Hi all, recent weeks have been rather taken over by various plans as I want to hold a vintage tea party for my sisters hen do. She is getting married in August and quite a lot of the creative bits and bobs need to be started. After sitting down and really thinking about it seems there is an awful lot to do, and to plan. Thankfully I have help on hand in the form of my sister and mum, but also my best friend Zena. Me and Zena plan to make some bunting out of bits of material I have around so I will post pictures of the bunting when we have at least started it! But for now I am going to post some pictures of some drink charms I have been making for the girls, to put on the tea cups and wine glasses. I’m not totally decided on if these charms are ok or not, having never made these things before!…i get a bit fussy so any suggestions for improvements i can make would be fantastic. I still have to make a few more, but so far these have been fun, and quick to make, and good for using up odd beads!

I also had a bash at making some chocolate brownies as I would like to serve some at the party, having never made them I was really surprised how easy they were, and how totally gorgeous they were to eat! I think I really struck gold with the recipe I used which was lucky, and honestly they did not last long after being cooked, always a good sign 🙂 However the process of making them was kinda of like being taken to a heavenly chocolate world, only one where you can’t eat the chocolate! how cruel!
