Twenty Thirteen–Friends, Fayres and Photos…

This year has been a busy one.  Not only with lots of weddings (features to follow later in the year once we’ve gathered pics) but also with lots of collaborations, a couple of press shots, launch hires and a Glasgow Wedding Collective Fayre.  I have popped an snapshot of these collaborations below.

Make Do and Mend - Fabulous Forties at Kelvingrove Museum

Cassandra, owner of The Stitchery Studio asked us to come down and set up a wee “vintage sewing salon” for her make do and mend sewing workshop on the Fabulous Forties themed day at Kelvingrove Museum.  We styled her sewing room with a vintage singer sewing machine and table, vintage style bunting, retro radio and some vintage linens and other props.

Little Botanica Tablescape

As part of the Glasgow Wedding Collective February Fayre, we were delighted to collaborate with Little Botanica.  After a creative session, Little Botanica really wowed us with their styling of the table using our old curiosity bottles and vintage tins as vases, vintage dinner plates as charger plates and topped off with our vintage champagne saucers.  We loved the relaxed feel of the table with the log cut-offs and loved Jenny’s addition of “famous place names”  Pretty funny!  We love these shots by GWC founders Christopher Currie Photography (also love their new site – you must check it!)


Balbirnie Vintage Open Evening

Claire was the Gramophone DJ, Our Vintage cups and saucers were used for welcome drinks, “afternoon tea” was displayed on our cake stands, Lou Lou Flowers used our vases stunning flower displays, Cherry on Top displayed her gorgeous cup cakes on our Vintage Three Tier Cake Stands and we had our vintage toys and games and typewriter and other props on show for the quirkier couples out there!

Ziggy Sawdust & Paper Aeroplane Pop up Shop

Jenny pointed me in the direction of Amy Dolan – owner of Edinburgh based furniture designer Ziggy Sawdust.  I have since become an avid follower on Pinterest and was delighted to be asked by her and Fiona of Paper Aeroplane to help with their cake display for their pop up shop running NOW (and only until 29th May – so hurry along!).  Go spot our cake stands!

 The Red Shoes - Tramway Production

We occasionally get odd requests for props – which we love – as a vintage sourcing challenge is right up our street!  However when Eira Szadurski emailed requesting old china (“the older, grubbier the better”) I knew there was going to be an interesting reason!  It turns out is for this exciting project – Red Shoes – created by Judith Williams - she is looking for items to dress the set.  I happily gave Eira the contents of our “damaged” stock (which I’ve been keeping back for a time such as this) and I can’t wait to see what she does with them!

The Red Shoes: Family Day is an interactive performance for the whole family on 2nd June 12-4.

Such a fab bunch of collaborations up our sleeve for the first six months of the year!  And we have some super exciting ones coming up in the next few months too. Watch this space! Until next time folks

Love Claire x
