October? Really?

I have no clue where this year has gone! It doesn't seem two minutes since we were welcoming Spring and now it's Autumn again. I'm not complaining much because I love the autumn. It's my favourite season. And it's not just because my birthday falls in the Autumn.

We celebrated my birthday last weekend. I'm now a whole year older -24 now! We spend the weekend with our family which we just don't get to do often enough. And look at what John bought for me - pretty flowers for our kitchen.

Don't birthdays always make you feel lucky for the people you have around you.

Weddings: The Traditional Flower Company

Whilst browsing for vintage wedding ideas I came across this little company based in Staffordshire - The Traditional Flower Company. Started by Sam Ellson, The Traditional Flower Company grow all their own flowers which are then handpicked and arranged.

With bridal bouquets from only £45, I think these are ideal for anyone, like myself, who would like a more traditional country-feel wedding rather than modern floral arrangements which are much more commonly seen in florists these days.

Take a look through their gallery to see many examples of their arrangements - many used in wedding settings. Here is a selection I liked to inspire you...

Halloween Cupcakes

Anyone who knows me knows I have a sweet tooth. I also love pretty things - so I totally adore cupcakes!

I'm quite a novice at making my own though so I've been looking for inspiration to make some quirky Halloween cupcakes.

I'm thinking of a chocolate cupcake with an orange frosting, edible glitter, chocolate stars and Halloween themed sweets - oh so bad for you but really yummy! I'm open to suggestions if you have any more ideas.

Here are some ideas I've found for decorations...

Happy Halloween!
