Welcome to First Impressions! Styling, showcasing, displays and centrepieces created for any occasion, especially weddings
Hello, I’m Sue Lockwood. When I launched my small business in 2012, my aim was simply to provide original window displays for shops and businesses within the Dunblane area. However, things have grown since then! My window display service has proved so successful that some of my prize-winning window displays * have been in locations right across Central Scotland. Following requests, I now create and provide a wide variety of other display options. I am responding to requests large and small and extending styling and display options all the time. Thanks to the support of my amazing family, what began as a hobby is now a full-time job and I just love it!
Attention to detail is vitally important to every aspect of my work. Whether I’m creating a one-off, hand-tied bridal bouquet to keep or planning a regular change of window display, I am absolutely passionate about the work I do. Things have to pass a taste test! Would I like to carry it, wear it, use it, live with it? If not, out it goes and I start all over again!
By the way, if you can’t see the display option you have it mind here on my website, it doesn’t mean I don’t do it, it might just mean I haven’t been asked yet!
(PS – Testimonials can be seen by scrolling down to the end of the relevant page – eg Wedding & Events Decoration!)
Wedding & Events Decoration - Individually designed and created table centrepieces for hire and also for sale are a major part of the service I offer and I am thrilled to also have been asked to create bridal bouquets which brides can keep. You’ll see me showcasing my work at local Wedding Fayres and prospective brides and their families are welcome to come to our home to discuss their ideas and have centrepieces designed with no obligation whatsoever.
Vintage is still very popular at the moment. If you love the idea of using Vintage cups, saucers and plates for your event – whether the gathering is intimate, for two people, or corporate, for two hundred, my Vintage Crockery hire service can help you. A display using props from yesteryear is another string to my bow.
House Staging is a satisfying service that I offer. Currently in our 13th house, we have masses of experience of buying, selling and relocating. I am very experienced in creating instant atmosphere. First Impressions can help you stage your home so that it appeals to the widest audience of prospective buyers. Or, if you just want a change of scene, I can style your room for you and help you by adjusting your possessions to make the most of where you live.
So, whatever the display or budget, contact me now … because you only have one chance to create a First Impression!
