We had purrrrred getting our claws did in our pop up nail bar by the perfect CRITTER CLAWS, creating custom gifts with LOVE MY PRINTS, admiring the artwork from LAUREN NICHOLSON ILLUSTRATION, falling in love with the wildest bunches of posies and floral displays by FOXGLOVE BOTANICALS, the most magical mushrooms by LOW GLO LUMINAIRES, gorgeous handmade notebooks from THE RED FOREST, sophisticated design and illustration by BERNAVUE, exquisite terrariums from BONNIE and tying the knott with FORGET ME KNOTT.
