Whats New in 2015 Part 2

In March we made some lovely decorations for Brothers Salon in Oxford for their Mothers Day window. The Aveda gift sets they were selling had a lilac theme and this time they needed decorations to fill a third of their window.

Originally we were planning to do giant lilac decorations, however after chatting it through with Carol in the salon, we settled on garlands in lilac on matching organza ribbon. I felt it needed to be pretty and delicate whilst still standing out from the the other side of the street and suggested we made the primroses 3 dimensional and two tone which really transformed the garlands in to somthing special.

To finish off the display we provided some  lilac butterfly confetti  and large flowers to accessorise the display.

The colour we used on the paper garlands matched the Aveda graphic perfectly.

A few weeks after Mothers Day we were in Oxford for the Literary Festival and noticed our garlands were still up in the window!

How pretty do these primroses look in lilac with  the magenta centres?

Can you see our paper buttercups nestling in the display?
