WF Christmas getaway

As the end of the year approaches, our tiny team were treated to 2 nights away at a beautiful location, full of Christmas surprises..... We started our Christmas celebrations at Mud, Bryon Bay where they greeted us with an epic grazing platter and a bottle of our favourite rosé (they know us too well).   We spent the next 3 hours sculpting our own clay shapes, chatting and sipping on wine.   After we finished our amazing clay session, we all headed to our surprise location - Blue Green Sanctuary in Newrybar where we spent the next couple of hours relaxing by the pool and admiring this gorgeous property.   We enjoyed a delicious sensory experience meal by Gaia Cuisine...

Grandé Fleur Launch Picnic

Friends gathered in the afternoon amongst the blooms at Poppy and Fern Flower farm.     We sipped wine, frolicked through the flowers and collected our own arrangements along the way.       As the sun set and the golden light began to glisten over the mountains we made our way into the orchards where we joined an enchanting Grandé Fleur picnic.        We snacked on a delectable picnic spread, listened to live music and told each other stories (mainly about the food).     To finish off a beautiful evening we cut into the most exquisite hand made cake and left us all feeling full - not just from cake but from a wonderful evening celebrating...

Meet Sharnee... WF Founder

For many years Sharnee was running her business solo, packing orders in her bedroom, replying to customer emails and working her usual busy freelance life on the side. Now, in 2020 she has 3 employees, a beautiful showroom...
