Aw, with Mother’s Day this weekend it’s the perfect time to organise something special for your incredible Mama! I’m a little in love with this incredibly elegant yet simple table setting styled by the lovely Caitlin Moran for Glitter Guide - the soft gold and green touches are perfection, as is the very sweet name tag with a sprig leaves from the flowers. This weekend really is the time to spoil our wonderful Mama’s for everything they’ve done for us, I’ll be sending all my love to mine as she’s lucky enough to be spending Mothers Day in New York – how wonderful is that! x
Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all had a wonderfully lazy weekend. Is anyone else a little excited that the seasons are starting to change, even though we’re having the most wonderful summer ever I’m craving a little Autumn baking and curling up inside for a little bit. I could hardly believe my eyes when I stumbled upon this beautifully styled farm wedding by Ginny Branch, it has everything a party could want, beautiful favors, delicious sweet treats, beautiful flowers and of course the most gorgeous stacked pancake cake ever! I love that there is a perfect mix of pretty pastels and deep jewel tones throughout the whole setting – it’s simply stunning! x

Oh, today couldn’t get any better! Not only is it St Patricks Day where all things green are celebrated. It’s also my wonderful husband Ben’s Birthday – I’m pretty sure he has the best birthday ever, as everyone is celebrating and happy! It’s also the perfect time to bake delicious goodies that are a little Irish, last year I made Ben the most delicious Chocolate Guinness Cake, this year he asked for Anzac Biscuits, bless. I couldn’t resist sharing these gorgeous, and very clever, Shamrock Macarons from Raspberri Cupcakes they’d be the perfect little treat to enjoy with a glass of baileys – or of course a glass, or two, of birthday Guinness. x

Goodness me, is anyone else finding that this week is zooming by just a little too quickly? I’ve been wonderfully busy baking lots of delicious wedding cakes for a gorgeous mid week wedding, honestly the most lovely job ever! I mentioned in my post the other day that I was asked to be a bridesmaid over the weekend at our friends wedding this year (insert lots of exciting squeals!!!) I only just realised too that it also means planning a wonderful hens night for the lovely bride to be! I can’t think of anything more perfect than this gorgeous collection of What to Wear, by The Big Day to celebrate a very glam night out with a very beautiful bride to be! x

We have been go go go this week with the NZ Gift Fair starting this Sunday! Tonight we collected all the lovely items from On My Hand who have helped style this big event – including a special hand painted sign! We are collecting the rest of our new products from our amazingly talented screen printers tomorrow (nothing like a bit of a deadline to get the heart rate up), making some final amendments to our product booklets just in time to print and of course remembering to breath!
But enough about us – wedding season is in full bloom so this week we dedicated the weekly roundup to some fun finds for some colourful wedding accessories!
1. This something blue is handmade in France by Julie Duchesne and is available through her Etsy store.
2. Looking for some fun accessories to hand out to your guests? How about some chevron pinwheels!
3. How fantastic is this wedding styled by Heima Store and Heim Interiors - loving all the colours and patterns!
4. These cosmetic bags make the perfect bridesmaid gift.
5. Who doesn’t love a yellow chevron table runner – hello happiness!
6. Wanting that extra something at your reception? Try some chevron straws with heart accents – just perfectly over the top cute.
