I have just completed this lovely large project which was so much fun to be part of! I was in charge of the design for the festival, so anything at all visual came my way. I was in charge of design and also implementing the styling for The children's tent ( Little Dude's Den) , the outdoor living room cocktail bar, the 20 metre banqueting table, the WI tent, and The Kitchen Garden. I also had large scale props made for the event which were placed around the site. From visual boards and long lists, I went out and sourced furniture, hired props, and ordered many things from hundreds of balloons, to little bird cages. I sourced around 80 chairs for the long table with the help of Sue Ryder!
