Aladdin’s Cave

The Reed Gift Fairs in Melbourne and Sydney offers an opportunity for wholesalers to show case the latest trends in imported and locally made products. It is always a source of inspiration for our stylists to see what’snew in the marketplace and then use their creativity to adapt it to an event.One of the newest products that took our interest this year was seed lights.

Small and more delicate than fairy lights, they add a touch of romance to our styling. Use them in hanging glass terrariums in place of tealights, and as they are battery operated they will stay alight until the end of the event.

They can also be used in delicate floral arrangements, as they are very light and don’t weigh down flowers as fairy lights do.We now have 30 sets of these ready and waiting to light up your next event.

The Gentlemen’s Bucks

Step aside brides to be, the Groom Shower is here.

No longer do brides just get to have all the fun and get the gifts. It’s now the grooms turn. Run along the same lines as a bridal shower, the groom shower is a get together for the grooms friends and family.

Don’t worry gents, the bucks night isn’t dead. But you might want to have a civilised event that caters for all your good friends and family. It could be a cigar and scotch evening, a pool and darts night whatever your fancy the key point about this new trend is it can include everyone, even your future father in law.

Of course, the guys don’t want it called ‘a shower’ so link it to a theme that suits the groom’s interests. A stock the bar party, sporting interest party or tools for the garage party are a few suggestions that Events With Distinction can style for you.

Illawarra Wedding Expo

The next Illawarra Wedding Expo is coming up on Sunday 27th September. This is your chance to see some of our creative ideas in action and to have a chat about your upcoming wedding plans.

We will be showcasing a few of our main themes so whether you want rustic, glam,vintage or French our unique ideas will inspire you. As always, if your wedding is booked with us within 7 days after the expo, you receive 15% discount. Don’t forget we also style bridal showers using a theme or your choice of colours.

Be sure to come down and see us and start planning your perfect day.

Bonjour mon amies!

Our imported French items have arrived at last. These bespoke items, available only through Events With Distinction are both distinctive and versatile.The champagne box would look beautiful filled with flowers for a romantic look or add some tortured willow sticks to get a rustic feel.

The blackboards are perfect to display your wedding or event menu, or disguise the ‘offres’ written at the top with a flower garland or fabric draping, then use as a welcome sign or table name display. I love the little bird coat hook which I will be using in our French Provincial theme wedding (January 2016 ) as a display for flowers in glass terrariums with seed lights.
