Wouldn’t it be brilliant to see these peeking under a wedding dress?
Then have this as part of your wedding stationery?
Have cosmo jelly shots as your arrival drinks.
Offer these as wedding favours.
Then spend your wedding night here?
I double dare you!
Jam. I think I eat it nearly everyday, my favourite is raspberry. I like the bits.
I do think that favours should be edible, mainly because I enjoying eating and do not enjoy clutter. They can be adorned with beautiful name places or thank you notes and swathed in ribbon. Jam can be seasonal so would suit any time of the year and collecting all those jam jars is eco-friendly! So, a few months beforehand, put on a low cut cashmere top, wrap an apron around your waist and get all Nigella. Pouting is a must.
1. Mix the berries and sugar together in a preserving pan and add the lemon juice.
2. Warm the mixture over a low heat, stirring occasionally until the sugar has dissolved.
3. Increase the heat and bring to the boil.
4. Cook at a fast boil for about 15-20 minutes until the jam thickens. Test for setting point by spooning a teaspoon of the jam on a chilled saucer. After a minute, push your finger through the jam – if the surface wrinkles, it’s ready for potting. If you would prefer to use a sugar thermometer it will read 110C when the jam is at setting point.
5. Pot the jam into sterilised jars, cover and seal tightly. Label and store in a cool, dry place.
Sadly this post is not about the brilliant arcade game, but about jewellery. Until you get engaged, you aren’t really aware of people looking at your hands. But they do. They look at the ring. Then on your wedding day, people spend it wanting to see your same hand, but with the addition of a wedding band. Its bizarre. But its true. So why not put something beautiful on your other hand? It probably feels left out…
So much prettiness for one blog post really! Will you be wearing Bambi on your wedding day?

…dilly dilly, lavender’s green. When I am King, dilly dilly, you shall be Queen.
Make a simple syrup by combining the sugar with 500mls of water in a saucepan and boil until the sugar dissolves, it takes roughly about 1 minute.
Remove from heat, add the lavender blooms and cover. Let stand for 1 hour, or up to 4 hours.
Strain syrup and discard lavender
Decant in to a beautiful vintage bottle (or any odd one you can find)
You know what would go fantastically with this mood board? A peach bellini. Did you all have tropical thunderstorms today? It is now lovely outside but my longing for a picnic has subsided, perhaps tomorrow.
