Mention the colour Peach in relation to weddings to people of a certain age and they’ll probably pull a face and proceed to tell you about a 1980s wedding they went to full of puffy sleeves, satin and lace (or in my case wore the colour as a bridesmaid)

 

OK, so peach weddings then may look a little dated now but it’s still a pretty colour..honest.

 

 

 Thanks to Joyce Daley at From This Side Of  The Pond

 

But wait! There seems to be a resurgence of this less-than-popular shade..and you know what,  it looks amazing! Teamed with a gorgeous pale mint shade or with touches of  aqua for example,  peach is looking …well,  peachy!

Someone who chose peach shades for their recent wedding was the lovely,  talented photographer Binky Nixon.

 

I asked Binky why she chose peach…

 

“Being a wedding photographer I had heard so many people saying we are doing modern colours, no puffball 80s dresses in the colour peach. It got me thinking, actually I love the colour peach and I’m a child of the 80s, so let’s try and revive it, let’s bring it back and show people how fabulous it can look!

 

With a late September wedding, I knew flower-wise we were entering into the autumnal colours, so oranges and lighter shades of it would be easy for my florist to source. I gave the bridesmaids a swatch to work from and they all picked exactly what they wanted. For the ushers, we ordered peach polka dot bow ties from Etsy..it all tied in quite nicely.

 

I think the third and final reason was, I had never shot a peach themed wedding so jumped to do it for my own”

 

As you can see from Binky’s beautiful wedding pictures below, they exactly prove why peach is a fabulous colour scheme for any modern wedding. I love the fact that the bridesmaids got a colour swatch to work from – the result being an array of beautifully toned dresses that suit each individual bridesmaid

Even the wedding transport was chosen to match the peachy shades and the whole effect is stunning.

 

Binky’s gorgeous peach flowers mixed with the calm green succulents look amazing in her bouquet.

Choose your own peach-toned transport like a gorgeous VW campervan to carry you and your bridesmaids to the ceremony

If you’re unsure about using peachy tones for your bridesmaids, choose a beautiful shade of mint or pale green for the bridal party which will tone beautifully and keep the peach tones for your bouquet.

For the Groom, use succulents and peach flowers for buttonholes, teamed with a mint bowtie.

The whole orange spectrum is quite overlooked for weddings but using shades like peach, coral and apricot can create a pretty nostalgic feel to your decor too.

The love affair with vintage will never fade – and James and Emily’s wedding managed to combine the glory of a bygone era with some whimsical nods to very modern styling.

 

Melissa at Happy Confetti Photography asked gorgeous bride Emily to give an overview of her day:

 

“James and I have known each other for 14 years, and although anyone close to us could have told you that we were a perfect match, it took 11 years for us to finally go from “just friends” to “couple”.

 

James is originally from Tokyo and moved back for five years to go to art school. We always kept in touch, though, and it didn’t take too long after he moved back to the states for us to finally get together. The wait was worth it.

 

We wanted our wedding to be a relaxed, warm, personal affair. We really wanted it to reflect our personalities and feel like a big party. We found the venue first and let the style go from there. We chose Los Angeles because we both love the city (I’m a born and raised Angeleno) and for a while we lived not far from the venue. Things really came together after James designed the invitations. I have a pretty crafty family and spent a few days with some great ladies making the decorations.”

My advice for brides is to start small and let the inspiration go from there. Pick a fabric or one design element you really want to incorporate and things will blossom.

 

Ask for help! People like to help and often have great ideas. I thought I could manage the whole thing but no one can. We didn’t get an event planner, but we did have someone for that day, which was a tremendous help. You really won’t have time to oversee it all on the day of.

 

Take time to pick the right venue, finding somewhere you really love makes all the difference. Pick a photographer whose work you love, too. The big day is such a blur that you won’t have time to really appreciate all the little details you worked so hard on, and seeing wonderful pictures after the fact feels amazing!

 

Above all else, stay true to yourself and your idea of the perfect day. You will feel overwhelmed and stressed and worried but just remember that nothing that can go wrong can ruin the most important part, you are in love and getting married to someone who loves you!

 

Oh – and have fun!

