Get the look event decor: The Queens Royal Tea Party

As the queen celebrates her 60th jubilee, I realise that the Queen has to be the woman in receipt of the most flower arrangements in our time. Its a little bit exciting to share, that my Mum too gave the Queen a posy of flowers when she was a little girl. The certificate of merit sits on my shelf and the memory of my Mum telling me the tale: After presenting the posy, she curtsied and carefully stepped backward, still facing the queen as is custom, the Queen whispered to her ‘Don’t trip dear’.

So this weeks ‘Get the Look’ is inspired by Her Royal Highness Queen of Britain as we style a tea party pretty and pompous enough to set for a Queen!

Top Wedding Trends of 2013 – Mint

We have recently had a lot of custom requests for mint flavoured paperware…including garlands, notelets and tags…and why not? According to, the colour green symbolizes growth, harmony, freshness, and fertility: perfect ingredients for a wedding or baby shower.
As such, we recently made and listed in store our mint ombre sweetheart garland and it took off like a rocket, with a treasury within 12 hours on etsy and then this lovely inclusion on the 3D-Memoirs oh so sexy blog…

Look to 3D Memoirs as a source of inspiration and ideas related to beautiful and creative event decor for a variety of events, especially DIY events…and for lots of event styling eye candy…

Welcome to the house of red elephant creative

Well! Its been a few weeks in fast tracked education about the world wide web. Whilst I am pretty technically minded, particularly marketing wise  (my other ‘job’ is to web wrangle for a leading events journal), the growth in my business and the profile of ‘red elephant creative’ the message was clear — that I had to get serious about my blog…about a website for red elephant creative.

So, after some investigation, it was clear wordpress could take me there…..and here I will stay….for a bit…..I hope 🙂 and here I go on yet another learning curve to build a new house on the www, for red elephant creative.

Welcome, and enjoy….as we are inspired by the big gigs, and by the creativity of a world made and designed by hand and a range of fabulous minds…and as we draw from our imagination more fabulous creations for you to enjoy.
