I have a big birthday coming up, it’s not for a while, but we are starting to plan the party that will go with this occasion. I turn 40 in February, and rather than run away and hide, like I would like to, we’ve decided to hold a party to celebrate. It will be our chance to show Pen Y Llechwedd off in a whole new way.
I’ve decided on a garden party, a Midsummer Nights Dream theme, while I am not entire sure on all the details, I do know that I would like the party to be help outside, in the garden, with lots of fairy lights, candles and little tables with flowers. I have been googling flower arrangements and what flowers will be available at that time, and may have spent more than a few hours on Pinterest getting all excited. Here is a little of the inspiration we are looking at….
The lighting in this photo, is my inspiration. The table setting too formal, obviously for a wedding.
These are my colours, I love the softness of pastel colours, and tiffany blue is my all time favourite.
The simplicity of this is perfect! Something I could do myself. We have a box of old jars we used for similar arrangements for our wedding, it would be lovely to put them to use again.
How cool is this! Using a pineapple for a vase, what a great idea!
White flowers are my favourite, this arrangement is far too complicated for me to attempt though.
Combine all my favourite things.
