So nice to have a bit of sunshine at long last! Makes the world of difference.
I managed to get out in the garden this weekend, (which is well overdue)...and thought I would share the pickings with you.
Gorgeous 'Hellebores'...braving the cold weather, they bloom in early spring. We have seen these gorgeous little flowers featuring in lots of vintage bouquets, along with peonies, roses and anemones... a simply stunning option for an early sopring Wedding! Great to decorate your wedding tables in little vintage bottles too!

Some new friends....

We always like to have a little scout around at the wedding shows, to find our favourite stands with beautiful products and nice new people to add to our recommendations!
At the show last weekend we came across some lovely people:

Firstly Anna, of Anna Tyler Cakes....
These are just the most gorgeous creations, and very delicious too. Anna has had a passion for cake making since she was a little girl, and her creations are stunning.
Check out her website: www.annatylercakes.co.uk
My favourite is the beautiful tiered number below, with Wedgewood blue icing and delicate patters in white, I can imagine our lasercut designs translating beautifully
(espescially our heart design!)

Here are a few of her other creations, amazing tiered cakes and lovely little miniatures.....

You can contact Anna on 07989 843173 x
