Last week I had the opportunity to decorate for my pastor's wife birthday party. I had free hand with the décor so knowing it was going to be a garden party , I went with an enchanted garden, using different shades of purple and orange with moss and candles and some twinkly lights.
Totally not on the subject, but I wanted to share something.
I love the hole process that goes around decorating for an event/party. Brain storming ideas, all the DIY, putting every thing together and the smile of the one celebrated.
I think I mentioned before that I used to have an event planning business in Romania, together with my sister in low, we did mostly weddings. Moving to UK three years ago, I left that behind, thinking that I will never do that again, that there is no way for an immigrant to be able to do what they are really passionate about ( create, design, decorate ) in a foreign country, and the stories that you hear or read about, of people that do succeed are just exceptions, ideals that inspire the "little people" and give them hope not to give up, not to crumble and go back home.
When I imagined my life in UK, the thought that I will forever carry the " immigrant " label never crossed my mind, I think if I would have known , I wouldn't have left Romania. What still keeps me here is that God put me here, He put us here, He holds all the Earth, we are His children, I can live wherever He so wishes.
I some how fell back in to it, decorating for friends and sisters from my church.
This particular party gave me the push that I needed and decided to give it a go. I'm going to start my own event planning business.
I'm the only one in it. The budget?...I'm not sure I have one, I should ask my husband.
Supplies? For now, just stuff I have around the house that I got from charity shops, car boots or Ikea.
All I have is an add on Gumtree, oh and God on my side, so I guess I'm good to go. My strategy ? Work even for free .
