Vintage weddings 2018 are full of colour

This year we have a lovely lot of weddings with beautiful vintage themes, colourful boho with a clash of bright colours in china and flowers.

Zinging yellows with cheery sunflowers and colourful hoops and ribbons. 

Flowery centrepieces with vintage green bottles

2018 weddings are full of  bright colours and we love it.

Photo Shoot at Cavokay

A visit to an amazing venue in Somerset www.oldmilkingparlour.co.uk
became a mini photo shoot.  We have now been asked to do a full venue shoot, an exciting project we are really looking forward to and can't wait to share with you.

Baby Shower

Baby showers.. what a great party, lots of pink and yellow china chosen by Mum. Lots of pink bubbly for the guests and tea in the most gorgeous cup for mum-to-be..


Christmassy China and Cake

Our lovely friend Sadie at www.cakesbysadiesmith.co.uk held a Christmas cooking demonstration event, her gorgeous cakes on some of our christmassy gold and white china.  Beginning to feel a lot like Christmas and making me hungry, those chocolate brownies look amazing.
Pop over to her blog for recipes and baking chat.

Secret Garden Wedding

During the summer we were lucky to be involved in the most beautiful Secret Garden Wedding with a vintage theme at the amazing Larmer Tree.

We supplied pink, yellow and peach china with vintage glass bowls for strawberries, champagne saucers and
china cups for decoration.

Autumn Wedding Fairs

Summer is sadly nearly over, September round the corner and the Autumn Wedding Fairs are about to begin. We are now getting creative and designing a new display, another cup of tea first and perhaps another biscuit, someone has been at the biscuit jar, so a digestive it will have to be.
 Here is a section of one of our previous displays -The Tipping Teapot.
