Since stocking the beautiful range of vintage fascinators, hair combs and birdcage veils from Chameleon Designs, I’ve gone quite mad on vintage, and feathers in particular. I jumped online to search for feathers, and began to learn a new vocabulary – ostrich ‘blondines’ and ‘pinchers’ to name a few. Having purchased a stunning range of feathers, I began experimenting, and have come up with some gorgeous vintage designs that will be up on The Wise Bride’s website soon.
At the top of this post is a 1920s inspired pillow box with a cute diamante and pearl brooch and a white ostrich ‘pincher’.
This cute little bomboniere once again uses the Trapunta box (I’m mad about these boxes with their diamond embossed detail) with a silk flower, black ribbon and ostrich pincher. I’ve also designed one with a coffee coloured flower and ribbon.
And then I got really carried away and started designing a silk flower and feather bouquet. Whilst not a trained florist, I love floral design and created all of the bouquets for my own wedding. I haven’t quite finished it (ran out of flowers) but here’s a pic of where it’s at. I’m hoping to add these to The Wise Bride’s website for sale as well.
