Petal and Pen

Why not embrace your inner woodsprite and commission Petal and Pen to craft your own tailor-made headgear, wreath or table decoration, perfect for all those festivals/summer parties coming up soon?

A boutique set up, it was started by a mother of three who was prompted to make something more permanent out of the inevitable “it’s all over” feeling at the end of parties as the bouquets, button holes, cake decorations and wreaths are binned.

Working to commission, each piece of tissue paper is carefully bleached and hung out to dry on the washing line, rendering the floral palette very soft and muted. Each petal is then individually cut by hand, and twisted to create the desired flower. These are then wrapped around a floral wire.

Do have a look at their calligraphy too (see it here) which is perfect for invitations and place settings.  And for more details on this and other interiors ideas, see stylist Miranda Vedral’s blog here.
