Well this post is a little mash up of loveliness! Party/Wedding reception ideas; peaches, cream and hessian (burlap) is the theme and this is my little table. The DIY idea here is for adding calligraphy onto paper doilies and using clear plates because it is very cute. ^_^
All of these photos are a peek into my mood board notebook as I knew I was creating this project in collaboration with Before the Big Day Blog. A new column which will be added here and over on BTBD!
The recipe for the peach cheesecake is from Moje wypieki and big thank you to my friend Marta and her culinary skills.
The blackboard peg tutorial is very very simple and will be shared with you soon as different variations. This is just a peek into my ideas notebook where I store snippets of lace, fabrics, tapes and inspiring images.
Ive been slightly obsessed with the peaches and cream colour scheme for quite some time now and Im always inspired by Leslie of A Creative Mint and her beautiful colourful 'Color Me Pretty' column through Decor8 blog, when Georgia from BTBD Blog contacted me about a collaboration I jumped at the chance to work on DIY projects as I love the creative mood board and planning process!
I had so much fun collecting and raiding through my supplies to work on what I would be creating and how I would style the table. I was bursting to use the peach sequins and ecru hand crochet doily ^_^
My collection of loveliness. I now have that key of ribbons on there permanently! It's the key for the cupboard that hides our electricity fuse thing (Im so good with technical terms!)
The peaches and cream crepe paper was just the perfect set of colours and the thing that set me off completely with this colour scheme is my lovely vase of flowers there from Bloom UK.
I also fell in love with these peach stripy straws from Pi pii
The calligraphy doily idea was originally seen on Martha Stewart (where else?!)
Jones Design have a post here on how to create fake calligraphy
