Halloween Party Ideas

Halloween Party Ideas

Last year I threw my first proper Halloween party (as I surprise for my husband, whose birthday is a couple of days before) and it was a blast! I got tons of ideas for cheap home-made decorations and spooky party food from Pinterest. Sorry in advance about the quality of the photos in this post; my phone does not do well in semi-darkness! The Decor The decorations were really fun and easy to do. I bought some cheap ones from the local pound shop, including themed tablecloths, plastic skeletons, ghost balloons, black and orange banners, a colour changing pumpkin and […]

My Wedding (Part 4) Decorations

My Wedding (Part 4) Decorations

Welcome to the fourth part of a series of posts all about my wedding, with ideas, tips, inspiration and downloadable resources. Today I’d like to show you some of my decorations. As we both love the colour blue, we decided to go for what I call peacock colours-teal, purple and gold. We also had a lot of ivory in the scheme to keep things fresh and to match my dress. I included peacock feathers wherever I could to match the theme, which made it quite unique. Venue Flowers For our venue flowers we went to The Flower Shop in Kirton. Kerry […]


My Wedding (Part 3) DIY Seating Plan (with free template!)

My Wedding (Part 3) DIY Seating Plan (with free template!)

Welcome to the third part of a series of posts focusing on my wedding, with ideas, tips, inspiration and downloadable resources. Today I’ll talk through my seating plan. The seating plan was quite tricky to get right, because when three different families come together it’s hard to make sure everyone is seated next to people they will get on with and talk to. At the end of the day, you have to remember this is your special day and you can’t please everyone. Close family and friends can put aside any differences just for the day. We actually found there was […]

My Wedding (Part 2) DIY Pocketfold Invites-with free templates!

Welcome to the second part of a series of posts focusing on my wedding, with ideas, tips, inspiration and downloadable resources. Today is all about invitations. After looking around for wedding invites online, I found some lovely looking designs. I got lots of inspiration from Pinterest and Etsy. Pure Invitation is one of the sites I looked at as it lets you design your own invites exactly how you want them and then they make them up and ship them out to you, so it’s a great option if you’re pushed for time but still want a unique design. In […]


Christmas Decor 2012

Christmas Decor 2012

I thought I’d share with you out household decorations for this Christmas. I like quite traditional decorations so we usually go for a green tree with red and gold decorations and white lights. I also like plenty of berries, foliage, pine cones and gold glitter, as well as a few silly cartoonish things thrown in. We also go for an artificial tree as although look less lovely they are cheaper, easier to put up, reusable and less messy. Yes, I know, we’re lazy, tacky cheapskates. But it is Christmas. What do you think? This wreath was £3.00 in the sale […]
