wandin valley open day

a few weeks ago i attended the wandin hunter valley open day along with my friends lily and bramwell and wandins other preferred suppliers. wandin estate is one of my most favourite venues in the hunter valley- the space is fantastic, the food + wine is great and the staff are super lovely. there was lots of cake for everyone and my table was made extra pretty with props by lily and bramwell! (more pics and details on their blog)

instagram and opsm

umm just what i need another distraction... or another something to do as soon as i am waiting somewhere for more than 10 seconds... i am finally on instagram! please follow me @hellonaomicakes!

my mobile camera is pretty limiting- it would be nice to be able to use my cannon- but practical-ness wins and it is nice being able to document the cute details behind the scenes of running my business... like yesterday!! ...

yesterday i catered a stunning high tea for an opsm pr summer launch party, styled by megan morton. i spent all week preparing- i made a gazillion cakes, sweets, gourmet sandwiches, savoury tarts- enough to fill 40 of these cute cake stands- this was a new, massive challenge for me and somehow it all worked out- the whole party and the food looked so, so amazing! but alll that work and i didnt have one spare second to get any photos!! luckily i took ONE on instagram *phew!!* at least i have something to show for it and something to blog about! and luckily i was also able to see heaps of other pics from the party tagged with #opsmsun 

thanks to megan morton for the challenge, thanks so much to lily and bramwell- they are two of the loveliest friends you could ask for- and thanks so much to my one in an infinity sister x
