A Hoot of a Baby Shower

A very special mummy to be, Yvonne, was treated to a sweet little baby shower today.  My sister and I designed everything from the invitations through to the take home gift and were inspired by Yvonne's love of Owls.  It was a gorgeous afternoon and even a thunderstorm hitting didn't spoil the fun and relaxing time that was had by 35 lovely ladies.  Now for the fun to begin and the countdown to little Baby H! xx

I headed out for some retail therapy tonight after looking after my sick little boy for a week and ended up as usual, browsing through the bookshop.  Tonight however I was soooooo excited (cue understatement) when I spied the newest arrival to the shop sitting on the counter still wrapped in plastic.  I didn't have to persuade the shop assistant at all to unwrap it immediately and hand it over.  This stunning book by Preston Bailey (a long time idol of mine) is absolutely gorgeous and I can't wait to order mine for Christmas!  The colours and details in this book are amazing, such inspiration.

If you have a love of events, weddings, flowers or just the finer details, you must must must purchase this book.  I'm off to order mine now!

Beach Chic

This wedding styled by Bellafare (my new icons!) is the most beautiful wedding i've seen.  It is styled perfectly without looking OTT and the relaxed beach setting has achieved a timeless and elegant wedding.  I adore the colours of seafoam and whites chosen and am amazed they found a stunning door to compliment their reception colour palette!  I will defintely be adding Florida on my 'destination America' travel list and can't wait to sip a cocktail at the Windsor in Vero Beach.

Come fly with me...............

So I've had a thing for sky lanterns ever since watching (wait for it....) Tangled with my boys!  Then I saw a documentary (actually it was the Bachelorette) on the sky lanterns in Taiwan and I'm hooked.  I've now put this on my bucket list and must get to the Lantern Festival in Taiwan or in Thailand one of these years.  Aren't they stunning!
