Happy New Year to all our readers and followers! We're back to sharing news on our blog now after a break over the festive season and are excited about all the fantastic events we have coming up in the first part of 2017. Kicking off the event calendar for this year is Stitch & Craft Fest which will be returning to the Crowne Plaza Hotel at Shaw's Bridge, Belfast on Sunday 5th February. We will have lots of news on this over the next few weeks but for now we would just like to introduce you to a few creative folks who are either new to our fairs for 2017 or who joined us towards the end of 2016............
Annie and John from Rose Cottage Events believe the only thing you should be worried about on your wedding day, is saying 'I Do'. They strive to make your special day as beautiful and effortless as possible with those final special elegant little touches, and take pride in going that 'Extra Mile' so you don't have to.
A small family run business, Rose Cottage Events have one goal - to ensure that you receive a first class service right from the initial point of contact right through to the end result. You deserve nothing less!
Rose Cottage Events have one of the largest selections of beautiful original Postboxes in Ireland, and also a vast variety of other lovely vintage props to hire which are suitable for any occasion. The beautiful postboxes come in red, white, green and ivory. All are originals, and come with a lovely personalised insert for you to keep as a memento of your day. They are also supplied with one key only to ensure you have complete peace of mind that all your messages and gift envelopes received from your guests are kept safe and secure, so all you have to worry about is having a wonderful memorable day....whatever the event.
You can also hire a candy cart, chocolate ferris wheels and LED bases, wishing trees, a Ferrero Rocher heart tree, vintage step ladders, birdcages, lanterns, steamer trunks and much more. Some of the other props available include a fabulous selection of original vintage typewriter’s dating from 1906 to the early 1930’s, gorgeous original ostrich feather fans dating back to the early 1900’s, a beautiful original telephone dating back to the 1920’s/30’s, and an original General Electric fan dating back to the late 1800’s/early 1900’s.
Rose Cottage Events offer a number of beautiful original vintage step ladders which have been lovingly restored by John and Annie, two sets of which are flat topped so they can be used to hold their unique postboxes. All of the step ladders can be used as seating plans and dressed to suit your theme, creating a strong focal point. They can also supply message boards which your guests can peg little personal messages on.
You can opt to collect any hire items yourself, or choose the Set Up option, whereby the lovely Rose Cottage folks will liaise with your venue to ensure the display is in keeping with your chosen theme. And they are also very keenly priced, so you can have a stress free day without breaking the bank!
There are also beautiful original steam trunks available which date from the 1920’s and 40’s, and which have also been lovingly restored. These can be used for seating plans, letters & messages, and of course as a lovely piece of art to have as a focal point for your occasion. There are also some smaller original vintage suitcases which can be used in the same way, or filled with beautiful flowers for a pretty and nostalgic display.
Annie and John want to make your day special and unique to you, and will ensure that everything is in place, right down to each and every last little detail. They will take the time to listen to you and co-ordinate your requirements to your colour scheme and theme, placing great importance on helping you achieve the very best experience for your special day.
No matter how large or small your event is, you can be sure that Rose Cottage Events will help make it a memorable one. For more information please visit the Rose Cottage Events website and follow on Facebook / Twitter / Instagram.