Big thanks to Melissa from Happy Confetti Photography for sharing this gorgeous vintage celebration with us!

Hi, it’s Lydia here again from Lydia Stamps Photography.

 

This year I’ve been here on LoveLuxe giving you guys some of my top tips to help you get the most awesome wedding photos possible. So far we’ve looked at ways you can help your photographer capture the best record of your day through having an engagement shoot, and a few tips for the bridal preparations and the ceremony.

 

Today I’m looking at the couple’s shoot. This is one of the most special and important parts of the day, and all too often it’s rushed, or swept under the carpet due to time constraints or nerves but of course everyone wants that beautiful photograph of themselves and their new spouse looking happy, glowing and beautiful on their big day, brimming with love and the elation that you only feel on that one day. So, I’ve got my top five easy tips for you to help your photographers capture some beautiful wedding portraits for you.

 

 

Photograph by Lydia Stamps Photography

 

1) Have an Engagement Shoot

 

I’ve already covered just how having an engagement shoot will help the final record of your photographs in an article here, but it really is just so useful, and makes such a difference that I wanted to re-iterate it in this post. Having an engagement shoot gives you the chance to meet your photographer and get relaxed with them and their camera before the big day when you’re likely to be more anxious. If you’re stressed or nervous it definitely shows up on film so having an engagement shoot will mean you can go through the motions during your couple’s shoot like a pro on the day.

 

One of the positive results of an engagement shoot, as I mentioned is getting to know your photographer and getting relaxed around them as well as getting a taste for how they work. Trusting your photographer is one of the key components for getting awesome couple shots. I hope you’ve chosen your photographer because you love their creativity and their style _ because they’re an expert in their field. So, with this in mind let their imagination _ creativity run free for the best possible results! If they ask you to sit on a tractor/fence/wade into a cornfield/or kick your shoes off and get in the sea GO FOR IT. Or if they ask you to nip outside between the main and dessert because there is beautiful golden sunset light which you’ll miss otherwise- DO IT. Your photographer has an eye for what will look good on camera, _ they’ll want to give you the best photographs possible so trust them. You don’t get to do the day again, and things like the right light make a huge difference.

 

A key example of one of my client’s really ‘going with me’ was at a wedding I shot back in April in Bournemouth. It’s been hot and sunny for a few weeks now, but back then we hadn’t seen the sun for months and on this April Saturday it was a beautiful hot sunny day after a week of rain. The plan had been to do the bridal portraits in the gardens surrounding the hotel, but as it was such a gorgeous day and we were minutes from the beach I thought it was too good an opportunity to miss and so I booked the couple a taxi down to the beach to arrive mid way through their drinks reception- just after the group photos and confetti. After the ceremony I told them about my idea and they were both so surprised and excited about getting away for a some time just the two of them and for a bit of a spontaneous adventure! The resulting images are some of my favourites and they absolutely love them too. It would have been very easy for them to say- ‘no we’d rather not’, and to stick with the plan, but in trusting me and having a sense of adventure they got some wedding portraits they’d only ever dreamed of, as well as an experience they weren’t expecting, adding an extra dimension to the whole day!

2) Make Time for Your Portraits

 

Of course you don’t want to be kept from your wedding _ guests for hours but it is important to make some time for your couples’ shoot. I usually request twenty minutes to half an hour with my couples so I’m not keeping them from the party too long, but for enough time to get them relaxed and to get the creative juices flowing. If your photographer is up against the clock and rushing you round various locations at your venue the whole experience is likely to be stressful and unpleasant rather than relaxing _ enjoyable. As I’ve mentioned, being relaxed is really important for your couple’s shoot, it’s probably the most important factor as if you’re uncomfortable then it will really come across. This topic leads me to my next tip-

 

 3) Get Away from your Guests! 

 

Another way to keep you as relaxed as possible is to choose a location well away from the prying eyes of your guests. You just wont be able to relax and focus if the best man is heckling you while you’re trying to look lovingly into your other half’s eyes, and I have even had keen amateur guests offer to second shoot the couple’s portraits- again not so relaxing if Uncle Bob is watching your snog your beloved passionately! This might be the only time during the day that you and your betrothed get to yourselves so find a nice secluded spot for a bit of peace, quiet and privacy.

