The night before the big day

The night before the big day, the last rush to pull everything together. Some photos from the setting up at the hall with everyone working hard. Paper lanterns flying everywhere and the year's collected beautiful bits and pieces carefully displayed in mini installations transforming the hall. The late night pizza was definitely welcome after this evening! 

The table flowers, hydrangea donated by our generous neighbours.

The 'Before' Shot

Teapot arrangements for the windowsills, amazing what a piece of lace ribbon can do to transform some otherwise drab curtains. 

The Cake

I love these little knitted mice Lara found, personalised with stitched initials for the cake toppers. It's inspired me; maybe I could create creatures and accessories for events such as cake toppers and props? Well it's got me thinking anyway...

The fireplace was an ideal place to create a backdrop for the cake table and the mantel piece looked beautiful with the vintage glass and china pieces and pearly fairy lights.

Dan and best-men working hard putting up the endless bunting, fairy lights and lanterns.

The Hall ready and set. No more planning or making left todo.
