With London Fashion week approaching this week we are all very excited to see what new colours and trends will be emerging for 2015.

Our ivory lace and hessain chair bows for vintage and rustic style weddings have been a great success since we showcased these at recent wedding fayres, events and studio appointments.

Blooming Marvellous – Chelsea Garden Show Inspiration

DSCF3249

Chelsea Garden Show 2014 was the place to be last month for floral inspiration and garden design.

Creative Director Nicola Briginshaw with Stylist Jill Newman visited last month to see what ideas and inspiration they could find for weddings and celebrations.

Roses at Chelsea Garden Show 2014

The creative juices were certainly flowing…there were hundreds of types of flowers on display in every colour imaginable, and the shapes and textures were out of this world.  The garden design and floral displays were simply breath taking.

Over the coming months we will be sharing photos from our visit along with ideas and tips for you to use for your wedding or celebration.

To get you started we thought we would share some of our vintage products which have been inspired by flowers.  For more information please do not hesitate to contact us at: info@fuschiadesigns.co.uk

Last Sunday we were invited to exhibit at the venues wedding fayre, and we had a great day. It was lovely to see how different events and weddings could use the space to suit customers celebrations.  From a classic wedding, something more funky or even a vintage tea party.

There was a vintage feel to the wedding fayre and Fuschia dressed two tables.  We dressed one in violet which had a more modern feel and our second table display was Vintage Lace inspired for a vintage afternoon tea party theme.

A new trend for Weddings

We have seen over the past year a trend for some brides wishing to give gift favours as an alternative to sweets.  So to assist with this, Fuschia has some new wedding favours which are just gorgeous.  Mini hand creams, lip balms and bath bombs, these are really lovely gifts for ladies favours.

Great for favours and gifts for friends and family.

The new gift favours we have mentioned make a really nice vintage favour as the packaging is in pastel colours with a vintage feel to it.
