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 lovely weekend – how incredible is the weather at the moment, you wouldn’t believe that it’s almost winter with how warm it is! Something very exciting happened in our home over the weekend, after three years of trying to decide on a couch to get we finally found our dream one from Freedom – and it’s perfect!! So now I’m on a little mission to decorate our lovely new lounge room with gorgeous cushions, throws and of course a little humour – how incredibly gorgeous is the dinosaur bookend! We absolutely adore simple white and grey tonnes as a base for everything – but of course I love injecting shocking bursts of colour into the mix, I can’t wait to wander around Sydney this week and pick up a few new goodies for our lounge. x
I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend so far! I’m so excited to be able to share a gorgeous event that is coming up in May – the very lovely Southern Lakes Wedding Show in Queenstown, not only is it held in one of the most beautiful cities in the world it’s also overflowing with the most gorgeous vendors and ideas for your upcoming wedding – I wish I could make it to the event, it sounds incredible! I had the absolute pleasure of having a chat to the very lovely Jaime who’s helping run this wonderful event. To all the gorgeous brides-to-be in and around Queenstown, this really is one event you won’t want to miss. x
What’s your favourite piece of advice for a bride and groom?
Jaime - Take some time out of your planning to relax. Wedding’s can be one of the most stressful things a couple will do in life so it’s best to have some time to your self to regain focus.
What inspired you to start the Southern Lakes Wedding Show?
Queenstown is one of the most beautiful locations in New Zealand and attracts a large number of domestic and international weddings. We wanted to take the stress out of planning by putting our top suppliers in one location to help brides and grooms get a raft of information about their Queenstown Wedding options.
If you could get married in any location where would it be?
Queenstown of course! With the gorgeous mountains and seasons Queenstown is beautiful anytime of the year.
What are you most excited about for this years Southern Lakes Wedding Show?
The Speight’s Man Zone this year will be the main point of difference for the grooms as a lot of males do not want to attend these types of things. It will be a fun “get away from it all” option with the games zone, mobile massages and of course the first Speight’s Beer is Free. The fashion show will also feature some fantastic dresses and will be organised by Tracie Patel of Monarch Model Management. A very well known lady in the fashion show arena

Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all had a glorious weekend. I spent yesterday admiring the gorgeous Grand Wedding Show with some very lovely ladies and my amazing friend who’s getting married this winter, it was such a wonderful way to spend a Sunday! If you were in Auckland, did you manage to go? It was overflowing with so many stunning vendors! Oh, I also stumbled upon this lovely Pastel Blue Petal Chocolate Layer Cake that I’d made for a sweet baby shower a while ago – I love re-finding pretty images hidden on my computer, it’s such a lovely surprise! I still adore how soft the blue is, it’s the perfect hue to match a delicious chocolate layer cake. x