 

Lots of my couples have surprised themselves by saying it was one of their favourite parts of the day, when in advance they were so nervous about it, as it got them away from worrying about whether Aunty June was talking to her estranged husband and whether the canapés were coming out on time!

 

Not all venues have a plethora of secluded locations available and so sometimes it’s good to consider off site options. I have done shoots at fields or woodlands en route to the reception venue from the church allowing the couple to make a bit of an entrance and be greeted by their guests in applause. I’ve also or taken my couples off for a drive up a pretty village lane round the corner in my trusty Yaris!

 

Another option is to leave the ceremony venue promptly and to shoot your portraits as soon as you arrive at your venue, while the guests are finding their cars, and making their way to the venue. It’s also possible to split your shoot into chunks and make use of the ten to fifteen minutes when your guests are called into sit down for dinner. It always takes a little time for everyone to get settled so it’s a great time to make the most of and take a few snaps- again, allowing you to make your entrance!

4) Consider the time of day your portaits will be taken, and the available light.

 

Now, this may sound silly but if you love light, fresh and bright photographs, but your ceremony is at 4pm in December then you may be disappointed. When you’re planning your wedding take into consideration that your photographer will need as much available natural light as possible. Of course it’s possible to do all sorts of fabulous things with creative flash but personally I think you can’t beat beautiful natural light.

 

I’m a huge fan of what us photographers call ‘the golden hour’, and if you also love golden, sunset shots consider having your portraits after dinner, before the first dance. You’ll have had a few drinks so if you’re nervous in front of the camera this is great for some dutch courage! On a hot day it’s also an advantage as the sun is less dazzling and the light is simply beautiful. This is ideal between June and August but as September approaches the nights do drawn in alarmingly fast so check those sunset times!

5) Get Creative- Add props and character! 

 

My final tip is to get creative!! Why not express your creativity, show your character, or extend your wedding theme with a fun prop? Both musicians? Bring the instruments along! Having a dinosaur theme?  Get some masks! I am so excited to be photographing a farmer’s wedding next year which will feature a portrait of the bride with her pet cow!! Fun photos like this will provide a bit of interest and will also be brilliant ice breakers for you and your photographer to get into it before moving onto the more romantic, classic poses.

 

One of my very first weddings was with this fabulous couple who had a movie themed wedding as they’re both major film buffs. So, they bought along a clacket board, and a couple of inflatable guitars as they wanted to be rock stars for the day! I also have a chalk board I often bring along to weddings which is a useful prop for writing messages to guests who couldn’t make it, or for use afterwards on a thank you card.

So, there you have it. My top five tips. I hope this has been useful, and given you a bit of food for thought on how you can get the very best possible portraits of you and your loved one on the day. Most importantly above all else, relax and enjoy the moment of creating a beautiful record of your wedding as it will all pass by so quickly!

Fashion: Three Ways to Wear Tailoring http://www.loveluxeblog.com/fashion-three-ways-to-wear-tailoring/ http://www.loveluxeblog.com/fashion-three-ways-to-wear-tailoring/#comments Mon, 25 Nov 2013 19:23:12 +0000 Jo Cotterell http://www.loveluxeblog.com/?p=19889  
The shops are filled with pencil skirts, slim-legged trousers and for the very brave, short suits. I’ve styled three looks which embrace this form-flattering trend but I’ve done it my way, so expect leather, neon pink and some beautiful heels.
 
Tailored Shorts
 
[read more]]]>
Normally you’d find me twirling away in a skater-style dress, but this time I wanted to do things a little differently and talk tailoring. Now, as someone who prefers the terms ‘over-sized’ and ‘slouchy’, tailoring is a subject I normally shy away from. However, every now and then I think I should aim to look a little neater, more pulled together and genuinely be brave enough to embrace my curves and flatter them in some well-tailored garments.

 

The shops are filled with pencil skirts, slim-legged trousers and for the very brave, short suits. I’ve styled three looks which embrace this form-flattering trend but I’ve done it my way, so expect leather, neon pink and some beautiful heels.

