On a lovely Spring morning, Susan and I had the chance to visit the First Comes Love fair, held on the beautiful grounds of St Georges College. Upon arrival, we were greeted with the most delightful goodie bag containing not only the information of all businesses who took part but also a selection of letterpressed goods too. Walking through the grand rooms of St Georges College, we were greeted with friendly faces, all eager to show us their goods and talents. From fragrant floral arrangements to elegantly styled dinner tables to a wide selection bow ties, everywhere you looked was a filled with magnificent styling.
For more amazing photos of the event and perhaps even some inspiration for your own wedding or party, have a look at the lovely stills taken by the Angela Higgins and Le Fanciulle.
With hours spent at the piano learning meticulous notes and ensuring accuracy in preparation for concerts, little time has been left to go out and enjoy the spring weather (however, now that I think of it, the heavy rains and wailing winds have made it a tad difficult to do so. Perhaps between you and I, that can be my pitiful excuse). Unfortunately, writing too has been off the agenda. But do not despair, here I am offering you a few events to check out if you happen to be in the area or are planning a delightful weekend:
discover: explore what Chinatown has to offer and come along to the City of Vincent’s Chinatown Discovery Tour this Saturday morning (21 September 9.30am – 11.30am)
festival: pick up some freshly cut wildflowers as a part of the Kings Park spring festival or if you have young ones, bring them along to the Fantastic Faraway Festival, a spring festival just for them! (21 September 10.30am – 02.30pm)
art: take a peek at how artists view our city and visit the Black Swan Prize Art Exhibition (20 – 30 September)
music: get your music fix at this free Appalachian Spring Concert by featuring of Perth’s top classical musicians (Sunday 22 September 3.30pm – 5.00pm)
eat: visit newly opened small Bar de Halcyon (read a great review here)
Have a great weekend!
