{Girl Crush Tuesday} The marvellous Maddie

We have some pretty hard girl crushes. These are the types of ladies that stamp their style on the world. They are the type of people that will always be remembered and little girls grow up wanting to be. They are women of substance. Women that make the world a better place. Happy Girl Crush Tuesday everybody.line4

Today we are saluting the brilliantly talented, creative genius that is Maddie Veitch from Ivory Rose Botanicals. 

Maddie is a local mama who is working hard for herself and her family. Not long ago she opened Ivory Rose Botanicals in George Street Bathurst and since that time has shown herself to be the front-runner in floral design.

Maddie will help with everything from a simple bouquet for your bestie, all the way up to your wedding arch super pieces. She doesn’t just sell flowers, she literally creates art.

Ivory Rose Botanicals also holds really fun classes in floral arrangements, everything from headpieces to flower centrepieces.

Plus, the totes best thing is rolling into her little studio and getting to hang out with Maddie and her beautiful little boys.

The Central Nest loves supporting local women working hard to make a difference and Maddie is certainly doing that. So, thank you Maddie for giving my little girls someone to look up to so they realise you really can strive to have it all.

Maddie and her team have a fantastic way of enticing the senses through enchanting floral arrangements and creations. What I love is that she seems to follow nature. She follows the art of letting nature be her guide and consequently ends up with floral arrangements unlike anyone else in town.

I ordered my sister some flowers this week and they were PERFECT!

Ivory Rose Botanical also offers fantastic flower crown parties so why not grab a couple of girlfriends and make some pretties.

{Locally Found} Stop. Its fairy party time

So this year for the first time we are having an actual real-life-hire-somewhere birthday party for the kindergartner.

She has a bunch of school mates and I nearly suffocate when I think of the idea of 15 screeching 5 and 6 year old girls inhabiting my house for a few hours on a Saturday. So, I needed some options.

Catering is hard, especially in this day when loads of kids have allergies or special requirements. It is also difficult to enjoy the day while trying to keep track of other people’s kids!

So, enter Bathurst City Community Club (or the BCCC).

They offer themed parties to suit your little miss or mister and all you have to supply is the cake.

bcccc

The friendly team will supply party bags, food, entertainment, drinks and games for your guests.

The totes best part though is they provide you with a host person that takes care of the little people!

BRILLIANT!

I am definitely excited and will report back after we have “the best party ever” – quote from my almost 6 year old.

If you need a party location give them a call and have a chat. Tell them The Central Nest sent you!
