Forest Gump said that his momma always said, "Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get." How true that is with neighbours when you live in a City as we both have for many years.
Having never really known any of our neighbours whilst living in London, all that changed in 2011. Little did either of us know that a friendship would develop, pretty much instantly over many many things including a mutual love of all things beautifully designed and crafted.
Fast forward 4 years, both holding down demanding full time jobs, juggling family life, childcare challenges and working through the night to create bespoke invitations and handcrafted decorations, Dilly + Diti was born.
We are having so much fun arranging, designing and styling parties for all types of celebrations. What makes it even better, is so far, every single party has been a personal recommendation. We've experienced so many firsts this year. The world of social media, networking events (which have proved to be so valuable), attending trade fairs, mastering the art of chalkboard paint and a personal favourite, visiting vintage markets all in the name of Dilly + Diti and we are loving every single minute!
The next is the launch of our website. Thanks to the talented Will Hamlyn from zincc.com it's looking (even if we say so ourselves!) pretty amazing.
Thank you to everyone who has supported us so far, it really means so much and to say we're a little excited about what the future holds is a huge understatement!
