In August Cabbages & Roses celebrated its first wedding, Kate Strutt married Christopher Howells.


We would like to thank Pennard Orchardfor so kindly lending us three beautiful tipis.  They set up three giant structures in the beautiful garden of Brook Cottage to act as temporary homes for the 12 bridesmaids, attendants, friends and Violet Buchanan who performed miracles with hair and make up.   It was a perfect and wholesome solution to lack of bed space in the house.

 

As one of the of the bridesmaids I snuggled up before, during and after all the festivities in one of the four beds in my tipi, dressed beautifully in Cabbages & Roses bedlinen and we were each given a set of bath towels in our Hatley print.

It was hands down the best camping experience I have ever had. Even the rain pattering gently on the canvas couldn’t put me off .

Rian,

Cabbage and bridesmaid xx

Sofa so Good

August 28, 2010

Kate (Christina’s daughter and C&R business development) has been moving house recently and decided that the huge blue sofa we have been storing in our warehouse would be prefect for her new living room. We all jumped to our feet to join in and help move it. None of us could have known it would take 6 women to move through the warehouse’s narrow walk way, negotiating around other pieces of furniture and general warehouse junk. Finally once out of the warehouse it was a matter of getting it round the corner.

See below for our obvious debate over size and weight.

After some deliberation, we left the sofa where it was to be collected and relaxed for a moment with an ice lollie or two.
