BLOG 30th April 2014

posted 30 Apr 2014, 12:03 by KM Design

AT LAST!  Our blog is up and running, it's been on the to do list for quite a while just waiting to find the time to do it. So with a big sigh of excitement here goes:-

I am hoping to update the blog once a week depending on how busy I am in the K M Design Studio, so forgive me if it takes me a little longer than a week between posts.

For those of you who do not know me and this may be your first visit to K M Design, let me introduce myself: my name is Val and I am the owner of K M Design. We mainly do wedding stationery but over the past few years have added most types of invitations for parties and christenings and in the last few months we have added gifts to our range. I also do flower arrangements mainly in silk, but I also do foam flowers, fresh flowers and wooden roses.  I have an NCFE qualification in floristry.

The aim of the blog is to keep you up to date on all the news, developments, designs and products here at K M Design and of course any gossip relating to the wedding industry.

In each blog I am hoping to share with you a little of the history of weddings for example when, how and why couples started sending out wedding invitations.

In the Middle Ages it was traditional for the Town Crier to announce the news of the day and that included any weddings taking place, so if you were in ear shot of hearing and you fancied it, you just went along. Can you imagine that today?  You wouldn't have any idea how many people would turn up, how many you would be catering for, and how stressful that would be! Still I expect weddings all those years ago were not like the weddings we see today:- probably the residents of the village or town were only a few hundred people, if that.

I will leave the next instalment of how and when paper invitations started for the next blog, otherwise there won't be any time to tell you about what's happening at K M Design headquarters.

Well, a busy start to the year, lots of invitations done and sent out to our lovely couples, - the weddings are fast approaching so 'on the day' stationery to do, looks like a few busy months ahead. Plus this year we have already done 50th Birthday Party invitations and Silver Wedding Anniversary invitations.

New Products we are adding a gift range for those special occasions, some of you may have seen them on our facebook page already, we are hoping to add these to our website soon.

Father’s Day is on Sunday 15th June for those of you who do not know. We have personalised mugs and chocolate bars, or we have our gift hampers, which start from £10.00. If you would like any of the personalised items, please order as soon as possible, as these can take between 7 to 10 days.

Well it’s time for me to sign off now and get back to finishing some orders; we have lots of new things coming up and some news about our new website.

It would be great to hear from you, if you get a moment let me know your thoughts on my first blog, or if there is anything you would like to know about any of our products please email me I would love to hear from you.

Bye for now!
