Little Botanica are guest posting today…. and it’s a perfect hen party idea guyzzzzz…. _______________________________________________________________________________________________ Here at Little Botanica we are always over the moon to host a Flower Crown Hen Party for one of our beautiful brides-to-be at our railway arch workshop in Tradeston.    Bridesmaid Gillian contacted us back in January to arrange a flower related Hen Party for flower loving Bride-to-Be Gemma. It was decided that flower crowns were the perfect choice, something that all of the Hens could wear as their party continued on to dinner in Glasgow’s west end (and hopefully a lot of good old silly dancing too!!). As the hen party date neared and the Little Botanica team grew excited, we decided upon beautiful bright colours for the girls and a selection of special white flowers exclusively for Gemma. On the party day we welcomed 15 lovely hens into our light filled workshop! The afternoon started with a demonstartion of wiring techniques and construction methods for crowns. Then, with a glass of fizz in hand and a glamorous Little B pinny on, the ladies got stuck in. Guided by Kim, Hayley, Jenni and Elaina the hens made quick work of selecting their blooms from an array of colourful favourites from the buckets, and got on to wiring.  Now, as we are really very […]


Ever fancied your hand at some fancy hand lettering? Hey, nows the time!  Here’s Brahmin Lettering Co telling you all about their modern calligraphy workshops .. starting again towards the end of the Summer : Caitlin’s modern calligraphy workshops are a fun and informal two-hour introduction to pointed dip pen calligraphy, perfect for brides-to-be, bridesmaids, mums and anyone else helping with wedding planning. Workshops start with an introduction to the tools and how to use them, including assembling the calligraphy pen, using inks and understanding ink flow and pressure. You then move onto how to make basic shapes and strokes, gradually building towards creating letters and words, using Caitlin’s sample modern calligraphy alphabet as a guide. By the end of the workshop you should be more confident and ready to dive into adding all those special handwritten touches to your wedding! Each attendee receives their own calligraphy starter kit to use at the workshop and take home with them afterwards – including a beautiful personalised clipboard.   Caitlin currently runs workshops in Glasgow’s MANY Studios and various locations in Edinburgh.
