A Soulful Gathering: simple ideas to host 2 or 200.
A Soulful Gathering: simple ideas to host 2 or 200 is an e book written by me, stylist and blogger Hannah Bullivant. It’s 130 beautiful pages of inspiration and guidance to help you to host your own gatherings with soul. It contains all of the styling and hosting tips i’ve built up over the last 5 years (well, far longer than that actually!) and lots of the things I wish i’d be told years ago!
This guide is less about meeting social conventions, creating perfectly styled dinner parties, the correct placement of cutlery, and a lot more focussed on the joys of bringing the people you love together; whether thats 2 or 200, whether you’re introverted or the biggest extrovert around, whether you live in a tiny flat or a huge home. Whether you have no budget or unlimited. Whilst the focus of the guide is the people and community, I also include tons of actionable and practical tips for styling and hosting.
