We speak with Miss Etiquette herself, Kate (formerly from Keep Me Cute), a little about her cupcake decorating stall at this months Bend and Snap Market, her inspirations and dreams as well as the upcoming launch of her new business specialising in little ladies tea parties.
1. Tell us a little about yourself using a Haiku (short poem with three lines comprising 5 syllables, 7 syllables, then 5 syllables).
I dream of flying,
But like a bird without wings,
I must learn to walk.
2. Tell us a little about the origins of Miss Etiquette.
There’s something so precious about taking time to do life elegantly. I’ve always enjoyed tea with my mother, poured from an intricately floral teapot into our china cups, She taught me to relax and enjoy these treasured moments. This is where my little ladies tea parties grew from, I wish to instill a love for elegance among young girls, and encourage their desire to be a lady.
3. Describe your creative process.
I don’t so much have a creative process I guess, but rather give thought to what excites young children and how they would like their parties to be. I so cherished my birthday parties as a child and I want to help in creating these fond memories for others.
4. What inspires you the most?
My goals are what keeps me going, and my abundant love for children.
5. Name some of your most favourite local artists and designers.
