can’t quite describe all the wonderful array of ‚  floral arrangements and show gardens we saw, so I hope you enjoy the images I’ve included above, and if you want to see what ideas I’ve taken away with me and incorporated into my own stand, then please do come along to the Ayr Flower Show which is less than 2 weeks away now.

Wedding Ideas for Ayrshire’s Creative Planner

Wedding Ideas Hand-bag Size Magazine

I’ve recently subcribed to the Wedding Ideas Magazine, as I find it a very handy ‚  bag-sized publication packed full of Wedding ideas.

I would recommend it to each and every bride, mother of the bride and ‚  bridesmaid, to allow them to easily see what’s possible and to get their mind’s thinking about what they want for the engaged couple.

It’s important to me that my Clients can visualise how their day will look, and so I can use the Wedding Ideas Magazine to offer images and extracts, and show how I can adapt these initial ideas and ‚  create exactly what they are dreaming of.

The Wedding Ideas Magazine is a monthly publication, and can be purchased in the shop or on-line.

  • contain ‚  a selection of Suppliers’ promotion materials (particularly for those who have provided help and support to my exhibition)

If you want to meet me and understand more about what Sarah’s Creative Occasions can do for you, then come along to the Ayr Flower Show.

Ayrshire’s Special Occasions at Enterkine House

Enterkine House by Ayr

Sarah’s Creative Occasions has decided to extend our News Blog to include a “Feature of the Month”, and for July we have chosen the venue for all Special Occasions, Enterkine House.

We were introduced to Louis, the Manager, just recently when we took a drive out to the country to see their new luxury Marquee, which can cater for up to 200 guests. ‚   It’s a permanent marquee, and the first of its kind in Ayrshire. ‚   ‚  The marquee provides a tranquil and beautiful ambience, with high quality facilities.

Enterkine House can also host up to 70 guests, exclusively yours for the ceremony in either the Garden Room or on the front lawn, both with stunning views over the estate. ‚   Those staying over can be accommodated within the House, nearby Kirk House on the estate ‚  or in their new Woodland Lodge.

For those wishing to celebrate a Special Occasion, Enterkine House is one of the most elegant venues you will find in Ayrshire. Beyond the main reception is a grand piano and log fire, surrounded by beautiful soft furnishings. ‚   There is a private dining room for your party, and adjoining library to serve your pre-dinner drinks.

Many friends and colleagues have been to Enterkine House ‚  and have told stories of their sumptious meal and the ‚  finest dining. ‚   If you wish to know more ‚  and experience the splendour of Enterkine House ‚  contact Sarah’s Creative Occasions now.

Trade Stand Structure for Ayr Flower Show

Eikon Graphics near Kilmarnock

I have found a local company, Eikon Graphics, ‚  that is going to build me a solid structure to enclose the rear of my Trade Stand at the Ayr Flower Show next month.

It will be black as planned, and it will be high enough to contrast with the colours of my rose arch decoration, and also to enhance both the corner shelving and the displays I have created for the side tables.

Less than one month to go now ….

Sarah’s Creative Occasions T-Shirts!

Sarah's Creative Occasions T-Shirts

Here’s a shot of the white ‚  T-Shirt I’ve designed for myself to wear at the upcoming Ayr Flower Show which ‚  I’m participating in. ‚   I used the T-Shirt Studio to select a style of top, colour and decoration.

The front of the T-Shirt has my logo and floral image from my website, whilst the back of the T-Shirt ‚  displays my contact details.

Ayrshire’s Balloon & Party People

The Balloon and Party People are a business based in Crosshouse, Ayrshire who create stunning balloon decorations for all types of celebration, and in all manner of forms including:

  • Tall balloon table centres tied with spirals of flowing ribbons
  • Arches of balloons to frame a top table, a venue ‚  entrance or ‚  a Wedding ‚  ceremony
  • Signature balloon designs that contain lots of smaller ‚  balloons, ‚  and when burst, explode into the air falling ‚  with handfuls of flutter fetti

The Balloon and Party People will be exhibiting a couple of designs on my trade stand at the Ayr Flower Show next month, so please do come and see what our local suppliers can offer.
