DIY bride - Heart garland tutorial

Thought I'd share with you DIY brides how to make this pretty heart garland. 
Great as a substitute for bunting if your sewing skills are not good, 
made from paper and very easy to make. 

You will need:
Scissors, hole punch, ribbon, paper chain and stickers 
(or pieces of paper cut to 21cm x 4cm - one for each heart).
We used a precut paper chain pack which you can buy in hobby shops
relatively cheaply (ours cost just £1)! 

Fold the end of each strip over about a centimeter,

Attach a sticky label (or selotape) under this flap and bring the other end up to meet it and secure. 

 Your strip will now be folded in half and joined at the ends.
Place the folded paper chain under a hold punch and punch a hole about half way down the chain link. Then make another hole slightly higher. 

Open the chain link up and push the top fold down until all four holes are lined up

Thread the ribbon through all four holes and start again on a new "link". 
Thread on as many as you need and secure each end with a hanging loop knot. 

An easy way to make a fun, alternative to bunting 
that will bring lots of colour to your venue at a very reasonable price! 
Have fun making yours and come back and show us the pictures! 
Ours will be hanging in our shop window tomorrow 
when we change the theme to "Spring Bride"

Pop up bridal window

We've got a pop up window for a few weeks... thought you might like to see some pictures...

Martin Lewis Style Wedding Flowers!!!...

I felt good today. It's been a lovely, crisp, (dare I say it?), Spring day in Lincolnshire and my spirits were lifted every time I caught sight of the bunch of daffodils and tulips on the windowsill. 

It got me thinking, that not many spring brides seem to consider daffodils for their wedding flower. Yet they are so sunny, so bright and soooooooo cheap. 

The perfect flower for a rustic, country wedding. 
Imagine, jugs full of them on each table or all the way down the aisle - 
you could afford to go really over the top - 
plus if you get them from Tesco at the moment, 20p from each bunch goes to cancer charities - 

I've added a piece of vintage lace and a button to mine to make them into a beautifully simple bridal posy... 

 I'm going to add some gypsaphelia to this bunch tomorrow - 
pop back and take a look :-) 
Weddings don't have to cost a fortune to be beautiful!
