{WEDDINGS} A Thought For The Kids

If you've decided to invite children to your wedding, your guests will really appreciate a game plan for the little ones! It may be an extra effort on your part, but when they're occupied on the day, you'll be pleased you organised something to keep them happy. 

KidsActivitiesForWeddings

Activity books, colouring books, quiet games like Hangman and Noughts & Crosses can be a great idea.

Another fun idea is putting together little crafts kits like this Jewellery Making kit which The Little Party Company did recently finished off with a favour tag designed by Dindindies!

Here's some more packaging ideas I got from Pinterest.

{WEDDING CAKE TOPPER} Diamanté, pearl & rhinestone Wedding Cake Topper

I was recently asked if I could make a wedding topper using beads. I used a mix of diamantés, pearl & clear rhinestones of all different sizes. The Topper was cut on heavy weight cream pearlised card. Had such fun working on this topper and was so pleased how it turned out.

How beautiful is this cake made by Maggs Dunn. I just love all the small details on this cake - especially the money. You can see that this bride and groom love to travel!

{GOURMET MUMS} Wedding Cake

My very talented friend Filipa over at Gourmet Mum recently made this beautiful 3 tier wedding cake for a friends wedding.

She put so much thought and hours of love (and like 100 eggs!) in to this cake and should be very proud of the result - considering wedding cake making is not something she does regularly!

Three tiers covered with white buttercream, slightly textured using a pallet knife and white chocolate drip covered in iridescent gold edible paint.

Each tier was a different cake to reflect the personalities of the bride and groom. The first tier was ginger and lemon, a nod to the grooms' West Indian roots. Second tier was a Victorian sponge with jam made from Haribo Goldbears - the brides favourite sweets! **Check out this article on how to make jam from gummy bears** The final tier was a peri-chocolate brownie cake, a symbol of their love for Nando's - hence the cute little Nando style chicken bride and groom!

The cake was topped with one of our sparkly gold cake toppers - Mr & Mrs Stevens!
