Darling, Oh I say, How frightfully charming…..a Knitted Royal Wedding.

Posted by Fleur the Flower on April - 22 - 2011

I confess, I Love a good Royal Wedding. I love the sense of occasion, the pagentry, seeing Prince Will all grown up and the anticipation of what Kate will wear. Which is why my friends and I will be playing Ladies and High Tea-ing it for the Royal Nuptials. I think it’s my “British genes” upbringing even though I’m a Kiwi.

Here are some  [ Read More ]

You can really let your creativity shine. High Tea, gorgeous florals or old world regal – it all falls under the spectacular theme of Vintage.

Victorian Decoupage’ Flowergirl Wands

Posted by Fleur the Flower on February - 22 - 2011

I am generally underwhelmed when it comes to flowergirl paraphenaila (I haven’t even ventured into the world of pageboys yet!) I find alot of the things availble for flowergirls to be an afterthought, tacky (not in a good way) or sparce. So I decided to do something about it and create these Victorian Inspired Decoupage Wands. I have a love of all things Beautiful, Victorian and Vintage. I love how it sends  [ Read More ]
