I came across this really fabulous way of serving cocktails and thought they would be really stylish at a wedding reception. These cocktails are proscecco popsicles!! You can make them non-alcoholic but these frozen popsicles are both a colourful and fun way to keep your guests refreshed.

Endless Simmer makes these Kir-Royale inspired cocktails with fresh blackberries, lime, creme de cassis and of course prosecco – delicious! For full details on how to make them visit: http://www.endlesssimmer.com/2011/05/26/sunday-brunch-cocktail-on-a-stick/

it’s christmas time…

I know Christmas has been and gone but if you recently got engaged and are thinking of a winter wedding, some of these ideas might help to convince you how romantic it could be. Opt for berries and greenery in your floral arrangements and give your wedding a rich colour scheme of red and green or go with wintery whites and silver for a romantic winter wonderland feel. And I simply love the idea from Etsy of the wedding invite or perhaps table setting in the form of a Christmas bauble.

its time for pie…

Yesterday I attended a little food fair in Barnes where delicious cheeses, meats and cakes were on display. Some of the cakes and pies were mouth wateringly good and with winter on its way (not that you’d know it with these warm temperatures) serve up a treat and opt for a dessert bar of blueberry, apple, pecan or even pumpkin pie which is the perfect accompaniment to a rustic autumn wedding.

Everyone knows that champagne is my favourite choice of drink and weddings are the perfect excuse to enjoy a bit of bubbly. Why not opt to serve it in a unique way in the form of a champagne popsicle. I love the contrast of taking some fun like a popsicle and making it into something elegant with champagne and these gorgeous antique silver forks. It’s the brilliant addition to a quintessential British tea party wedding taking it from afternoon to evening.

it’s a fall wedding…

Over this weekend there has been a definite shift in temperature and a feeling that autumn is well and truly on its way. With this in mind I was inspired by the idea of a fall wedding and as Halloween is round the corner as well why not bear this in mind when planning your wedding.

A colour scheme of rust, orange, cream and gold with possible accents of greenery or charcoal will look gorgeous and why not turn pumpkins into your biggest accessory from vases on your table or decorate the chairs or pews with mini pumpkin floral arrangements.  The candied apples are  cute idea for dessert while the pumpkin cake toppers or simply a traditional American dessert like pumpkin pie would go down a treat.

mini cakes favours…

Now I know these are a bit silly and you’re probably not going to have the patience to sit there icing loads of mini cakes for each of your guests but I just had to share this as pictured on bridal snob. How cute are these mini cake tins? Can you imagine being able to serve them as a wedding favour? I think they are so sweet and I might even be tempted to seek out a cake tin just like this to try them out for myself.
