Origami (st)

Instead of table hopping magic have table hopping Origami instead. A mixture of demonstration to 'have a go' and a 'favour' for guests to take home (such as Panda shown here).

Presented by the Uk's master origamist with style and flair



The beauty and simplicity of Japanese calligraphy is a true eye-catcher. Megumi is able to translate a name and using a black brush-tip pen, write it onto a white/gold speckled card bookmarker (usual personalised gift) which is adorned with a short length of golden ribbon (the colour gold representing royalty, strength and wealth) and a red kanji stamp of her name (which means blessing). The meaning of the guests name is written onto the back of the bookmarker. For example, the name James means, nurturing a dream of prosperity.

Calligraphy is an extremely clean and self-contained presentation, therefore making it ideal for any sort of occasion Guests will marvel at the skills shown

Place markers need not be the same tired old white card. Why not make something truly unique that will be a lasting souvenir for the family or guests. Or commemorate an anniversary, birthday or wedding with a sentiment that you invent and Megumi will deliver a unique gift from Japan
