All pom poms were hand made by Katy and her mum.

This cannot be beaten, right?
The recipe kinda follows Delia's Chocolate Sponge but with added extras including cherries, biscuit and marshmallows.
Decorate with sticks, fabric and bunting.
It's the small things that makes us smile.
An adorable way to capture all your wedding memories.
The below was made from a lot of lovely hens who each gave a sentimental piece of fabric to the chief bridesmaid. Scraps included old school uniform, sports kit, wedding bunting, dress fabrics along with colourful napkins that they thought she would love.
Anyone wanting to create something similar should collect all the pieces and take to a local seamstress. It's actually a really cost effective way of creating a super memorable gift.
This lovely little picture inspired an idea for an original table plan.
Grab yourself a stack of basic clipboards from the likes of WH Smiths and decorate with pretty decorative paper, or even free wallpaper samples.
Start by making a template, trace the shape of the board onto a piece of thick card. Then brush some glue onto the clipboard making sure you have an even layer. Finish by affixing the paper and smoothing out any air bubbles.
Write guest names on pretty paper or fabric and clip to the board.
How fabulous are these!?
Created by Australian stationary shop, Upon a Fold, we think these ice cream note cards are a strike of genius.
Crafty brides can get creative using the same concept to make invites for a lovely summer wedding. Ice cream sticks can be bought super cheap in Paperchase or Hobbycraft.

How exciting, this week my bestie got engaged to her lovely boy, Dan.
She is a sunshine girl so they are hoping to tie the knot next summer with a pretty pastel theme.
I'm beside myself with happiness, it's going to be a wonderful day.
