New BALLOONS hit Pearl and Earl yesterday… ready for the launch of our new party kits
I didnt have time to blow them all up (not enough puff!) but I thought you could still see their loveliness as they are… my favourites.. JUNGLE BALLOONS and the STAR RAINBOW pack
We have also packed a lot of BIG BALLOONS for weddings in the last month, and the favourite colours are BLUSH, IVORY and WHITE mixed together. (The colours lighten when the balloon latex is expanded). If you have any pictures of your big day – please let us know and we reward the best with vouchers.
Our tails and trims have been popular and we still style some bespoke creations for events and brides (like the 2 below)
Ready, Set… puff!
In Cross Stitcher this month – my column is was entitled WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE, as not content with owls and cute folksy fowls, designers are looking to the Jungle Greats for their latest inspirations
I love Markus Lupfers animal sequinned jumpers this season, whilst Stella Macartney has also added a bit of roar with her tiger prints
Stella Macartney Tiger Jumper £575 Liberty
The influence of mid century needlepoint is all around.. like this vintage lion cushion chart found on Etsy,by illkniterate, which you could use as a counted cross stitch pattern.
I love the alternative work of Susan from Red Gate Stitchery – and this cute PDF patchwork elephant is the perfect mix of pattern and silhouette.
Happy stitching x
