Our Summer Garden Party continues to be a fantastic day out for everyone involved, and we’re excited to take you on a behind-the-scenes tour of this year’s event!
The day kicked off early for the fabulous team, arriving first thing at the beautiful Mallory Court hotel to get everything ready. The morning flies by every year as we set ourselves to creating fabulous jewellery displays and serene browsing areas.
Designers and representatives arrived throughout the morning to prepare their displays, and we had the pleasure of chatting to them as the event drew closer, even getting an exciting first glimpse at brand new collections. We’re very privileged to have so many designers who enjoy getting involved with the Garden Party – we met Andrew from Azuni, Wendy from The Branch, Amanda from Trollbeads, Mikayla from Lola Rose and Chloe Moss and her mum from ChloBo, to name but a few. Needless to say, we were all very excited!
And how can we forget the fun of sneaking off to one of Mallory Court’s incredible rooms to change into our dresses and glam up fabulous style!
Of course the real excitement started when everyone arrived and the event began. Guests were greeted with a fabulous warm welcome and a glass of Pimm’s, and there was time for everyone to relax, chat to the designers and get a feel for the collections we had on display throughout the hotel.
After we’d all had a good look around, everyone headed to Mallory Court’s beautiful garden and terrace area to hear Jo Stroud’s welcome and introduction to the event. This is always a great chance to get an insight into how Jo chooses new collections for fabulous, and to find out what fabulous is all about.
One of the highlights of the event always follow’s Jo’s welcome – lunch! Guests were treated to a wonderful three course spread from Mallory Court’s Michelin starred restaurant, and after desserts and coffees some of our new collections were modelled by the fabulous girls, while the designers introduced their jewellery to the guests.
After lunch came the other highlight of the day, which is of course shopping! The sun was out for what proved to be a relaxing, enjoyable afternoon of browsing, trying on everything that caught our eye, and finally choosing our favourite new pieces to treat ourselves to. And to top it all off, each guest received a special fabulous goody bag on their way home.
Thank you to all of our guests and to everyone who helped make this such a wonderful day – we can’t wait till next year! And don’t forget… grab your tickets early, because this event is always an early sell-out.
