Summer of love – part 2


Glorious globes, and simple elegance.  Trials and tribulations – when cut they make the water turn orange, like they’re partial to a glass of iron bru.  The white ones are worse, smells like you’re in an onion factory….if such a thing exists which I doubt it does.

Top table – wonder what was on the menu?


All white.  Gorgeous scent too.  Freesia is a marvel for that.

Jam jars, useful for so many things – love to keep bouquets in them with a bit of wet tissue.  Keeps them super fresh and happy.

Pippa Middleton inspired hairslide

Very pretty, not an ounce of twee.  And took forever to make – but worth the effort.  Nat has very dark glossy hair, just perfect for this.


Cake topper

Hint of herbage – for the groom.  Rosemary, sage and freesia – scentastic.

OK you know I have to have the van in all wedding blogs – it’s the law – honest.  Do you like the little lanterns dangling from the marquee?  They had them all across the ceiling inside too and few chandeliers – fancy huh.  And a basket of flip flops for those with sore feet after all that dancing – men really shouldn’t wear such ridiculous footwear – but you can’t preach.

Gooseberries and plums

And here’s your Sunday treat – a gooseberry and plum crumble in the making.  Crumble with nuts – again the law, and with custard – can be tinned, doesn’t have to be super fancy stuff with vanilla bits.  Sadly I was last minute and ended up with low fat – suppose if I add enough butter, nuts and sugar I can handle the filthy skinny version.  Enjoy the rest of the weekend, I’m off to watch Juno….again.  Thanks TV schedulers.
