Design your own Party Dress!

But without all the fuss! Put away your tailoring scissors and leave the sewing machine under its cover – three have found the answer to your prayers – the kind of prayers offered up on a shopping trip when you know *exactly* what you want to wear to that houseparty, but you can’t find it anywhere…

Happy Papa’s Day!

   fathersday                                                     A belated Happy Father’s Day to all Dad’s out there!

What did you guys get up to with your Dad?

I took mine out for an afternoon tea at the Waterloo Gardens Teahouse, in Cardiff. For a mere £9.50 a head, we had a lovely lunch of delicious sandwiches, odd cakes (Courgette and Lime, anyone?!), and the largest selection of  teas I’ve ever seen (hello rosebud tea!). My Dad and me chose the chinese breakfast tea, which had a hint of chocolate. YUM! We had fun pretending to be tea experts. waterlooteaHere’s a linky: http://www.waterlootea.com/ . It comes with the Three seal of approval.

We then took a nice walk to the Bay to walk off some of the cake belly.

It didn’t cost the earth, but my Dad said he had a nice day – and that’s all that counts.

Nature’s Bounty

Ahhhhh! Flowers! There’s nothing like flowers to brighten up a day – unless, like me, you are a hayfever sufferer. They tend to fug up a day rather than brighten it. Still, hayfever couldn’t have got ay worse yesterday when I was out walking the dog, so I thought “Allergens be damned” and went flower hunting. And lookit!

Another Wedding Dress…

…but this one is not by Vivienne Westwood, and nor does it cost £1.8 million! We were feeling pretty rubbish for going off message and showing you those beautiful but ridonkulously expensive frocks, but lo! On a shopping trip in a small seaside town we made amends – Looksie:

Lord, What fools these mortals be…

We’re having a Midsummer Night’s Party, to celebrate the improved weather (although as I write it’s raining…). The picture of opulence and excess, we thought this would be the perfect theme to prove that a fabulous gathering can be had on the cheap! We’ll be logging our progress right here for you to see. 

Merry and Tragical! Tedious and Brief! That is, hot ice and wonderous strange snow. How shall we find the concorde of this discorde?

Theseus, Act 1,  A Midsummer Night’s Dream

How indeed, Billy Shakes?! How indeed. Stay tuned to find out about the concorde of our discorde…

 Please Note: British Summertime = crap. We had to call this one off due to monsoon rains – boo! Never ones to disappoint folks that we’ve promised a party, we’re now organising THIS! Go check it out!

Ancient and Amazing!

If these wrinkly lovelies can teach us anything on their 100th birthday (apart from how to live for a century) it’s how to have a cheap and extremely cheerful celebration.

Cake of the Week #3 – Go cake yourself!

Have you ever thought to yourself, ‘Wouldn’t it be cool if I could have a twin, made of cake, who could sit on a table at my party waiting to be scoffed by my guests’? Of course you have!

Well instead of it being just a fantasy, this bride went ahead and booted the tiny groom off the top of the tiered wedding cake and instead just made one massive bride. Herself.

Egotistical? Yes. Just a little bit amazing? DEFINATELY!
