Brunch with Kirstie

Last week we had the pleasure of joining Kirstie Allsopp for a media brunch at her beautiful and eclectic home in Notting Hill, to launch the Handmade Fair’s second show to press. The brunch, which was super healthy and seriously tasty, hosted by Kirstie and her team, aimed to give a sneak peak into what this year’s second Handmade Fair will look like in September.

The brunch was filled with questions about the craft fair, which highlighted that the event brings together Britain’s best producers of crafting supplies, handmade items and artisan foods, and invites craft enthusiasts and lovers of all things homemade to come and join in the action.

Throughout the event different craft exhibitors, Kirstie and other household names such as Annie Sloan, Jane Means, Poppy Chancellor, and Fiona Cairns, will host craft workshops that last between 30 minutes and one hour, including jewellery and accessory making, paper crafting, sewing, knitting, upcycling and even how to craft the perfect handmade wedding. Further names will be announced over the coming weeks – with some very special guests in the pipeline and tickets going on sale in April, so watch this space-

What better way to start the day than with a glass of fizz, poached eggs, avocado, vegetarian frittata’s and kedgeree, finished off with polenta cake and wheat free brownies.

The beautiful bouquets in vintage vases used to dress the table.

Press even left with a beautiful Bonbon Balloon to brighten up their afternoon.
