After the wedding I found I had many little bits and bobs that I wanted to keep as memories but just putting them in a box at the bottom of a cupboard or in the loft seemed a waste. I got my craft brain on and decided to make two keepsake frames for our bedroom.
Once you have made this, you will probably never make another flavour cheesecake again. A winner at all parties and BBQs- its delicious! I actually made this for a party and my husband threatened to eat a slice if I didn’t make him a mini version, so just be warned you may need to make more than you think!
Every year, all over the country, people get together for a coffee morning in aid of Macmillan cancer support. We are members of a local farmer club and in aid of the charity a coffee morning was thrown at a local farm. I don’t think we will be braking any stereotypes any time soon – as boy can farmers wives bake!
As well as the signs I made several things for the tipi including- milk churn displays, confetti bucket, tipi decoration inside, table plans and a guest book.
We had our wedding at the farm so it seemed only fitting to do a lot of the decoration ourself. From the table plan, to flower decorations, signs and the Tipi decoration, it was all hands on deck. As we planned well in advance I used the summer to pull things together and then friends and family to help with the decoration in the run up to the wedding.
A great classic one bowl recipe that you can chuck a variety of ingredients in and they still taste great. Especially yummy if you have them warm straight from the oven when you come in from the cold weather outside.
Everyone knows the foot wear of choice for a farmer is the classic green welly! That being said there are so many makes, versions and colours available now a days.
During the summer we both wear boots but for the most part of the year in Britain we wear wellies so I thought I would share our preference.
The reception was held back at the farm in one of the fields. We had an area set up for parking and camping and then mowed a walk way across the field to the tipi.
On the 16th September- I officially became a farmer’s wife.
We were getting married in my local village before heading back to a farm field for a DIY rustic style wedding in a Tipi. We had organised everything ourselves and tried to do as much as possible to save some money as well as making everything more personal to us. The farm had had a tidy up and Tom has put more effort into mowing the field than I have ever seen him put into anything else. With everything ready to go the Tipi went up on the Wednesday, giving us 3 days to decorate away. Myself, Tom and lots of family and friends help to decorate the Tipi and get everything ready. It was hard work but I really enjoyed adding those little touches that were personal to use.
