The Corinthian Club

Just had to share about a dinner I organised for work and in particular about the amazing venue. I wanted to move away from the standard hotel room that had been used before. They sometimes feel like your event is just 3 of 50 similiar events taking place that week/month/year, an event done to a formula. That's not to say some hotels can't be great for events, I just find the chain hotels make you feel like a number.

Anyway I wanted to veer away from that and sourced The Corinthian Club in Glasgow. It used to be a private members club and they've totally refurbished it and what a result! As you can see from the pictures there's a casino, various bars, karaoke rooms, a club, private dining rooms etc. It really has personality and each space can cater for individual tastes.

We will definately be using them again, for now I'm looking forward to visiting for sunday brunch sitting it one of the 'faberge egg' chairs, and staring up at the beautiful ceiling.

fabric invitations

How lovely are these wedding invitations from Merriment Design. I think the black, yellow and white are really fresh and the fabric being sewn on gives it a slight 3d effect. You can read the tutorial here and even download the templates to have a go yourself! This is definately something I'm going to be trying.
