The Joy of Watercolor Book Launch

This week I celebrated the UK launch of my book and I have to say after my wedding it was probably the happiest evening of my life. I’m so lucky to have such incredible friends and family who made the evening so special. The Village Haberdashery hosted the party in their colourful modern craft shop and event space, Your London Florist provided the beautiful flowers, Kathryn from Wander For A While took photos on the night and  My Little Cake Tin made the most incredible sweet treats I have ever seen. Everyone who came  is so creative and kind, and their support means so much to me.

Also let’s talk about THAT cake. My Little Cake Tin made a cake inspired by watercolours and flowers and I think it’s the most beautiful cake I’ve ever seen. Tarunima made my wedding cake two years ago, and I’ve always wanted to work with her again because she is so incredibly talented, and such a lovely person. I didn’t really give her any direction on the cake, she just took inspiration from my book and far exceeded my wildest expectations. And of course it was absolutely delicious, like everything she makes.

We almost sold out of books on the night, but The Village Haberdashery have a few signed copies left in stock, which you can buy in store or through their website
