Last week we hosted a Gatsby Inspired Accessory Making Workshop for Emily and seven of her friends at our Exmouth Market venue in London. The girls spent a lovely 3 hours with us enjoying vintage afternoon tea and producing very on trend 1920’s Gatsby-inspired necklaces and headpieces to complement their outfits to wear to The Candle Light Club’s Summer Ball. fascinator making london

As well as Emily’s hen party it just so happened to be her Birthday. Jing had secretly brought along a gorgeous cake made by Paul’s Bakery to celebrate the occassion. Our Glam Hatter Girls plated it up on our vintage china cake stand, added candles and served it at the table.Birthday celebrations at Glam hatters

It was a very emotional moment when her friends started to sing “Happy Birthday” as the other hen party in the room joined in with their amazing operatic voices. I was really quite moved!janie lawson glam hatters

During the workshop  the girls received full vintage hair and make-up to make them look fabulous for the Candle Light Club. It did give the experience a beauty parlour feel as the girls carried on creating their works of art as their hair set in hairclips and rollers!vintage hen party afternoon teaThis is Alex she’s responsible for making the girls look amazing. They ordered full hair and make-up to run alongside the headpiece making workshop.

The girls had the choice of making Gatsby inspired headpieces, necklaces or fascinators during their workshop. The hen below made a gorgeous pearl headpiece attached with silk ribbons. Emily made a pearl necklace stitched to a felt collar attached by silk ribbons.vintage inspired hen party

The girls who made necklaces brought headpieces with them and matched the necklaces to the hats using our extensive range of crystals, beads and sequins. Lots of hens match their necklaces to the hats they wear to the wedding or match their fascinators and headpieces to their wedding outfits. Giving hens the added bonus of not having to trawl the high street for matching wedding hats! Make your own fascinator and you can match colours exactly.gatsby hen partyEmily’s group brought bubbly with them and ordered a Glam Hatters’ mini cream tea which they were served on vintage china during the half time break and it kept them going till dinner. They then headed from our venue in Exmouth Market straight to The Candle Light Club for dinner and dancing.glam hatters at the candle light club Emily made the front page of The Candle Light Club’s Summer Ball pictures with their fabulous accessories and gorgeous outfits.glam hatter girlsGlam Hatters highly recommend The Candle Light Club, it’s super stylish, incredibly extravagant and as you can see in the picture of Emily below it’s a lot of fun. vintage fascinator making
