Oh my goodness, I’m so excited to share a few little picks that I did for the very lovely Adore Home Magazine Blog! It’s such an honour to be able to do posts like these for such a lovely magazine and blog – if you haven’t had a peek yet, you simply must! Which item is your favourite? I’m a little torn between the floral maxi dress and cork and gold pencil holder! I hope everyone is having a lovely day so far and enjoying the slightly cooler weather. xo
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

I hope that everyone has had the most amazing week so far, I’ve been making lots of yummy wedding cakes and planning a few more lovely things for the blog over the coming months – I can’t wait to share it all with you! How cute is this weeks weekly roundup by Toodles Toodles, polka dots and chevron really do make a gorgeous pattern combo – I’m a little in love with the pom pom photo booth and the chevron pinwheels, they’re beyond perfect!

Holy smokes who can believe today is the first day of March! How this year has been flying by…
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.
I hope you all have a fantastic weekend and keep on the lookout for our free March wallpaper designs coming soon! Also, if you live in the Auckland area and are attending the Gift Fair we would love to put a face to the name so come by and say hello!
Oh with Valentines Day only a few days away, could there be anything more wonderful than giving (or receiving) a delicious batch of homemade Red Velvet Kisses! Ben and I don’t really celebrate Valentines Day, but it’s still a lovely excuse to show your loved one how much they mean to you – plus who could resist a little baking! These oh so lovely kisses would look stunning wrapped up in a mason jar or box tied up with twine or even simply stacked in cute little ice cream bowl! Oh and be sure to keep an eye out on the blog and Facebook tomorrow, I have a the most exciting announcement ever!! x

Oh my, could this styled shoot by Grey Likes Weddings be any more perfect! I love the idea of your beautiful bridesmaids wearing bright dresses with gorgeous statement necklaces, it’s stunning! I could gush on forever about this shoot, to me it’s everything a wedding should be, fun, bright and wonderfully thoughtful – I have to admit I’m a little obsessed about the pineapple invites and oh so sweet table setting, it’s too perfect for words! x

Yay happy Friday everyone, how lovely is it that the weekend is upon us again – and not just any weekend a lovely long weekend! Do you have anything special planned or will you be taking it nice and easy? Oh I can’t quite believe that Valentines Day is approaching, how did that happen?! However I am quite smitten with this weeks gorgeous weekly roundup by Toodles Noodles, how incredibly stunning would a luxury picnic be – especially while sipping on pomegranate + vanilla vodka, oh my! Have a wonderful weekend everyone. x
Well it’s that time of the week again – time for our weekly roundup! It’s been quite a week around this neck of the woods.
We moved house and studio last weekend (leaving us without internet until yesterday….sigh), we were super lucky and won tickets for the Auckland Seafood Festival this weekend through Te Awa Winery, and had some lovely birthday celebrations out with friends and delicious cakes from the lovely Made From Scratch.
The shop also had a big week being featured in the Etsy Finds email with our Full of Hearts gift wrap, our Blue bird gift wrap making the front page and our Your My Superhero note cardsmade the new To & From Valentine’s Day Guide - all of which has left me feeling well – a bit lovely dovey!
With Valentine’s Day coming up, I thought I might just theme up this week’s Weekly Roundup with a bit of a romantic feel. We also have heaps of gift tags, cards, prints all for that special day in our shop, so shop on by and have a nosey!
1. These sparkly hearts make the perfect accessory for that sharp blazer or pretty bun!
2. A sweet treat made with bittersweet chocolate is a direct line to my heart.
3. Is there anything better than a luxury picnic with the ones you love?
4. Cold never looked so cute with these leggings.
5. I sure do love a relaxing bath after a long stressful day!
6. Time to spruce up those cocktails…mmm… pomegranate…
I hope you all have had a great week and have fun plans for the weekend ahead! Until next time… x
Oh my, could you think of anything more perfect than a luscious Italian themed party filled with olive trees, lavender and of course delicious food and wine. Styled by the talented Claire from One Lovely Day this stunning setting really would make the most incredible event or wedding – you simply must look at her site, it’s beyond gorgeous! I love that there are so many plants, twinkling fairly lights and oh my how wonderful, and delicious, is the rustic bread for place settings – it’s all just far too perfect for words! x
