Recommended stylist for The Midland, Morecambe 



As a stylist for your event, I will work with you to create a vintage style that reflects your personality and celebration. I come from a creative arts and antiquarian background and with my love of design, vintage and collecting, I can create something that is both authentic and fun. I will try and source props and incorporate styling details to set your room apart including creating hand made bespoke items. No two Itsy Bitsy parties are ever the same. Whether you wish to have a pretty in pink baby shower, a golden and majestic anniversary party, a nostalgic seaside themed wedding, an Art Deco event, an Alice in Wonderland tea party, or a candlelight Xmas celebration I can advise and suggest on props.


What you get on bookings of £200 or above.

  • A free client meeting to view props.
  • A venue meeting where required.
  • Styling advice including links to Pinterest galleries and the creation of a collaborative Pinterest board.
  • Recommendations to local suppliers. 
  • The pre-design of prop centrepieces and styled areas with photos for your approval. 
  • The sourcing of additional props and creating handmade items where required. 
  • Setting up on the day, collection and packing.
