Great Wedding Decor & Gift Ideas from Kathleen Rose
Kathleen Rose was created by Emma Macri-Waller in 2013 after her family encouraged her to take a step into selling her beloved creations.
So much has happened since then, but at the core she loves selling her products at fairs and shows around the UK, where she actually gets to meet with people face to face. For Emma the best part about selling at fairs and shows, is being able to really see and feel the enthusiasm and excitement when someone likes a product.
For the future, she is hoping that Kathleen Rose will go from strength to strength, while Matt (Emma's partner), hopes it will eventually move into a little studio instead of dominating the house, especially in the run up before a fair!
Emma shared the beginnings of Kathleen Rose with us recently, as well as sharing some fab ideas for wedding gifts. Don't miss Emma's stall at the next HBBS at Penton Park, this Sunday 18th May, 11-2!
How did Kathleen Rose begin?
I have always had a thrill at being able to find beautiful items that are otherwise homeless, forgotten or uncared for. Being able to take these neglected items and breathe a new lease of life into them, turning each one into a product which can become a treasured and loved part of someones' home. This is where my first product, Jelly Mould Candles, started and was the beginning of Kathleen Rose. But being a self-confessed crafter, my mind is never far away from a new creation and I decided to start adding to my collection on Kathleen Rose shortly after.
We love giving our brides wedding styling and decor ideas - how could they use Kathleen Rose products on their big day?
Currently being an excited bride to be, I (like so many others) want my wedding to be unique, where every detail has been carefully and thoughtfully chosen, not something that has been seen a 1,000 times over, not a "for all" box standard wedding but also within my budget! At Kathleen Rose you will find a beautiful selection of handmade wedding decor for your big day, as well as wedding favour ideas and items that will remind you of your special day all with a vintage touch and with the possibility of custom made orders to your specific requirements.
What's you're favourite wedding look/theme at the moment?
Of course its vintage all the way for me (did you guess?) with a load of romance and sparkle thrown in. I am in love with all the soft colours at the moment and I think fragrance is very important. Fragrances remind us of happy memories or moments in life, trying to combine this in your day like in your bouquet, floral arrangements or scented items are a must.
