Party like Royalty
The Purple Palace tent was described by Fern Cotton as her 'Bedouin Boudoir' when used as the VIP tent and interview area at The Isle of White festival.
We think this is one of the most decadent, bombastic and unusual interiors in the collection and the purple velvet seems to wrap itself around you, and the quirky regency inspired gold crowns make every guest feel like royalty.
It is one of the most photogenic interiors as the colour-scheme and sumptuous reflective quality is complimentary to all complexions, and is perfect for 70th birthday parties....as Jenny Joseph tells us - When I am old I shall wear Purple.
We couldn't resist sharing the poem with you here;
"When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
With a red hat which doesn’t go, and doesn’t suit me.
And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves
And satin sandals, and say we’ve no money for butter.
I shall sit down on the pavement when I’m tired
And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells
And run my stick along the public railings
And make up for the sobriety of my youth.
I shall go out in my slippers in the rain
And pick flowers in other people’s gardens
And learn to spit.
You can wear terrible shirts and grow more fat
And eat three pounds of sausages at a go
Or only bread and pickle for a week
And hoard pens and pencils and beermats and things in boxes.
But now we must have clothes that keep us dry
And pay our rent and not swear in the street
And set a good example for the children.
We must have friends to dinner and read the papers.
But maybe I ought to practise a little now?
So people who know me are not too shocked and surprised
When suddenly I am old, and start to wear purple."