 

Tailored Shorts

 

Don’t be shy about getting your pins out. Tailored shorts, when you find the right ones, can be extremely flattering. Choose a pair that rise high enough on your waist to elongate your body and that end on a part of your legs that you’re happy about. Bum skimmers need not apply. A geometric pattern looks incredibly chic and smart, so can be dressed up with a shirt or blouse or dressed down with a tee and flat sandals. Simply add tights to beat the winter chill.

 

tailored shorts
1. Cos The Serpentine Shirt, £55
2. Reiss Rosie Geo Print Silk Shorts, £95
3. Kurt Geiger Isabella , £195
4. Topshop Premium Chain Rhinestone Pave Collar, £50

 

Tailored Skirt

 

I am a massive leather skirt fanatic. In winter I have a leather skater skirt that I live in, so it’s definitely time to upgrade to a different style. There are loads of leather pencil skirts out there so be sure to shop around to find the right one. Just like the shorts, I want my pencil skirt to be high waisted, highlighting the smallest part of the body. I love the idea of pairing something tough with something delicate, so a little silk cami is a perfect match. Again tees and shirts work equally well. For a hit of colour finish the look with a bright cropped jacket.

 

tailored skirt
1. Topshop Strappy V-Neck Cami, £18
2. Whistles Wrap Leather Pencil Skirt, £275
3. Topshop Crepe Notch Neck Jacket, £55
3. Kurt Geiger Cristal, £120

 

Tailored Trousers

 

The trouser is possibly the holy grail of tailoring. Save black and navy for the long winter months, instead opting for bright pinks, reds and purples. If you’re feeling really bold then choose a patterned pair. Just be sure to balance with a neutralising top. I love the ease of a smart trouser paired with a crisp white shirt.

 

tailored trousers
1. Topshop Short Sleeve White Shirt, £18
2. Reiss Paris Til Raspberry Slim Trouser, £89
3. Topshop Premium Stone Flower Necklace, £65
4. Topshop Ratchet Block Strappy Heels, £50

 

Be safe in the knowledge that whatever the occasion, there is a tailored outfit with your name on.

This month at Boutique Blooms we’ve been busy with weddings, meeting new clients and hosting our own Wedding Flowers Workshops for those of you who fancy giving your wedding flowers a go yourself! The wedding I would like to share with you today is the wedding of Mr _ Mrs Flowers…yes that is their real name! Manuela _ Ian were having a Tudor themed wedding at the beautiful Carew Manor in Surrey. Carew Manor is set in the grounds of a beautiful park and dates back to medieval times with wonderful wooden clad walls and a very pretty dovecot outside too. They wanted the flowers to be in keeping with the Tudor theme and the colours similar to that of an autumnal palette.

At the initial wedding flowers consultation with Manuela _ Ian we talked in great detail about how they envisaged their wedding day, the other details they had planned including a Henry the 8th master of ceremonies and of course…flowers! Ian’s back ground in performing arts and a joint interest in history in particular the medieval times, the couple decided on a Tudor themed wedding.  Manuela and Ian were having a traditional church ceremony followed by a reception at the historic Carew Manor. Both keen gardeners, the pair new that like their garden they wanted natural looking flowers, the kind of flowers you would find in country hedgerow.

I researched what typical Tudor flowers were and a great deal of the inspiration came from flowers depicted in medieval art and tapestries. Roses were heavily depicted in this imagery and so I suggested this be one of the focal flowers. We also included poppy seed heads, chrysanthemum blooms, clematis, dahlias, berries, rosehips, flowering mint and rosemary. The mint and rosemary inspired by the apothecary gardens typical of this time. The colour palette started initially as autumnal; rich reds and burnt oranges. However as the wedding plans progressed the addition of a rich burgundy and plum purple were added to the colour palette which added quite an opulent feel to the flowers and also tying in nicely with the bridesmaid gowns. I also found that great feasts and banquets were featured in my research so I suggested that for the table centres we incorporate fruits, such as pomegranates, figs and bunches of grapes.

