Feathers, vintage and 1920s glamour

1920s pillow box

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’.

Flower box

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.
