Our beginnings as a simple linen & chair cover supplier back in 2008 has flourished to now include a whole range of amazing items to make your event extra special! After opening a West End premises in 2011 we then moved on to a much bigger space just outside the West End in 2018 – giving customers an opportunity to see our range first-hand and talk to us one-on-one (something we know many of our customers really appreciate).
In addition to our team of events staff, we also have an experienced florist on hand to assist with all floral enquiries – whatever your enquiry, we are always just a short phonecall, email or visit away to answer any questions!