I also suggested that it would be nice if we could somehow include another texture into the table centres such as wood or bark, we decided on wooden logs stumps which provided the perfect platform the flower arrangements. Manuela _ Ian had mentioned that they had tried to source a suit of armour but had instead settled with a figurine cut out. I suggested that it would be a lovely idea to have flowers cascading from a knights helmet. After much searching Ian found an amazing knights helmet which became the dramatic top table centrepiece.

Manuela _ Ian were fantastic clients to work with as they were wonderfully open minded and encouraging of creative ideas. Their confidence to go for a bold colour palette and love for the dramatic meant that their flowers really stood out and complimented their wedding day theme beautifully. See below for my hints and tips on creating wedding flowers for a themed wedding.

  • Avoid the obvious and do your research. Exploring all avenues of your theme including other interpretations of it such as art or music can inspire a more sophisticated approach to a themed wedding rather than for example copying the styling from a film or someone else’s wedding.
  • Make a statement. Choose one element that will be your wow factor floral piece, perhaps not your bouquet as the bride should be the wow factor but a dramatic floral piece that acts as a focal point at your reception. Perhaps a top table piece or something to mark an entrance or doorway. This not only makes a great visual impact but it gives something for your guests to admire and to remember for years to come.
  • Floral Design is not just flowers. There are so many other things that can be incorporated in with your flowers to reflect a theme, both natural and un-natural materials. That might be furry dice in your bouquet or breeze blocks for your centrepieces, anything is possible and so when meeting with your florist have this mind and don’t be afraid to suggest alternative materials, objects or containers if they will enhance your wedding day theme.

Real Weddings: A Rustic Wedding in the Forest for Sarah + Doug http://www.loveluxeblog.com/real-weddings-a-rustic-wedding-in-the-forest-for-sarah-doug/ http://www.loveluxeblog.com/real-weddings-a-rustic-wedding-in-the-forest-for-sarah-doug/#comments Fri, 08 Nov 2013 13:00:18 +0000 Rosie (admin) http://www.loveluxeblog.com/?p=9318

Sarah and Doug had a beautiful wedding in the great outdoors which was expertly photographed by Melissa at Happy Confetti Photography. I'm a big fan of their liberal use of festoon string lights, hanging of picture frames on a wizened old tree and pretty flowers in jam jars.

Even though this wedding didn’t happen in the winter (probably most brides wouldn’t want an outdoor ceremony in the forest with frostbite!) something about all the trees, the wood and the rugged mountains makes me think of chilly wintery goodness.

I’ve been married for almost 19 years and even after all this time I still enjoy turning the pages of our beautiful wedding album which serves as a wonderful reminder of such a perfect and very special day.  Finding the right photographer to capture one of the most important days of your lives is a crucial part of your wedding planning and one which you should take time to carefully consider.

 

choosing a wedding photographer

There are so many wedding photographers available with several different styles of photography and it may seem like quite a daunting task trying to decide which one would be right for you. So here are a few pointers to help you get started.

 

Choose a photographer you like, not just their photography style but their personality too. You will be spending quite a bit of time on this very important day with your photographer in close proximity. If you don’t feel comfortable and at ease with them when you meet with them chances are when you’re feeling anxious on your wedding day, you’re likely to have difficulty warming to them.

 

choosing a wedding photographer

Do your homework and take time to choose wisely. A few questions you might like to ask photographers BEFORE you book them:

  • What is your style of photography? – traditional, reportage or journalistic, artistic, colour, black and white…
  • Are you a full time photographer and how long have you been shooting weddings?
  • Will you be the actual photographer to shoot our wedding?
  • Will you have an assistant/second shooter on the day and if so can we meet him/her?

  • What is included in your rate/package price?
  • What time will you arrive on the day and how long will you stay for?
  • Is my wedding the only wedding/event you will be shooting on the day?
  • How long will it take to get my proofs?
  • What kind of post-production improvements do you make to images?

