THEME: °Let's Celebrate!

All types will be accepted


Accessories for Weddings, Communions and general celebrations ( parties, other celebrations )


A very special day all over Spain is when little girls receive their first holy communion. They dress up in pretty white dresses, don white gloves, wear very special hair-bands with flowers in their hair and carry pretty handkerchiefs. These are all accessories that can be embellished or made entirely with lace.


Another very special day is when bigger girls get married. The same holds true as before, but in this case we are talking about bridal laces, lace gloves for brides, handkerchief, garter, nightgown, pretty underclothes or other creative accessories. Letís not forget about the other half of the marriage, men.  A marrying kind of guy needs a lace tie, a special handkerchief for his jacket pocket, and a pretty cushion to present that very special ring on that very special day.


Besides these ideas we are sure you can think of others, for example, jewellery and handbags.


 We are anxious to see your ideas
