Fern & Maple

Fern & Maple Fern & Maple is an event styling, planning and party supplies company. We also offer unique prop and party rentals. My name is Natalie Mayhew and I am the creative director & founder of Fern & Maple.

I love to craft, to DIY and to create parties for both adults and children – or as I like to put it, “for bigs and littles alike.”

I was born in Wellington, New Zealand, and although I have ventured far from my Kiwi roots, I remain inspired by childhood memories of "acting" as an event stylist for my mom’s get-togethers and hours spent rummaging through antique sales and up-cycling found objects

Don’t forget the teapot! This tree fairy party is #liveontheblog
🧚🏻‍♀️🫖🧚🏻
I bought this beauty off another stylist when she when she was clearing out party props. I’m thinking of creating an Etsy store for the props I’ve used in shoots. I have soooo many (one might say I hoard 😬😂) even tableware that is only used for a photo…What do you think?! Crowdsourcing the idea!

Every fairy party 🧚🏻‍♀️ needs to serve 🫖 magical tea! (Fill with hot chocolate, milk or juice for kids!)
Party Tip: Hit up your local thrift store for affordable teacups & saucers, they don’t need to match. Swipe to see the pretty combos I found! Party Tip: @traderjoes has the sweetest heart macaroons year round! Add a sprig of lavender & serve up some love!
Party Tip: Wood slices make the perfect placemats, surround with blooms for tree fairies 🧚🏻‍♀️ to perch upon!
