Hot chocolate jar homemade gift with free printable label

My latest project is up on Polka Dot Bride.

It was designed as a sweet wedding favour, but without the wedding-specific label it would make a great idea for homemade Christmas gifts.

Check out the full post!

P.S. Don’t forget about the free blog event I’m speaking at tonight at Woodcroft Library! Meet some likeminded people and ask some local lifestyle bloggers about why they blog and the future of the industry. Hope to see you there!

Homemade lemon curd favours

So here’s the reason why I had a batch of homemade lemon curd sitting in my fridge last week! It’s a lovely hostess gift or wedding favour, especially if you have your own lemon tree (or know someone who does).

If you want to keep it all to yourself, you can pop it into readymade meringue or tart cases for an easy dessert or even just slather it onto a thick slice of fresh bread and top with quark cheese, cream cheese or cream.

Head over to Polka Dot Bride for the recipe plus the cute tag for you to print.

Alicia & Ryan wedding CD

Having contemporary, meaningful music as part of our wedding celebrations was really imporant for The Man and I. Thankfully we have very similar tastes in music so agreeing on songs was easy. The  hard part was finding songs that were appropriate for the occasion… it seems most of our favourite songs are about unrequited love or breaking up!

Alicia & Ryan wedding CD

I wanted to create a mix CD for us when we’re feeling mushy and to share our music taste and sentiment with our guests. Here’s the selection of the special songs from the day, some sung by a choir. Yes, people, we had a freakin’ choir.

Gorecki (Lamb) – Processional

Sew My Name (Josh Pyke – sung by choir) – Register signing (sorry, could only find a shoddy live recording for the playlist)

You’ve Got The Love (Florence and the Machine) – First dance

God Only Knows (The Beach Boys – sung by choir) – Recessional

This Old Love (Lior – sung by choir)

Hallelujah (Jeff Buckley – sung by choir) – Register signing

Happy Together (The Turtles – sung by choir) – Recessional

Such Great Heights (The Postal Service)

Harmony to my Heartbeat (Sally Seltmann) – Cake cutting

Bus Ride (Alex Lloyd)

On This Side (Clare Bowditch)

Learnalittlegivinandloving (Gotye) – Our entrance at reception

All I Want Is You (U2)

Steal My Kisses (Ben Harper)

Space They Cannot Touch (Kate Miller-Heidke)

Sweet Disposition (Temper Trap)

First Day of My Life (Bright Eyes) – Cake cutting

You can listen to the (flipping awesome) playlist here.
