Questions, questions, questions…

Before you’ve even started showing off your ring the questions will come flooding in… ‘Have you set a date?’…’Am I invited?’…’How did he propose?’…Everyone around you will be super excited so get ready for your engagement to be the topic of conversation!

If you don’t want to give too much away, or you haven’t made any decisions yet, come up with a blanket statement to use whenever someone comes pestering. Something like “We’re looking at having a Autumn wedding but haven’t worked out the finer details yet” or “We’re just so excited being engaged right now”. They should get the hint!

At this point, hold off inviting anyone or making them part of your wedding party. You can’t really un-ask someone to be your bridesmaid, so really take the time to think about it.

‘Tis the season to get merry…

This year I’m off to the in-laws for Christmas day; but before then I’m hosting pre-xmas drinks at mine with friends, then afterwards my family will be coming to mine for Boxing Day. I’m pretty sure you will have to roll me out of my house when this festive period is done! lol!

So if like me food and drink is a priority and sitting around a table eating, drinking, laughing and playing games is up your street, then todays post will offer some inspiration for some intimate festive dinner party ideas.

A few weeks ago I invited Noeleen from The Basement Florist, Louisa from street food catering Tuck In London and my lovely friend Binky from Binky Nixon Photography over for an intimate dinner party. The theme was festive and seasonal… delicious seasonal food surrounded by the prettiest seasonal flowers.

The girls brought round their bits whilst I sorting out my house for the gathering. For me a tidy house, a cool sound track, some colourful tasting platters, some beautiful flowers and candle light is all you need …
