Bye Bye 2014, Welcome 2015!

So, another year almost ended. I cant believe how quickly 2014 flew by and its hard to remember all that happened here at Jasmine Orchard Styling. I am now looking forward to a new year with new aspirations and a very exciting new venture for my business.

In 2015, Jasmine Orchard Styling will continue to style your parties, weddings, birthdays, events and work on photoshoots and editorial… but will also be embarking on the exciting journey of opening an online store selling styled collections of home accessories. Watch this space!

As a little acknowledgement and trip down memory lane, here are a few highlights from Jasmine Orchard Styling’s year in 2014.

The beginning of 2014 was spent running (not literally) around the UK to meet the lovely London team at Kreate and the B&Q team, liaising on the B&Q SS14 Press Launch and styling their launch in London.

I also had the privilege of being asked to collaborate on and write the text for an interiors book aimed at children, which would give the reader the opportunity to learn basics in design and  then design their own bedroom. Great fun, and hope to see it published one day soon with ivy press.

March and April highlights were styling a fab networking party for the wonderful Doily Days and Belles Events. Thanks to Velvet Storm for the photos; Having the honour to not only exhibit at but also style one of the rooms at the fabulous Most Curious Wedding Fair in London; and having some of my home styling featured in Real Homes Magazine (a beautiful property down the road from me in Brighton).

Summer months were filled with photoshoots, a fab 40th birthday party styling and weddings.I was also featured in the fantastic Mollie Makes magazine after meeting one of the team at A Most Curious Wedding Fair.

Images are as follows: A Festival inspired photoshoot I planned and worked on with talented photographer Sarah London Photography, which was later featured on none other than Rock My Wedding- view here; A 40th Birthday Party styled in the lovely Caribou Rooms in Brighton; and Mollie Makes feature in Handmade Wedding Magazine.

From April onwards I was also lucky enough to be asked to write a monthly column on interiors advice for the newspaper The Argus, in which I tried to give straight forward advice and tips on everyday home styling as well as ideas for parties and events.

From September onwards, weddings and party styling over, I have been working on my new venture of an online store and I’m afraid you’ll just have to wait for any images or clues about that.

My final highlight of 2014 was styling a really fun photoshoot for the talented Doris Loves who makes gorgeous light up letters to hire- we worked on a fun industrial style party idea with the lights, complete with party poppers and disco music!

Christmas Styling

Apologies for complete lack of input to my blog posts recently. Jasmine Orchard Styling has new exciting plans on the horizon, taking up most of my time!

So… just a little festive inspiration with some Christmas styling around the fireplace. I went with a more natural feel this year, taking inspiration from my lovely reeds (collected from Dorset last week) in a vintage glass bottle, bark candles, pine tree sections and of course a little bling with gold sparkly feathers.
