Having two under two means we need to keep busy- just because it’s raining doesn’t mean we can’t bring the farm indoors.
For Christmas my brother bought me a Emma Bridgewater factory experience. We have so much ‘stuff’ I love getting an experience or a chance to make memories and this was right up my street!
I have two under two- which means I have 7,568 pieces of artwork that turn up daily. Where does it all go- on the fridge- and then every time you open the fridge door it all ends up on the floor! So I have taken action!
I have given most the details on the big day including lots of detail on many of the things I made. This final post covers the finishing touches from the table plan and table decorations to the gifts.
When Henry was born my aunty bought me a hand and foot casting kit. It was one of the best presents I received as it meant I could capture a memory of his tiny hands and feet in the comfort of our own home. Those first couple of weeks where a time when leaving the house just seemed impossible so it was a fabulous activity to keep my mind working- between sleep deprivation and pure house chaos.
Every wedding I have been to has had a paper guest book, and I always think its such a shame when there are empty pages and only half the book gets filled. As we weren’t having a big wedding I decided to do something different and made a wooden guest book that could be displayed afterwards.
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.
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.
