After years of writing about my own little vintage caravan, today I’m sharing a new-found friend with you: Daisy the caravan. She lives in Ellesmere Port and is packed full of vintage charm so I couldn’t resist borrowing some photos from her website in order to share this retro home-on-wheels with you today.Daisy is a beautiful pre-loved vintage caravan which has been lovingly restored to its former glory by her owner Sian. Weeks of hard work went into fixing up this retro beauty as Sian installed fresh new upholstery and soft furnishings, completely made over the vintage décor and cleaned Daisy from top to bottom.
Owning Daisy has completely taken over Sian’s life, as she spends hours searching out the cutest vintage accessories to add to the caravan’s collection of pretty china, cake stands, glassware and retro fittings. But all this hard work isn’t just for herself – Sian kindly shares her beautiful home-from-home with brides, party guests and vintage enthusiasts around the country by hiring out Daisy for special occasions.Since offering Daisy for hire Sian has realised just how many occasions would suit her vintage caravan as enquiries came flooding in for sweet 16 birthday parties, christening celebrations, anniversaries, summer barbeques, launch events and even photo shoots. With a selection of vintage entertainment accompanying the caravan, such as traditional wooden croquet and a retro Bush radio providing the music, it is easy to see why this caravan has been so popular as a venue for a summer party.
Of course, Daisy really comes into her own at weddings and this is what Sian is most excited about. Brides can hire the caravan for a vintage hen party and book it for the wedding itself; as a ‘bridal suite’ to get ready in, as a backdrop for photos and as a venue for a drinks reception. I can just imagine how pretty the photos would be and I wish Daisy had been available when I got married all those years ago!Determined to make every event as special as possible, Sian also offers catering packages to enjoy as part of your vintage caravan party such as an afternoon tea (with fresh finger sandwiches, tempting cakes, delicious pastries and bucket-loads of tea!), carnival delights (including popcorn maker, hotdog warmer, candyfloss machine and lashings of Pimms!) or even a champagne breakfast – perfect for brides and bridesmaids getting ready in Daisy.
I’m sure you will agree with me that Daisy is one of the cutest vintage caravans ever, and I’d love to own her myself! From the floral interior to the distressed vintage chairs, Sian has created the perfect bygone hideaway and I’d love to spend a day there, sipping tea and listing to the wireless!
Thanks to Sian, YOU can enjoy Daisy for yourself, as she is offering a prize worth up to £275 including the Silver Hire package, along with catering for 10 guests in the party theme of your choice. Do you have a wedding coming up soon? A christening, hen party, baby shower, birthday or prom? Then this prize would be perfect for you!
But even if you don’t have a special occasion, why not just use the prize to celebrate summer? Have a garden party with all your favourite friends or book Daisy as an anniversary treat for your loved one.
