Hello Mildred & Co

Botanical Styling by the ever competent Annie O & Red Creative of Studio 46 Delicious cake by the sweetheart that is Bluebells Cakery Photos by yours truly.

Mildred & Co opened their doors this week, their showroom is here.

And it is pretty bangin’ if you ask me.

Setting up shop in a beautiful converted Mechanics garage. Mildred & Co hold brands such as Citta Design, Bluebellgrey, CC Interiors, D.L & CO, Form & Fable, General Eclectic, Joseph Bently and so many more. As well as art work from the talented Evie Kemp, Bailey Collins, Kelly ThompsonHydrangea Ranger to name a few.

Milly and her girls have created a carefully curated posse of generally beautiful things. It all began when Milly saw a gap in the wedding registry market. A space for a one stop shop with range of beautiful yet functional items. And I can say, when I got married 5 years go, I definitely could have done with Mildred & Co.

Well done Milly, Well done girls. You are champs.

Until next time.BlackbirdBLOG signature
