buntil bunting workshop; royal wedding volunteers

i think it is in malaysia where the word buntil refers to vintage & collectable goods. being party responsible for the street bunting for this weeks royal wedding street party on our very own wilton way, of course our instincts are always to use vintage. as such, we have collected random pieces of material & with the help of claire from violet's cakes, we shall make them uniform & decorate the length of the street. this however is still a work in progress so violet cakes is hosting a buntil bunting workshop whereby we are asking for volunteers to help the process. every1 is welcome tomorrow 5pm 26th april ready to decorate!

wilton way royal wedding street party!

in conjunction with wilton way residents & business owners we would like to invite you to a community-led royal wedding street party on friday april 29th.

a group of e8 residents have successfully applied for council permission to host a communal street event whereby the community will come together in a friendly & relaxed family atmosphere. the royal wedding thus offers an opportunity to bring people together in an open-invitation picnic style day, encouraging participants of all political persuasion to join in by bringing their own food & drink & perhaps a table to link up the length of the street. 3 blocks of wilton way will officially be closed from elanor road & landsdowne drive crossroads.

of course there will be alot going on in the london fields area that day so swing by to enjoy some incidental acoustic entertainment, children activities & cultural events. the vibe will be 1 of a traditional east end feel resonating a 1950s sensibility. home owners are encouraged to open up their gardens for bbq's & make available radios & tvs to tune into the wedding to truly make a day of it. the wedding ceremony takes place at 11am so the idea is to come down early & get involved. the other side of the pillow will be responsible for street decorations & the bunting so we plan to reach out our followers for help with this & perhaps to contribute to our proposed window display! as such, lets get in the spirit of things & celebrate the royal wedding if for nothing more than an excuse to bring the east end together.

espadrille extension.

advance warning!
