A bit of a do!!!

Hello lovely bloggers.
Yet again I have sadly neglected my blog, although I do keep up with a few of yours each morning and evening. My few minutes of relaxation in what has been a hectic few months.........

And on Saturday 22 August 2015 all our planning and making and collecting all came together at Heidi and Steve's

Great British Seaside Wedding Fete

Heidi looked stunning in her dress, so all the panic over making it was worth it in the end and I know her dad was completely overwhelmed when he saw her walk down the stairs.

Their two gorgeous little boys were daddy's best men and  Alfie the oldest at 8 even made a speech. he was brilliant.

All the guests wowed us by sticking to the 1950s theme, and there were some stunning outfits.

Food came in the shape of a Fish and Chip Van and an Ice cream van......although a slight delay in proceedings meant many of the younger guests made a start on something else first.....

The guests were entertained with vintage songs by singer, Elaine Bishop,

 and played outside on the various games we had all designed and made over the past few months.

The amazing naked cake was made by Steve's lovely sister Jules...

 and the evening finished off with plenty of cheesy dancing!

I think a good time was had by all and we all breathed a sigh of relief that the Bride's vision had I think been accomplished.

So now its back to reality, washing and ironing, not only all those tablecloths but clothes ready for our visits to two vintage festivals over the next few weeks. So I hope I will be able to share things a bit more regularly now.

Hope you all have a fabulous week,

    2. And many cobgratulations and good wishes to your happy pair.

  4. Thank you so much for sharing such a special day. I bet the speech from your grandson bought a few tears from the guests, how very grown up of him.
