Chelsea in Bloom Display 2017

I’m so excited to say it’s that time of year again. Chelsea is full of flowers and this year there are giraffes every corner too! I feel very privileged to have been asked to create another display for Cosmetics à la Carte, their beautiful boutique on Pavilion Road is now full of African inspired flowers and I thought I would share some more detailed photos with you guys.

Homemade Bouquet

With Mother’s Day in the UK coming up this Sunday I thought I’d share some ideas of gifts you could make at home for the lovely mother figure in your life.

This post is a little how-to and is designed for you to be able to save money by buying individual bouquets of flowers from your local farmer’s market or supermarket and putting them together to create a beautifully bespoke bouquet, worthy to make anyone who receives it smile.

For this post I’ve teamed up with my lovely friend Nicole who bakes all the amazing cakes and biscuits over on her blog Afternoon Crumbs. If you haven’t visited her site, you should definitely head on over to see all of her baked goodness!

I love Valentine’s Day as it’s an excuse to celebrate all the people you love and care about. Nicole and I decided that we would combine our two passions and create something to send to someone you love on Valentine’s day.

Paper Succulent Christmas Wreath DIY

LFK_WreathDIYflowerdetail

On our recent visit to New York, my friend Amy gave me this succulent paper craft kit from Paper Source. I love anything to do with succulents; so this DIY kit was right up my street! I also wanted to see whether I could recreate something that vaguely resembled the design on the packet.

Below is a step by step of how I put the wreath together. The great thing is you could recreate the wreath without the kit by using the same techniques and cutting the flower shapes out of coloured paper.

The kit consisted of:

  • 1 Cardboard Wreath
  • 1 Short Length of Ribbon
  • 4 sets of 10 small succulent shapes
  • 3 sets of 10 medium succulent shapes
  • 3 sets of 10 Large succulent shapes
  • 26 different shaped leaves
  • 3 sets of 10 flatter shaped succulents
  • Double sided tape
  • Adhesive foam squares

1. Cut each of the succulent shapes out. Then using a knife, curl the edges of each of the petals (like curling a ribbon on a present). For the flowers/succulents I curled

Most Curious Wedding Fair

_MG_8767

I’ve been to so many wedding fairs recently that have been such a disappointment! So you can imagine my excitement to find one that brought together a group of beautifully creative people who are really passionate about weddings.

I travelled up to the Most Curious Wedding Fair at the Old Truman Brewery with one of my lovely bridesmaids Nicole. I was so inspired by the unique styles of each of the wedding vendors, so I thought I would share with you some of my favourites. But first check out the awesome catering from the guys at Cereal Killer Cafe (yes that is a Kinder Hippo in my cereal!).
