Concrete custard? How very on trend!

Part two - Colour trends for 2015 weddings.

Loving the fact that custard yellow and glacier grey are two of the colours forecast to trend in weddings for 2015 - 

I adore this combination and have been searching around to put together a mood board to inspire you all. 

Just have to wait for a bride to choose these colours now! 

This colour scheme is fabulous for a Spring, woodland theme wedding, but sits equally as well in the urban jungle...

Hope you like this collection (from Pinterest)...
Spray paint is my best friend right now - 
love these old frames that have been revamped

Forsythia, twigs and Lemons in glass vases make a strong contemporary statement - 
I would have added lots of daisies to this too

Very dapper Groomsmen

Chevron invitations & decorations

just look at the detailing on this cake - beautiful! 

and again - home made lemonade as favours or
make it more grown up with egg flip 
or cups of jelly and custard!

Wedding colour trends 2015

Over the next few weeks we shall be picking and choosing our favourite pictures from the internet to show you how to work 2015's top trends and colours...

Here's the first...


We've chosen to mix it with pink and further down the page with pink and gold. 
But it also looks good with silver, blush and lavender, 

here's what we like so far...

Arrive in a pretty pink converted Herbie

Dress your bridesmaids in floaty mint green with pink corsages...
For more mature bridesmaids think of having corsages instead of posies, 
that can be worn on their dress, bag or wrist

Light the reception with paper lanterns and pom poms...
For the best effect use a lot in a small area rather than spreading them too thinly around the room. 

and serve your cakes on vintage china in a mismatch of pinks and mint...

Cakes are tall for 2015 and mismatched - Lots of different sizes and flavours 
- placed on tiered shelving or dedicated cake tables

or add some golds or silver and you have another 
completely bang on trend look ...

send out the invites to set the sparkling scene...

Urns are going to feature a lot in next years weddings decor- 
all shapes, sizes, colours and textures - we love these gold ones

Dress tables and chairs with gold accents, sequins and chiffons

Have a ribbon/sash backdrop made in your colours 
for behind your top table, gift or cake table

Add edible glitter to cake pops

and serve mini moets as favours 
or have them as a warm up on the morning of the wedding 
just for you and your girls 

Go tall with your cake - four and five tiers are predicted to be big for next year as are painted and "gilded" cakes

However you do it - 
we think that mint, pink and gold are a real winning combination! 
Pop back in May to see one of our real weddings, 
where the bride has chosen these colours to see what we do for her! 
Here's a taste of what'to come...

All of the images above can be found on Pinterest under the search "pink mint gold wedding"

Man creche and dog hats! Must be Christmas!

Christmas is now officially on it's way in the Harrison household! 
On Sunday we decided to take a walk down to the local Christmas Market, and were pleasantly surprised. 
First stop was the Christmas Tree Festival at The Methodist Church, Sleaford. This is the 13th year of the festival and it has become a real Christmas tradition for us and a lot of others to visit it each year. There were 85 trees in total - all made by schools, groups, business's and individuals - anyone can enter a tree and it's completely free!!! 

Anniefloribunda's tree

I always enter one for Anniefloribunda now, but this year I entered one for Mr H too (who is a butcher, for those of you who don't know us). 
His tree was The Great British Breakfast Tree 
and made lots of people smile that day! 
There were some really great entries this year. 
Katy Katezart entered a tree made from a wooden pallet and there were gorgeous little miniatures from the local miniaturist club too.

Next stop was the craft fayre at St Denys Church Hall. I'd promised friends I would pop by and support them. Picked up a beautiful glass Christmas bauble from Beatty Mae Vintage and also got a pressie for baby Flo' who is due to arrive on December 10th!

Coming out onto the Market Square, we stopped to listen to the children from Alvey school singing a funny song about the stresses of Christmas shopping - wish I'd videoed it now :-( 

Standing watching the entertainment I got a bit chilly - so popped into The Greek Taverna and warmed up with a scrummy, hot chocolate (with brandy & squirty cream!) - well it is (almost) Christmas!
We missed the Morris Dancers this year much to Steve's disapointment but Loved the Round Table's novel idea of raising money with their "Man Creche" - one of these is needed on every high street!!! 

We walked the whole route of the Christmas Market and popped into EDS on Southgate for a gorgeous glass of Gluwein and hand made Stilton cookies where Arlo modelled his Christmas hat for us! 

Hope you are having as much fun in your run up to Christmas! 

Merry Christmas!!
