Last week we were delighted to be taking part at the Country Living Christmas Fair at the Glasgow SECC where we were exhibiting amongst 300+ stall holders all showcasing wonderfully irresistible creations. From homewares to fragrances, fruity gins to stocking fillers, Christmas decorations to chocolate temptations, the diversity of the treats on offer was truly amazing.
We were exhibiting our Mairi Helena soft furnishings and accessories collection within the newcomers area of the show where we had our luxury velvet feather cushions on display.
A particular favourite was our Emerald Thistle Velvet Cushion, picked by the public for it’s rich turquoises and deep blue colour palette.
The popularity of this cushion has triggered my next blog post in my ‘mood board masterclass session’:
