Thank god for my mum, here is the pictures from our centrepiece making bonanza that occurred yesterday! I went and bought out pretty much the entire Taskers supply of flowers and we put the Christmas table cloth down and rolled up our sleeves!
We now have 14 beautiful centrepieces happily sitting in my parents garage and another day booked in to make some more!
I love that each one will be unique and homemade, that’s exactly how I pictured my wedding decoration. Next stop is the fairly lights!
We found our venue yesterday, a beautiful golf club with a set of rooms above it called “the hayloft”. It has exposed roof beams, it has a huge bay window, it has a outside terrace and it has a log burner. Literally the dream package. And even better, because it’s just opened it’s relatively cheap, for now. (I would include pics but we didn’t take any of our own and I don’t want to breach any copyright laws, I watch to many police dramas on the tv and it’s made me really law abiding 😩😂)
I can’t wait to get in there and hang garlands of flowers, fairy lights and tiny picnic baskets full of blooms. There will be nothing “tastefully restrained” about my decoration. Oh no, I want my guests to be smacked in the face with a sucker punch of shabby chic. I literally cannot wait!
In other, related news, here is a flower I made today. I had to cut up an old scarf to make it, but sacrifices must be made and I’m sure anyone would agree, it has been destroyed for a good cause.
