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 Friday everyone, I hope you’ve all had the most incredible week so far! I’m beyond thrilled and so excited to be able to share a this stunning lavender shoot styled by the incredibly talented Casey from The Heirloom that I had the absolute honour of making a lovely tired petal cake for. I could gush forever about the dresses, flowers, stunning venue and of course the hugely talented people involved – the whole shoot really is far too perfect for words. x

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!
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
Happy Friday everyone – how lovely is it that the sun is shining, it’s so much nicer than cold rain! I’m beyond excited and so flattered to be able to share this stunning styled shoot with you, I love that gold is so popular at the moment, it’s just so pretty and works so beautifully with lovely soft pastels! How absolutely stunning is the soft table setting styled by the enormously talented All the Frills, you would feel oh so special dining at that table then getting to enjoy a few sweet treats from the dessert table by Bluebells Cakery before smashing the living day lights out of gilded piñata - it sounds like the perfect party!! This beautiful shoot was perfectly organised and photographed by the wonderfully talented Ellie from Jel Photography – she also made a little time lapse of the day, it’s so fantastic you have to watch it! I hope everyone has an exciting weekend planned, I’d love to hear what your up to – I’m hosting a delicious baking class tomorrow, then lunching with friends on Sunday – I can’t wait. x
Happy Monday everyone! I am so excited to show part two of the Abbeville Styled Shoot that I organised and styled a few weeks ago with some very lovely and talented ladies. The delicious goodies on the dessert table were made by some very talented bakers, Sophie from Cake Pop Kitchen made the amazing cake pops, Lucy made the to die for white chocolate truffles and I whipped up all three cakes and the sweet little meringues. The gorgeous drinks table was styled by the wonderfully talented On My Hand – they also very generously supplied all the stunning props that you see on the drinks and dessert table! The oh so pretty and elegant props for the dining table were supplied by Abbeville Estate the flowers by Blush Flowers, and wonderfully photographed by Poppy Moss. I am beyond proud of how this shoot turned out and forever thankful for all the help I had bringing it to life – I still have one more pretty post to come. I hope you enjoy the photos as much as we do. x
I have to say, I’m a little over winter it feels like it’s been raining and cold for so so long – so I thought that I would lift everyones mood a little with this stunning beach wedding from We Love Pictures to remind you the summer does exist and hopefully it’s not too far away! I hope that you are all having a glorious week so far, I have a few very exciting projects planned for the weekend that a few very lovely ladies and I have been busy working on – I can’t wait to tell you more about it. But for now admire this gorgeous wedding with the sweetest laser cut wooden favors, delicate babies breath for the flowers and delicious summery cocktails. x
