Now in its sixth year, the Blairgowrie Bookmark Festival has firmly established itself as being one of the best literary festivals in the UK Calendar.
Christine Findlay (Honorary President) says that the ethos of the festival is "to foster and encourage a love of literature in all its forms by sharing our passion for reading and writing in a friendly, inclusive environment."
This ethos has resulted in an inspiring festival with is loved by many who are attracted to Blairgowrie from all across the country,
Our team at Something Special Flowers are proud to have been asked by the Bookmark committee, to style the venue for the past few years and we are delighted at the authors responses to the ambiance of the venue.
Here's some of the comments regarding the festival:
"Superb venue, so professionally organised. Great P.A system. Good colour coordination and flowers. Strong coffee. You will get the idea that I am feeling positive about this. Edinburgh Book Festival has a rival!"

“I didn‘t wait to be invited back, I invited myself, in fact that‘s why I wrote another book”
BOOKMARK is better than most because it is superbly well organised, you look after me so well and because you, as a community, are so interested in books. I feel you actually want to hear what I have to say It‘s a marvellous event. I will be back again if I can think of another book to write."
