Wedding Table Flowers and Vintage Glassware,

We have been collecting pretty vintage glassware for a while now, absolutely love it.
Lovely florist Meagan from Made in Mumbles came and helped us with a really cute floral display for a recent wedding fayre. 

We probably have over 30 shapes of different glassware at the moment to hire out. We also have loads of glass water jugs too that can double up as flower vases. I think I may have a soft spot for glass as have loads of glass cake stands and candle sticks too.  More photographs to follow, I know you can't wait! hahaha, such excitement.
We are so looking forward to those summer weddings already.
The latest wedding enquiry is for the end of the summer 2014.
That seems so amazingly organised to me, like it though.
(I wonder who was silly enough to do a wedding in 6 weeks?) 

I do love the idea of lots of glass vases for a really long wedding table. Especially if they are all different shapes and sizes.

Vases and teapots.

Different vase shapes and sizes.
A range of flowers on display.

The strong smell of the pink hydrangeas bought loads of people over.

Glassware and tea cup candles.

Love this orange rose.

Meagan getting the flowers ready.

Hope you are all having a good weekend.
What with the rugby on today.
Won't say that I already know the score of England v Wales.
Someone will be very happy in the house this evening.
Take care for now.

Pretty Scrum Diddly Cakes.

I continue to be in awe of Michelle's beautiful wedding cupcakes from Scrum Diddly.
I absolutely love them. 
 It was great fun trying to match her pretty cupcakes with some delicate vintage china recently at a recent Wedding Fayre.
I love the intricate detail on the flowers.

Cupcakes on tall glass cake-stand.

My favourite, pink and green flowers on cupcake!

Hope you like the cakes as much as me.

If you like these, you should see some of Michelle's awesome wedding cakes.

Take care for now.
 I am so behind with so many blogs, 
I have started so many and I haven't finished them. 
We have been so busy, which is a good thing, a very good thing. So many emails and so many cake eating sessions going on!

 I am so excited about the rest of 2012.

 I was so going to start mountain biking again this year. 
Like when am I ever going to find time for that!

And I so need it with all the tea parties and cake eating.

Love Big Bertha, I mean Becca:-)

Vintage China and Cookies,

Cookies on Royal Albert vintage sandwich plate.
I came across this china the other day in my garage and couldn't believe that I had forgotten all about it.
There is always the thought that one should save such pretty vintage china for a special occasion, but I really feel that everyday is an occasion to be happy about.
So here it is.

Plus it's also good to try out the china before it gets hired out!

Love the Royal Albert gold detail and pattern.
 And pretty table runner.
  Perfect cup size for a coffee.

 China getting to know each other.
 5 large cookies.

Flower detail.
Love this one!
Cheeky hand

Have a great weekend.

St. David's Day Vintage Tea & Coffee Morning,

We are exciting once again to be helping with the St. David's Day vintage tea & coffee morning coming up.  We raised so much money last year for the local church family and youth work fund.  
People were very generous.

So this time we have tried to find most of our green and yellow china to go with the theme of St. David's day and all things Welsh!
 We should also put out some red china too (Welsh Dragons!)

Hopefully all the daffodils will be out!

Check out here for our last Macmillan's big coffee morning photographs.

and here for last years's Valentine Vintage tea party.

Have a good day and if you are in the area, 
please do drop by and say hello.


(Do you think I should dress up in Welsh Costume?)
