This little post about our birthday celebrations is really late so I must apologise for that … it’s all to do with the ‘time’ thing and how it can play tricks on you! I actually can’t believe it is five years since I first opened the amazing doors of Heart Gallery to you all; it really doesn’t seem that long! In the same respect I thought our party to celebrate five years in business was only last week…..it wasn’t!
Lots of thought and careful planning goes into an exhibition at Heart Gallery and the Birthday one was such a celebration of achievement it had to be right so the contents of these little packages from Lisa were just perfect. Lisa cut, snipped, stitched and styled the bunting then delivered it wrapped like a birthday present and I was over the moon with it.
The weather the week of our party wasn’t that great and the theme for FIVE AND FABULOUS was a Garden Party! However, we kept our spirits up with positive thoughts and were blessed with a dry afternoon and evening in the end so we were all happy bunnies….the Makepiece models for the fashion show were happy little sheep!
We all got glammed up.
We chatted to customers and some of our makers.
We showcased work from new and emerging UK makers alongside new ranges from our ‘old faithfuls’.
We lit the lanterns that we had made and hung them from the trees in the garden when it started to get dark.
We all had a jolly good time at Five And Fabulous Exhibition and after 5 hours on my feet it was time to call it a night and head off home.
I really want to say a big thank you to all those who came along to celebrate with us and a big sparkly hug to Sarah Mason at Zebra Photography for doing a fab job capturing the magic of the day ❤
