Bespoke Wedding Invitation Design - "LOVE"

This design was created for a bride recently, and was developed from "LOVE", one of our existing designs - she went for a different design in the end but i wanted to share this with you so that you can see how our designs can be tailored to suit your needs!

Five Senses...

My five senses this week...

Delicious Teapigs Darjeeling Earl Grey tea - i love the silky "Tea Temples" filled with lovely whole leaf tea, and vibrant blue cornflower petals.

Letters to Juliet. I watched this film earlier in the week and loved it - i am now desperate to go to Verona myself and travel around the gorgeous Italian countryside just like the characters in the film!

The Smiths. I love the Smiths and as i haven't listened to them for a while i spent a few hours listening through my favourite albums and singing along whilst i worked!

Lovely and cosy! I've recently bought myself a big cosy oversized mans cardigan for cuddling up in around the house - this one from Topman is similar, and is perfect for wrapping up in on the sofa!

Lovely, by Sarah Jessica Parker. It's one of my favourite perfumes, and as it ran out earlier this week it's about time i bought some more!

Wedding Fair!

I've a lovely day at today's wedding fair, which took place at the City Rooms, Leicester. The beautiful ballroom was filled with some great suppliers and I met some lovely couples during the day!

I'm looking forward to hearing back from some of them to help them with all their fantastic wedding ideas!

Here are a few photos from the day...

Guests loved our cute little fortune cookie favours and we gave out Origami with out contact details instead of flyers, which went down a treat - people just can't resist playing with them!

Five Senses...

Saw this on a lovely blog that i follow Design Is Mine, so thought i'd jump on the band wagon!
Here's what i'm sensing on this dreary, miserable Wednesday!

I haven't eaten yet today & i've been totally stressed out all day so i'm looking forward to treating myself to a big glass of wine & some Sushi later tonight, along with lots of gossip, bitching & moaning with my best friend!

I opened the door this morning to a huge pile of leaves in front of the door! Autumn is here and the trees outside my house are showing it!

I watched the film "Juno" at the weekend - wasn't sure what to expect as it sounded rubbish but loads of people had said it was really good! Watched it, loved it and can't get one of the songs from the soundtrack out of my head - Adam Green & Kimya Dawson, "Anyone Else But You" Click here to listen :)

Warm & cosy! I gave in and put the central heating on for a bit last night and it was lovely! I love it when its cold and miserable outside and you can get home and snuggle up on the sofa with a nice hot drink :)

I'm loving the smell of my Original Source White Tea & Grapefruit Bath Tea, and can't wait to climb into a lovely bubbly bath later!
