No one needs fancy crystal or vintage cut glass vases. These photos  a) are lovely and b) show you that using bits you find around your house can be equally as effective, cheaper and, in my opinion, look a whole lot cooler  than buying new fancy shmancy pots to put your wedding or party flowers in…..


Get saving your jars, pots and milk bottles to use in your next flowery party!

Ballroom Blitz

We can’t ever forget the horrors of war on a home front, but nor should we ever forget the amazing sense of community that was bourne out of such hardship in 1940s Britain. Blighty without a party? Not bloody likely, Johnny Foreigner!

Wedding Entrance

This is so lovely! I smiled the entire way through. This has got to be the happiest wedding entrance ever in the history of weddings.

Lemon Wedding

Yet more evidence that you don’t have to spend a fortune to have a sweet, romantic wedding.

I absolutely looove these pictures. Lets be honest, the only thing you really need for a gorgeous al fresco wedding is sunshine, but half the fun of the wedding is the planning right? You need something to occupy you while you wait and pray like you’ve never prayed before for the sun! So here, fruit! Suprisingly dreamy looking and cheap as chips. Plus perfect for the drinks later!
