Pink and white Spring fun!

 

 

This Saturday, we had the honour to cater and setup an intimate kitchen tea. The theme was an early Spring celebration with pink and white decor. The ladies came dressed in their best floral dresses, ready to relax and be treated. On the menu, was a variety of sweet and savoury goodies. What a fun day!

And and big thank you to Thurusha Sivaraja for the awesome pics!

Wedding favours - Amea & Abri - 13.12.14

 

 

We had the pleasure of creating and designing an affordable and beautiful wedding favour, for the lovey couple - Amea and Abri.

 

52 jars and tags. 260 sugar cookies later - we had our favours! The  idea was to keep it simple but charming. The theme was country and vintage! My fav! :)

 

We have such great fun putting these together! :)
