Ready or not, it’s time for the Christmas posts to begin! I did this fun shoot the other day, the first tutorial of which is now up on Polka Dot Bride.

Gosh, I have missed blogging! I’ve had computer issues (as in, I didn’t have a computer because it died) and then we went on holiday. I am still catching up on work which means I’ve had little time for blog projects, but I have some good stuff on the horizon. I’ve just signed up for another of Holly Becker’s classes so hopefully that will help motivate me back into the blogging swing of things.
In the meantime, here is my latest tutorial for Polka Dot Bride. You could adapt it for everyday life by gluing magnets to the back and instead of table numbers, stamping filing notes (e.g. ‘To pay’ or ‘To file’) or days of the week (to plan your meals).
You can find the full tutorial here.
Hello friends! How are you? The Man and I had a fantastic break in beautiful New Zealand. I’ll share some photos soon, but in the meantime, here is my latest Polka Dot Bride tutorial.
It’s a fabric menu made using iron-on transfers. Something to keep in mind for Christmas perhaps?
You can find all the instructions here.
Yes, I’m still alive! I know I’ve missed a few days of posting recently and have practically dropped off the social media planet and for that I apologise.
There has just been so much going on with the business and other projects that there literally aren’t enough hours in the day to actually work on any house projects, let alone blog about them.
To distract you from that fact, I am going to show you CONFETTI and CAKE!
On the weekend we went to the first birthday party of a good friend’s little girl and it was the cutest party ever! (No surprise that it was so well styled, since she runs the beautiful gift store Table Mantle Pantry.)
How adorable is the mini cake? There was a matching big version too.
Hope your weekend was full of good things too!
With our bathroom having been in a state of mid-renovation chaos for the last few weeks, entertaining friends hasn’t been on the cards.
Now that it’s fit for use again, I’m itching to have some friends over and bust out the bar cart I set up earlier in the year.
Not only does it free up valuable kitchen cupboard space, but you can keep all your entertaining essentials together so there’s less preparation to do when you have guests over for a spontaneous martini.
So this weekend, why don’t you set up a bar cart?
It seems winter is trying to make the most of the last couple of weeks of the season and give us day after day of dreadful weather.
Still, all the rainy days mean it’s perfect weather for baking!
I tried my hand at this citrus mud cake with, shall we say, mixed success. Only halfway through the cooking time it was well and truly browned so (after a quick skewer test) I deemed it ready. Unfortunately it was totally undercooked in the middle. It was very tasty though!
Happily, I had more luck with the cake topper. You can find the tutorial today over on Polka Dot Bride.
Thanks to Little Sweet Styling for lending me the beautiful cake stand.
