After a busy Christmas period, it is time for Sweet Fern to close the shop and replenish for the year to come. The online store (launched this year) will still be open 24/7. It is time to reflect on the wonderful year which has been!
Perfume Masterclasses are one of our favourite events at Sweet Fern. Not only do we love hosting them, the sharing of knowledge and information is so exciting for us. 2016 has been filled with masterclasses of all different themes. The most sensually invigorating experience has been a chocolate themed masterclass combining fragrance notes and custom made chocolate to accentuate taste. Other themes include Spring racing, romance and Mother's Day. Stay tuned this year for our themed events during 2017 - our upcoming dates are here.
Sweet Fern have attended various events throughout the year. Hello Lovely Wedding Fair was a delight and it was nice to meet beautiful brides and vendors. Sweet Fern demonstrated bridal fragrances and offered VIP guests a mini masterclass. Participation in Melbourne Spring Fashion Week was also a fantastic experience for Sweet Fern; such talented designers. It was also a pleasure to attend Top Birds exclusive luncheon and meet wonderful like minded women.
Sweet Fern welcomed Aesop skin care experts to host the Sensory Skin Care Workshop, a hands-on skin care blending class. Trained Aesop consultants demonstrated various blends and benefits of Aesop products offering advice for tailored regimes and product formulation. What an enlightening experience.
One of the most exciting parts of 2016 was the creation and launch of Sweet Fern Botanics. Unique blends of soap, tea, a facial steam and diffuser have been formed and locally made. The range continues to expand, stay tuned for more in 2017.
How could we forget attending the Commerce Ballarat Business Excellence Awards and the honour of winning the Retail Business category Sponsored by Stockland Wendouree Ballarat, launching our Bridal Showers and training with fragrance guru Michael Edwards.
Thank you to every customer who has supported Sweet Fern, you have made this possible for us. We look forward to all the amazing things that 2017 and beyond will bring. Happy New Year!
