New hire packages – first up, Lace

Filed under: Hire Packages,Linens and Sashes — Tags: , , , , , , — Emma Wilson @ 10:05 am

We are in the process of getting a number of delicious new hire packages on our website.  You can glimpse a sneak peek of them here as we can’t wait any longer to share!

First up is our Lace package which consists of 80 lace chair sashes and 10 lace runners or round lace overlays.  Our lace is the real deal (not the polyester type sometimes seen) and has a wonderful drape.  The chair sashes work as drapes or bows.  The runners are approx. 3m long x 35cm wide and are available  in two types of lace, one of which matches the sashes and one which is a more delicate lace.  The lace overlays are 30” in diameter.  Cost to hire is £140.00 exc delivery (25% saving on cost if ordered separately).  We can deliver locally, send nationally or help with styling.

These items do have quite a busy Summer schedule already so do get in touch asap if you’d like to book!

A taste of the last fete...Excitement is building for one of our favourite events of the year this weekend.  We are honoured to join the region’s finest wedding industry talent at The Wedding Fete, which takes place on Sunday 2nd March 2014 at The Old Parsonage, on Stenner Lane in Didsbury, South Manchester.

Open to the public, with free entry from 11am to 4pm, the area’s leading wedding industry suppliers will once again be on hand to offer advice and expertise to couples – you could easily plan your whole wedding in just one afternoon here!

As well as showing off all our beautiful vintage crockery and props for hire plus our range of handmade wedding favours  (plus a few vintage bits and pieces to buy so bring your pennies), we will also be styling a pop-up afternoon tearoom where you can enjoy a cuppa and a slice of cake for £3.  A limited number of luxury gift bags will be provided on entrance so do hurry along and grab one before they go.

Some of the wonderful exhibitors include our good friend Melanie James Bridal Boutique, The Flower Lounge, Lynette Page Make Up, the friendly duo at Dotmoxee Photography and the wonderfully talented Black Ribbon Designs for all your stationery requirements.  Do check out their handmade, personalised oh-so-pretty wedding hangers too.  There’ll be plenty of tasting opportunities for guests, as chocolatiers Cocoa-Cabana showcase their recently-launched wedding cakes, handmade chocolates and truffles; Didsbury ( and our) favourite The Cheese Hamlet offers alternative cake ideas and suggestions for cheese lovers; and creative experts at The Cheshire Cat Cake Company who design bespoke cakes, will have a range of sensational treats to choose from.

There will also be live music by singer/songwriter Gaina Williams – all in all, it sounds like a wonderful afternoon to us!

We will also be taking a few envious glances at “Bruce”, a converted chauffeur driven VW camper van from Great White Occasions – our dream to own one of these one day!

The Parsonage Trust is an absolutely stunning find so if nothing else do take the chance to have a nosy around it on Sunday – we really hope to see you there!
