99 anyone?

A lovely little alternative to the standard dessert. Grab your guests attention with the familiar sound of an ice cream van approaching your reception. With heaps of delish flavours and extras, Vintage Scoops won't fail to impress.

DIY Wedding Breakfast

These gorgeous little birthday boxes have recently inspired a wedding I'm working on later this year. With a tight budget I have been thinking up ways of cutting costs without sacrificing any enjoyment. So, we've come up with the DIY Wedding Breakfast. On each table, guests will have a vintage suitcase packed with lots of nibbles and picnic goodies. I love the interactive element, it will certainly get the guests chatting and mixing. I will post photos once the wedding arrives!

Sweet Hair

Lovely little up-do's to inspire.

Some pretties

Just a small selection of pretty bits that have made me smile today....

How sweet is the mint coloured tuk tuk. You may not be able to actually see out of the window to drive... but hey, it looks cute!
I love a banner and particularly like it when they are used to announce certain parts of the wedding day. 'Here comes the Bride' (as above), 'First Dance'... 'Cut the cake' etc etc

Gorgeous little bouquet which would make the perfect accessory for lovely bridesmaids. Cheap and super cheerful.

I adore fabric wrapping and the above shows just how effective you can make a simple gift with some pretty material. Enclosed is just a simple bar of Galaxy... these could made scrumptious favours...

I know I'm a bit crazy for cake toppers.... but couldn't resist... so sweet xx

Carnival Theme

You know how I love a colourful wedding.... well I thought I'd pull together a few inspirational images for a carnival themed celebration. A few of my clients have gone down this route over the past few months and I've loved working on them. The opportunities are endless and the weddings always seem to generate a really relaxed, fun atmosphere. They are also a great way to keep costs down since the laid back look of the day welcomes a BYO policy and long trestle tables loaded with delicious bowl foods. Most of the items below can be found on my beloved Shout if you'd like further info.

Guestbook Genius

Some lovely, creative ideas for your guestbook....

These cute correspondence cards can fit neatly into a sweet keepsake box like this. Alternatively your favourite messages could be framed.

A fun idea to keep your guests entertained and provide lots of post wedding enjoyment for your and your hubs...

A sweet way to stay in touch with your closest friends and family. You could even make a bespoke calender with lots of pics of you and your partner, best mates, weddings etc....

What's not to love about this. Totally wonderful.

More thumb stamping fun.... this time, a keepsake for you to show off at home....

A lovely way of displaying hand written postcards from your guests. Make into a book, or mount in a giant Ikea frame. Display in the downstairs loo!

A nice way to combine escort cards and the guestbook. Allocate each guest a pen with their name table number labelled on it. They can then return to write you a little message later on and post in a vintage postbox. eBay have lots of these.

A simple wooden jigsaw puzzle for guests to leave messages on. A gorgeous keepsake.
