Coming full circle...

In the past few years, Mariah & Sham has been busy with one event update after another.
Hence, if you've only started following us, 
you'd probably think of us as wedding stylists and organisers

Truth be told, even till now, we cant define the single nature of our biz.
We've dabbled in everything from cakes to favours, gifts, stationeries, floral works, homewares, interior design, events, weddings and even customised artwork.

We were officially established in 2007, 
at a time when scrapbooking supplies or online shops were almost non-existent in Singapore, 
and we had to innovate, create and handmake all our boxes, tags, labels and accessories for our dessert isles, hantarans, gifts, stationeries, hampers and floral works.
It was the time when even the making of a cupcake was challenging, because there were no Wilton-like supplies or factory made cutters, accessories or moulds at our disposal.

By the time supplies became more available everywhere, 
and many businesses were sprouting and taking advantage of the trend and the market demand,
we were no longer just dabbling in cakes, favours, customised hantarans and the likes.
 We had already gotten ourselves immersed in home styling, soft furnishings, 
furniture designs, homewares and even landscaping.
 Our earlier followers would have seen us evolve at least that much.

 So years ago, when we were first persuaded (or perhaps coerced) into an event styling project, 
we committed to it, thinking that it would allow us to assimilate our passion 
for designing with that of crafting, building, styling and innovating. 
 True enough, it did.
In one single project, we would get enough opportunities to put on many different hats.
 We would bake and create the wedding cake, experiment with various floral styles, create new structures for the venue, design tablescapes, sew linens and soft finishes, produce customised stationeries, and conjure up many different event styles.

That experience taught us much. 
And maybe that's why we're coming full circle now.
We're striving to get back in touch with all the things we've loved doing, 
and not just do weddings.

And timely enough, just as we're getting our bearings back,
we received a surprise friendly email from an esteemed UK based home furnishing company, 

We're honoured to know that they found our blog 
"really interesting, with great and lovely content".
We're also equally excited to know that they've released new sofa collections. 
You may visit their site to create your own completely 
bespoke sofa in a range of over 60 different fabrics and styles. 
Likewise, if you'd love to have us style your space
with their furnitures and furnishings, just drop us an email.
  We hold them in high esteem for their meticulous attention to quality and details.

So now, while we'll still style bespoke and premium events,
our Home & Living arm will be revived.
But first up will be our pop-up garage sale.
God knows we've been putting it on the back burner!
Since we (really really) need to make room for more props,
we've decided to do it really really soon.
We're now firming up on the date and location.
It will be either 2 weeks before or 2 weeks after our october Burkill Hall event. 
Be sure to look out for our announcement.

Meanwhile, have a fabulous and meaningful week ahead, everyone! :)
