Aww, Happy Valentines Day everyone! I thought that I would celebrate this lovely day with one of the sweetest weddings ever from 100 Layer Cake! Ruth and Ed’s beautiful Maine wedding is beyond perfect, it’s so full of love (I’m a little smitten with the giant heart balloons!!) and happy moments, it’s been styled to perfection with the softest of pastels, the brightest of colours and of course the most incredible barn reception ever – it’s truly divine! I hope that everyone is has a wonderful Valentines Day and you’re spoilt rotten by your loved one! xo

Oh my goodness, I honestly don’t have the words to say how thankful I am for the overwhelming response from the 4000 likes post yesterday – you really are the most amazing people in the whole world and you deserve so much more than the gifts that I can offer for you! Thank you all so very much!!
Aww, so with Valentines Day tomorrow is anyone else running around for a last minute and oh so cute gift idea for your loved one? Well if you haven’t already spotted them these gorgeous and incredibly perfect ‘you still make me blush’ DIY cards from Eat Drink Chic would be perfect (how cute is the image in the middle of the girls cheeks blushing!!) especially is pared with some yummy red velvet kisses! I have to admit after almost 8 years together, I still get butterflies and blush a little when I see my hubby, even if it’s just a text, I love it! I hope that tomorrow is full of love, and you’re able to tell the person that still makes you blush how much you love them! xo
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

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
I hope everyone had a lovely Valentines Day yesterday, I baked some heart shaped brownies and had a lovely lazy night in with Ben. For those of you who have followed Made From Scratch for a while, you’ll know that I love having people over for dinner. I also love the idea of always setting the dinner table properly before you eat, it has a magic ability to transform a simple meal into a special meal almost instantly. How beautiful is the table setting laid out by the lovely Nina from Stylizimo for a lunch guest she had recently, you would feel so special sitting down to something like this. x
Happy Valentines Day! I hope everyone is having a lovely day and maybe has something special planned for today with their favourite person. Also how simply stunning is this Valentines themed party by Couture Events, you would feel so so special to be apart of a party like this. What ever your plans are today, I hope it is truly wonderful and full of love. x
I hope everyone had a lovely weekend, we had a slow weekend of pottering around which is nice. I did come across this incredible modern rustic wedding, I love everything about it. It’s so homely, inviting and honestly nothing is better than having amazing food at your wedding! I would love to know what you got up to overt the weekend, you can see more of this gorgeous wedding here.
Also don’t forget the Valentines Day is tomorrow, do you have something special planned?
