Printable Bunting

September 5, 2010

Bunting is everywhere and in my book most things can be dolled up with a bit of ribbon and trimming. More on making bunting for school later but in the meantime have a look at this brilliant printable bunting, perfect for sweet messages and birthday parties…


Golden Wedding

August 20, 2010

Special celebrations in our family this year include 50 years of marriage for my parents…wow that is a commendable achievement!  Family and friends gathered to share a happy day of memories, photo albums, familiar faces, fancy cakes, great-grandmothers legendary fruit cake laced with brandy (featured below), bubbly, and more bubbly, tasty nibbles, aunties laughing, uncles chuckling, smiles, toasts and tears, and lots and lots of love!

Congratulations, you are an example to us all!

Summer Wedding

August 14, 2010

The first official wedding at school was made eventful by the torrential downpour…most of August’s rain in half an hour, but nothing would dampen the spirits of the adorable couple…the bride was overheard saying ‘this has been the best day of my life’ and may they have many more happy days of marriage ahead!

Note:  I made the sign from a perfectly sized piece of wood (found object in the shed!) and used easy spray-on gloss paint (leftover from the linen basket I dolled up…more about that later).  Then I printed ‘wedding’ in a curly font, traced it and used acrylic paint to fill in…darling HM drilled the holes for the lovely ribbon I had in my over flowing ribbon drawer.  Et voila, it does the job brilliantly (if i may say so myself!) and all the guests knew where to find the very pretty wedding party…see below.

The natural light in the marquee casts a special colour to all the trimmings and decor for this wedding party.  Their theme colours were navy blue and pink and butterflies were abundant.  The bride made the gorgeous butterfly seating plan, isn’t it sweet?

Prettiest Wedding

July 19, 2010

The school grounds lend themselves perfectly for many an occasion and this year I am delighted we were the chosen venue for the prettiest wedding party.  There will be more photos to come, but have a look at these gorgeous flowers and simple table decorations…perfect summer wedding!
