Our founder Sarah was the lucky one this month, with an invitation to the Royal Garden Party at Holyrood Palace in Edinburgh. In attendance was the Queen, Elizabeth II, along with Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward.
Under beautiful blue skies, Sarah wore a navy dress, with bespoke fascinator made by local lady Sharon Walker and accessorised with touches of pale blue and sunny yellow, including navy shimmer Shellac nails by Kayleigh McMillan.
Sarah enjoyed a refreshing drink, delicate sandwiches and perfectly round macarons in the tea tent and then watched the High Constables and Archers carry out their duties, before the National Anthem was performed to mark the arrival of the Queen.
She’s eternally grateful to her local community in Kirkmichael for arranging her invitation and here she is pictured above with the Palace in the background and secondly at the foot of the carpeted steps which her Majesty stepped down into the gardens.
Having re-joined the Committee of the Ayrshire Association of Business Women in February 2014, as their Events Organiser and Vice President, this week I’ve been hosting one of our event and I also got the opportunity to present an award.
On Tuesday, we held a joint visit with the Federation of Small Businesses and visited the University of the West of Scotland for a tour of their recently renovated Ayr campus, with networking over refreshments and followed by a seminar on making successful introductions.
I’m pictured here (left to right) with Ada Galloway, Transcribe UK (FSB Ayrshire Branch Secretary); Dougie Boatman, Scotplants (FSB Ayrshire Branch Chairman); myself, Sarah Plant, Sarah’s Creative Occasions (AABW Vice President); and Russell Campbell of UWS.
Thursday evening I attended the Young Enterprise Ayrshire Awards at the Gailes Hotel by Irvine and on behalf of the aabw, I presented an award to the Best Link Teacher, Tracy Allen of Doon Academy in Dalmellington. Tracy supported the Doon Academy company called Focus and Focus went on to win the Company of the Year 2014 award also!
Last week we were proud to be a part of Heather & Chris’s wedding day, by dressing their 2 wedding venues, Culzean Castle for their ceremony and Turnberry for their afternoon tea and evening dinner.
A few photos taken at Turnberry to share, enjoy. The next day my Client text to say “We had the best day ever, I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day. Thank you for being part of helping me achieve my vision. It was like something out of a Disney story!”
Ayrshire Wedding Planner, Sarah’s Creative Occasions, dressed and co-ordinated the wedding of Emma and Dave at the Seamill Hydro on Friday 4th April 2014.