Once you’ve chosen your wedding photographer here are a few ways to ensure you get the most from your booking:

  • Consider having a pre-wedding or engagement shoot. Lots of wedding photographers are offering these now as part of their package. It’s a great way to get used to being in front of the camera, a chance for your photographer to understand what suits you, what your comfortable with and what you’re not.
  • Find out from your photographer how much and what type of pre-wedding contact and communication they are willing to have with you.Talking, emailing, texting, using Pinterest to share ideas and photos you’ve seen and liked (or not liked) during your wedding planning, may all help you to develop a good rapport with your photographer.
  • If possible try to arrange a visit to your wedding venue with the photographer to discuss the photos that you and they have in mind. Try to seek out ‘must have’ picture locations and wet weather alternatives for planned outdoor shots – much easier to do this in advance without the pressure you may be feeling on the day.
  • Plan time  within your wedding day for those special shots of you as a couple. I advise my clients to do this away from their guests and it serves as a lovely time to reflect on the day so far and to enjoy the moment.

In writing this post I asked wedding and lifestyle photographer Alix Marina-Chouhan from Lumiere Photography for a few words of advice for wedding couples and she said,

Don’t worry about getting your dress slightly dirty or taking off your shoes, enjoy the day….Wallow in it, live it fully, totally, wear your emotions on your sleeves, show your heart.

 

I couldn’t have put it better myself!

Until next time….

Fright This Way! Devilish Halloween Party Ideas http://www.loveluxeblog.com/fright-this-way-devilish-halloween-party-ideas/ http://www.loveluxeblog.com/fright-this-way-devilish-halloween-party-ideas/#comments Wed, 30 Oct 2013 14:30:49 +0000 Heidi Bowman http://www.loveluxeblog.com/?p=20162

I love Autumn it's my favourite season. The colours are stunning - it's as if Mother nature is showing off what she can really do at this time of year. It feels quite magical to me and as October progresses and the night's become darker I still get a buzz out of planning for Halloween.

I love Autumn it’s my favourite season. The colours are stunning – it’s as if Mother nature is showing off what she can really do at this time of year. It feels quite magical to me and as October progresses and the night’s become darker I still get a buzz out of planning for Halloween.

 

 

Better Homes _ Gardens

 

Children love the magic of Hallowe’en too with tales of witches and ghostly goings-on so if you’re planning to host your own gruesome gathering here are a few ideas to help get you started…

 

 

 Better Homes _ Gardens

 

Firstly there has to be a costume! Witches and wizards, ghosts and ghouls, pumpkins and spiders – there are lots of scary options to choose from for your Halloween costume. Lots of shops now sell pretty reasonably priced costumes for kids and adults alike but you could always try a homemade costume instead. I still love the holes-cut-out-of-a-sheet type of ghost costume but not so practical for eating or playing games!

 

Babble.com

 

Instead try Ripping up some old clothes, add talc or baby powder to the hair, darken around the eyes with grey eyeshadow and you’re a zombie!  Another cheap alternative is to buy a roll of fabric bandages unravel the roll and soak in tea to give it an ancient appearance. When it’s dry, wrap the bandage around the body to make your Mummy costume or cut into strips and sew at different angles across a plain t-shirt and leggings.

 

 

Polkadotchair

 

Once you’ve sorted costumes it’s time to fill your haunted house with spooky decorations to delight your guests. Pumpkins are an obvious place to start – carve some scary faces into a row of pumpkins to light up your front steps wall or garden. The best thing about a party at this time of year is that it gets dark fairly early so even for younger guests pumpkins will look fabulous lit up as they arrive.

 

 

Haunted House Pumpkin (HJBowman at Giddy Girls World)

 

If you’re going all out for a ghoulish entrance using glow sticks is a brilliant trick for a super spooky appearance. Carefully break a glow stick and  tip the contents along the edge of  step and let the goo run down each one – the contents will glow like ghostly ectoplasm! (well…that’s the theory! I’ll let you know how well this works at the end of October!)

 

 

Babble.com

 

Hang bats and  spiders from every corner, add sinister black crows and throw fake cobwebs around. There are some brilliant DIY projects online – like this one from HGTV for making spiderwebs from binbags (our Americans friends really have this Halloween thing wrapped up!)

 

 

Binbag Spiderwebs at HGTV

 

..or how about some fabulous ideas from this side of the pond courtesy of  the Red Ted Art blog?  Maggy Woodley has collated  50 Halloween Crafts _ Ideas which covers everything from bubbling brews and pompom pumpkins to ghost lollipops and brains-in-a-jar!!

