Project: Joint 40th birthday party

“We wanted a fun and glamorous party for family and friends. Donna was absolutely fantastic and her ideas were beyond anything I’d have ever imagined! Donna was so good at understanding us, and got a real feel for our passions.  She even commissioned a designer to create the perfect imagery for our table plan, menus and table cards. The decor included large spherical balloons in metallic tones with clever use of copper piping, fabric and candles which really complemented both the room and the party atmosphere we wanted to achieve. Donna sourced everything, liaised with the venue and suppliers and had everything all organised and under control. I am normally a control freak but I felt totally comfortable handing everything over, knowing it was in safe hands. On the day of the party, Donna was there from dawn until dusk decorating and overseeing everything. All I had to think about was getting ready. I think the nicest thing was seeing how much Donna genuinely loves what she does, it was clear she was happy to see it all come together some could enjoy. Thank you!”

Project: Seasonal dining table setting

“I enlisted the help of Donna to make my Christmas dinner party table look beautiful. My brief was completely open, all I gave her was a picture I’d found on Pinterest of a suspended branch-like light fitting which had inspired me. Not only did she research my light fixture so she could create a bespoke, statement piece of floristry but she also noted all the colour tones to complement my interior and selected my favourite foliage, eucalyptus. She worked like an artist adding each stem to create a wintery scene that sat above the dining table, she brought some table top accents and creative styling ideas that only a true creative would have in their armoury. The result was stunning, everyone fell in love with my dining area. I’d highly recommend Donna and will be using her expertise in the future.”
