Vintage Style Hire's "Bit of A Do"

On Thursday I was delighted to be invited to Vintage Style Hire's Bit of a Do in Kate's new barn. From the outside the barn looks like any other "industrial" style barn with a very business like door but as soon as you stepped in the door you could easily forget you were even in a barn (apart from the slight chill) and we were greeted by this gorgeous pushbike with WELCOME bunting. 

Gin & tonic was served in delicate teacups and elderflower cordial in jars with stripy straws.

Tea cup in hand we then got to wander round the barn and marvel at all the "rooms"

Wherever we looked there was something that caught the eye, whether it was a little artful collection, a sweetie corner or beautiful flowers from Violets & Velvet.

I heard a lot of people commenting that Kate has the knack of making it look as if it had all effortlessly come together.

Now this all looks casually thrown together in an informal way but look closer and you will see that every item has been placed in exactly that position for a reason. 

Then the guests started to play with the photo booth and it was discovered that if you give Kate's friends a couple of gins, some masks and a photo booth you can have them in fits of giggles for a very, very long time!

It was a wonderful evening and so lovely to see Kate's new barn full of all her unique props. We even got a goodie bag when we left. Thank you Kate and best of luck in your new space and I hope you get to share your vision with lots of lucky customers.
