It seems an absolute age since I held my sisters vintage inspired hen party. But as promised here are some of the photos of some of the little details of the special day. I made each hen a heart shaped blackboard necklace, of which they could decorate with their own chalk pen. You can buy blank wooden hearts on ebay, and a good quality chalk board paint at good DIY stores if you want to make these yourself!
I also made some drink charms, plenty of bunting, and a notice board (with the help of my best friend!!) for everyone to leave a message on in the form of vintage postcard. We played Mr & Mrs, and pin the kiss on David Beckham, whilst we ate copious amounts of lovely food brought by each of the girls.
It was an amazing afternoon, and the evening was just a lovely as we met up with the Men and went for drinks in a local bar.
Please do excuse some very rushed photography, as i barely had time to take perfect pics as frankly we were having way too much fun to be worrying about photography! Which is how any special day should be 😀
Dear fellow bloggers, just a quick note to let you know I am now on Facebook as well as on my little blog! For all things vintage, colourful and just generally a little bit of everything that makes me happy you can find me at:
Today I am feeling quite awful with a cold (oh i know… awwww!), so doing a little bit of browsing for this weeks Thrifty Thursday post has been a lovely escape from feeling sorry for myself!
This week find comes from buzzfeed.com and is a list of really great thrifty projects for you undertake. My favorites are:
This weeks Thrifty Thursday post comes from a brilliant blog called design sponge.This blog is great for inspirational design! I absolutely love colour and pattern, and because of this, i find vintage scarves a real joy. The different designs can be purchased relatively cheaply, and the colour’s and patterns just completely pop when used together in an idea like this. I love the light quality that comes through these vintage scarf curtains, its very dreamy and relaxing! Maybe not practical for a sleeping space, but for living areas this would be a great alternative to costly, and heavy, imposing curtains!
I have just picked up this pair of vintage jelly moulds from a house local to myself, as i put in a tiny bid of 99p for them on eBay and won! Woop! Don’t you just love eBay?! So yes, for 99p i have got these two beauties, and they will be perfect for the tea party, for making a jelly and then for putting sweets out in as they will look super cute on the table! It really is silly to be so excited over jelly moulds, but these are just gorgeous!
