Entrepreneurs have a certain spirit- I have been so lucky to meet so many and to be one myself with Polka Dot Bride. There’s a tenacity, a drive, an imagination and a certain sparkle that comes along with it. I love organisations like Kiva (who i have supported for quite awhile) who enable those in poverty stricken countries to live their own dreams.
By writing this post, I’m hoping it can help Jasmin get her project off the ground and that many women will be able to experience the joy of running a business and escape the poverty cycle.
Used as a really special touch as part of your reception it invokes an air of the gentility of days gone by. Perhaps it brings back happy memories of your grandparents or other older relatives and could be used as a nod to these special people.
Available in decanters, compotes, cake stands, glass vases with frilly edges, pitchers and many other containers, they would look really pretty grouped together on your tables filled with voluptuous red or white roses or peonies, or with dainty old fashioned bouquets. A variety of bowls and cake stands would look beautiful on a dessert table filled with luxurious sweet treats.
Tall banquet lamps on tables with their glass shades graduating from ruby through to clear or white glass would cast a soft glow. One word of warning – put these special pieces away from the dancing action. It would be a shame to have these old pieces break on your special day.
