Around this time last year, we held host to some of our favourite bloggers and journalists from the world of interiors for our first ever Summer of Sweetpea event, and it was such a success that we had to bring it back for 2018! And what a perfect occasion to celebrate the launch of our newly refurbished showroom!?

This year’s event was bigger and better, with more gorgeous guests, more roomsets to explore, and our very own, brand new Willow’s Bar! We invited some of the biggest and best interiors bloggers, influencers and journalists in the country to celebrate with us.

Everyone was more than happy to tuck into the delicious pizza by the lovely guys at Dough & Deer, and The Libation Station were on hand to expertly craft a mouth-watering selection of delectable summer cocktails made with gin from Silent Pool. As well as food and drink, we also had the talented Stems & Bows ladies back to add their floral touch. The girls did an incredible job filling the showroom with truly amazing displays, including this fabulous flamingo which is literally dripping with gorgeous greenery.
