Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Flutterbow Events, a brand-new wedding décor business that takes inspiration from different eras and styles such as vintage, retro, rustic and classic. The business involves styling venues for weddings, parties, corporate functions and special events.
The business involves supplying and setting up decorations at venues using decorative products and linens.
Flutterbow Events would be an ideal business for someone who enjoys working with fabrics, props and flowers, for example, using mismatched china for floral centerpieces, tying bows in preparation for a wedding or hanging swags of bunting around a party room.
This business has been set up using a proven business model, tried and tested by our client who has run their own, very successful wedding & event business for over 14 years.
Everything is in place for the new owner to begin trading as a stylist including an array of props, chair covers and beautiful sashes made from lace, satin and organza.
This business also comes with a unique trading name, a web-site, liability insurance and full training.
The new owner can build the business around a schedule that suits them.
This type of business would suit an owner who has an interest in creative trends, such as shabby chic decor, nostalgic props, vintage fabrics, retro signs and rustic accessories etc. There is an active network promoting this scene on social media, so a keen awareness of sites such as Instagram and Pinterest would be useful. This is also an ideal market place to promote the business and seek additional props for the business as it progresses.
Full training will take place during the initial handover period and will be tailored to the individual needs and interests of the buyer. Therefore, this business would suit someone who wants to expand an existing craft based wedding business to include venue décor, or someone who wants to utilise their creative abilities by owning, and building up, their own event styling business.
All training will be provided by the seller and a team of industry experts, all of whom have had successful careers working in the wedding and events industry.
The hand over period will also include practical assistance and guidance in setting up, or preparing for, promotional events such as wedding fayres and exhibitions if required.
The venue styling market offers an amazing opportunity within a constantly growing marketplace.
People are increasingly looking for inspiration for their special event, whether it’s a wedding, birthday party, Christening, Bar Mitzvah, engagement, anniversary or a seasonal occasion such as Christmas or New Year, so this is a very busy industry to be involved in.Location
This business can be run from home using a spare room or garage for storage. An estate car or people carrier is adequate to begin with for transporting props and products.
There are no restrictions regarding territory with this business; so, work can be sourced locally or as far afield as the new owner is willing to travel.
Celebrating a wedding or special event is a joyful occasion so clients are at their happiest which creates a very enjoyable and relaxed working environment!Premises
