bridal shower










i have been looking forward to this one for ages! we were asked to put together a small cake table and favours for a bridal shower held at The Tea Room Gunners Barracks. we were given the design breif of blue, apricot and birds.  

nathalie custom designed the perfect invitation which made it easy for me to design some cute matching birdcage cookies. i have wanted to make a peony sugar flower for ages, i love blue and apricot and have had this cake design in my head for a while now.  i sourced some cute vintage milk glass vases from etsy and cake stand from a local antique store. i then just got mixed 'nanna style' flowers to suit the old fashioned milk glass look.

it was all really beautiful and the venue is gorgeous. i was really happy with how it all turned out, i just wish the lighting was a bit nicer (and i had a bit more time) to get some better photos- oh well, that always seems to happen!
