Cha, cha, cha changes! In business & in life…

It is my pleasure to finally make a very exciting announcement!

As some of you may know, my family is expecting a stork to drop by our house in just a few weeks. Therefore, over the past few months, when my belly has been growing bigger than my bows, I have needed some help with my business’ venue dressing orders. The very talented Katey from Blue Orchid florist kindly agreed to be my savior. She took off with a BANG! Her extreme attention to detail (dare I say it) is equal to mine and I have had nothing but raving reviews from all my Brides whom she has helped in the past few months.

As baby’s due date got closer I came to the difficult decision that I wanted to take some time off to be 100% with my new baby, like I did with my 4-year-old son. So I approached Katey to see if she wanted to keep up the excellent work and expand Blue Orchid by taking over Elegant Twist venue dressing- after all it goes hand in hand with event floristry. Well, it turns out she caught the venue dressing bug (easily done) and she agreed this would be the perfect addition to her business repertoire! So the deal is done! Elegant Twist venue dressing is no longer and…

The Blue Orchid is now offering venue dressing services!!

I am so sad to let go of my beautiful, brides, sashes and centerpieces, but at the same time I am so happy because I know Katey, and her Mum Ann, will do an amazing job at maintaining the top quality products and excellent customer service that was at the forefront of all Elegant Twist practices. Plus, like myself, they pride themselves on providing high standards of style execution and professionalism. So I am confident my beloved business is in excellent hands.

I will still be running my Elegant Twist Blog and wedding inspiration website, albeit in between baby naps and changing nappies, and will be there 100% to help Katey & Ann in anyway I can. Then, once I can catch my breath (in say 6-9 months), I will be back offering some amazing business services.

Thank you so much to all the brides, suppliers, helpers and friends that have supported my venue dressing venture over the past 3 years- you mean the world to me. Now onto pastures new for me and for the amazing Blue Orchid Venue Dressing!
