Hangin' Out

As I'm sure I've told you before that whilst in the midst of planning my own wedding, I am also a bridesmaid for one of my lovely friends who is getting married two weeks before me. Now last night I got an unofficial invite via facebook for her bridal shower. The theme is so cute and I'm using it as an excuse to get a new dress. Oh and of course buy a hat because I couldn't go to a Mad Hatters High Tea without one!

Anyways as part of her present today I ordered one of these from only my favouritest of places etsy!


BTW that's not going to be her last name. Whilst I was there I ordered one for myself!


Our dresses are going to look so pretty on these hangers! I cant wait for them to arrive :)

Chalkboard Speech Bubble Progress!

So this weekend I finally got started on making the chalkboard speech bubbles for our photobooth.


First I bought some mdf from bunnings and then I drew speech bubbles by freehand straight onto the board with whatever texta I could find. It didn't need to be perfect since they'll be painted over anyways.

Oh hai there pink slippers! ^_^


Then I packed the board into my car and ask one of the wonderful gentlemen at work to cut it into shape. They now look like this:

The next step is to sand the edges so they are nice and smooth, then staple string on the back for handles and then finally paint them with chalkboard paint! I'll be making the finishing touches this weekend so stay tuned for the final product!

Paloma's Nest


I just ordered our ringbearers bowl from the Paloma's Nest etsy store. I've custom ordered it to say "my heart will always belong to you 15.10.11" which is one of the things Matt wrote in his proposal letter to me and of course our wedding date.

I just love how simple and pretty they are. It should take 3 to 6 weeks to get to me, I'm excited! :)

Often...

I catch 11:11 on the clock but I cant ever think of anything to wish for.


Life must be that good I dont need to wish for anything :)

Dresses of the miniature kind.

Oh hi there stranger! I've been a little MIA on the blogging front. Mainly because I haven't been really exciting the past week and a bit. I did buy my earrings unfortunately by the time I went to buy them, the gorgeous green teardrop ones weren't available anymore.


I got the above instead also from Max and Chloe. They aren't as pretty as the other ones but they are still similar. I cant wait for them to arrive in the mail!

Now I am on the hunt for flowergirl dresses. I want my two little flowergirls to feel like princesses but I also want their dresses to be practical so they can wear them again. (Ha just like I wanted the BM dresses to be! I dont see any of my BM's wearing those dresses again unless they dye them >.<)

I've actually found a dress in Myer that I really liked but they only had smaller sizes in store. I looked it up on the net and we can order it online but with one of the girls being in between sizes it'd probably be a little hard to decide which one to choose.

The smaller sizes didn't have the ribbon around it and I'm thinking I would change the ribbon to a green one anyways.

I want to get something a little different and a little more casual from the regular flower girl dresses so I've been looking at regular kids clothes stores instead of at formal ones. It's pretty hard at the moment to find pretty dresses coz we're in winter now! I've also found it's a little hard to find two of the same dresses because one flower girl is 7 and in between a size 8 or a 10 and the other girl is 2 and atill a size 1!

I also like this dress but I think it's a bit too casual and I'm not sold on the colours.

I LOVE these skirts

But they would be coming from America which would take a while and are a bit pricey and then you'll need to add postage. I was considering looking in the dance store Bloch to look at their children's tutu's they should be much cheaper.

Shoes, I'm not too fussed on. I was hoping we could pick up some cheap glittery ones from Target or Big W or even Payless Shoes. And I was thinking of getting the girls cute headbands and they should be sorted!

After that we'll just need to get the boys suits sorted and everyone will have outfits organised!