 

 

 crows, pumpkins and witches at Good Housekeeping

 

 

Bat filled front door at Country Living.com

 

Hang skeletons in front of your windows or cut out spooky shapes like a witch in black card and stick them to the inside of the window - the light from the room will make scary shadows for anyone looking in.

 

 

Better Homes _ Gardens

 

Last year we found some very inexpensive battery operated tealights with an orange glow that we put along our windowsills and cut out our own haunted house in black card – it gave a brilliant effect.

 

Once your decorations and costumes are sorted, it’s time for some frightful fun with your food! There are some amazing recipes and ideas – one in particular for ‘witches fingers’ I couldn’t even bring myself to add to the post, they were so horrific!! (perfect for an adult party but think they would scare the wits out of the kids!) So here are some slightly more child-friendly ideas for your halloween feast

 

 

 Meringue Bones at  Martha Stewart

 

 

 Witches Hat Cakes at babble.com

 

 

 Ginger-dead Skeletons at Oh So Yummy

 

 

 Meringue Ghosts at SkinnyTaste.com

 

 

Oozing Toffee Apples at Woman’s Day.com

 

 

Vampire Blood Soup in test tubes with ghost sandwiches at Food network

 

 

 Mummy pizzas at Parents Magazine.com

 

For some slightly healthier options try ghost bananas and pumpkin satsumas or clementines!

 

 

 Freaky fruit at myeasyrecipes.net

 

 

 Pumpkin mandarins at Haworth Handmade

 

If you’re anything like me, then there is nothing more terrifying than spiders! However , I could just about cope with these spidery drinking straws and I added the plastic spiders to those jellies myself for some fun desserts last year…and they went down a treat!

 

 

Spider Jellies (HJBowman at Giddy Girls World)

 

 

 Spider straws at Lia Griffith

 

After all of that ghoulish grub, it’s time for some games!

 

Mystery Bowls

 

Cover some bowls or boxes with black fabric but leave enough room for small hands to feel around inside and guess what’s inside. Fill your bowls with cooked spaghetti or noodles, peeled grapes or tomatoes, hotdog sausages..anything squishy or slimy to the touch will have your guests squealing!

 

 

Mystery Bowls from Parents Magazine

Pin the spider on the web

 

 

Spider game at HGTV

Just like the Pin the Tail on the Donkey game but use a large web and spider instead! Put the web up on your wall, blindfold each child in turn and let them stick a cardboard cut-out or plastic spider to the web. Closest one to the middle wins!

 

You could also include apple bobbing and a Halloween treasure hunt for skeleton bones! (Find more Halloween party ideas here at Netmums)

 

If you’re sending your party guests home with a treat (or a trick!) , you’ll need a suitably scary goodie bag.bUse orange striped paper bags and seal with a halloween sticker

 

 Striped bags from Little Cherub Designs

 

Another homemade option is to use latex gloves for a horribly gruesome swag bag! Fill with gooey worms, skeleton skull sweets, halloween badges, gold coins and spider rings and tie with a ribbon or string

 

 

Spooky badges at Evajeanie

If you’re stuck for time and ideas, there are great pre-filled halloween party bags available too

 

Fun filled party bags at Edamay

 

Happy Halloween!

Ahh autumn is upon us - and usually the time of year when wedding season starts to slow down a little for most wedding suppliers. But for couples who do choose to tie the knot in September and October, the rusty, earthy colours of autumn leaves and last embers of the summer sun with glorious evening light can be an amazing combination for a beautiful wedding celebration like Britney and Chris had in Texas...

Jennifer and CJ from The Nichols, who photographed the day, fill us in on the day:

 

“There’s a reason why October is usually our biggest month for weddings, the weather is almost always phenomenal! And that was no exception for Chris and Britney’s wedding day. This sweet couple tied the knot under sunny skies on the beautiful grounds of The Southwest School of Art and Craft. Elizabeth Lewis with The Nouveau Romantics brought this historic site to life with her lush floral design, and Michael with The Flashdance kept the party going ’til the end. It was a picture-perfect day, all around. Congrats Britney + Chris!!”
