Know Christmas is over but........

Could not help but bake up another batch of Mince Pies! got the recipe from here. Just the perfect amount of crumbly-ness pastry and some good old fashioned jarred fruit mince. Way too good to just have one. Last batch.....promise (comment directed at ones self!)

Vintage Bunny

Its funny what comes to you when you least expect it! We have only just finished talking about an up and coming bunny party for a 2 year old little girl and voila! this gorgeous specimen was discovered at my dear aunts house. It was her egg cup as a little girl! So thank you aunt Helen, it will be loved and returned with great care! xxx

Family Christmas Lunch

Last weekend we were asked to put together a family gathering to celebrate Christmas. The space was surrounded by beautiful gardens which we took inspiration from and kept it fresh and green. The space was so lovely and had great natural light which made our job so much easier!

Along with the main dining table, we made up a little "Christmas Treats" table which featured homemade Mince Pies, Eggnog and some beautiful White Christmas one of the lovely guests brought along, so good we had to have a few pieces ourselves!!

A creamy nut encrusted fudge and spicy onion jam was made for a little take home favor for the guests.

We kept the decorations natural, using fabric, paper doilies, craft paper and hessian to highlight the space. Gorgeous white-green Hydrangeas added to the fresh feel.

All in all a lovely event....roll on Christmas!

Rainbow Party!!

Little Pear had so much fun creating a rainbow party on the weekend, it was lovely to be able to go crazy with colour, even though the storm brewed (heavy rain and hail!) a good time was had by all!

We wanted to create the rainbow feel but still with a natural tone which was done using vintage wooden crates, linen and hessian. Also with the printing of food,water and goody bag labels (done on craft card stock). Handmade birds and clouds hung from above as well as a HUGE yellow balloon adding sunshine to the table!

Rainbow jelly and lollypops added colour as did all the coloured gumballs, jellybeans and chocolate crackles.

Cute DIY pinwheels and little mustaches kept the guests happy outside under cover where we set up a cute photo op area!

The rainbow cake was the amazing finale with custom designed mini bunting. Once the cake was sliced it was rainbow happiness all round!
