On my post for last months "Monthly Make" I mentioned that I had made 50 plus metres of
bunting, well in the end I made nearly 80 metres.
(I found wrapping it around these empty shoeboxes the best way to keep it tidy.)
Anyway this weekend it was time for the wedding it was made for.
It was a really busy weekend as the reception was in the garden
of my friend Carol who's niece was the bride and it was all hands on deck
to get it all ready in time.
So Friday started with me raiding my garden for greenery to
put into the table flower decorations.
Dozens of different sized jam jars with pretty gold flowers painted on
them were filled with yellow, white and orange flowers for the tables.
Loads of quiches were made for the vegetarians
as the main food was a Hog roast.
My offering was a family favourite of Leek and Goats cheese (a Delia recipe).
Friends had been roped in to act as waitresses or
Elves as they were called, my little one included.
They worked like trojans all day handing out
drinks and laying out the food.
It was then time to put up the decorations.
Patio first with some of the bunting
Around the tables being used as a bar goes the smaller version.
Ribbon flowers tied into the bushes
Then into the Marquee where the cake made by
Carol had pride of place.
Each layer was a different cake mix
one chocolate, one plain sponge and one fruit cake.
More bunting and balloons( there were loads tied
up outside as well)
All ready for the band ( Carols sons)
and the wishing well for cards
I absolutely loved the wedding car.
But poor Albie wasn't sure what was going on,
all these people and nobody would play frisbee with him.
I have to say it was one of the nicest weddings I have been to for a long time
I think possibly because it was all so personal and of course
it was all worth it just to see how happy this beautiful
young lady was.
