Inspiration…

I went to The Princess of Wales conservatory at Kew Gardens back in the summer in search of inspiration for new cake designs. I also have a love of architecture and love the trend for concrete cakes coming over from Australia at the moment. I knew I wanted to bring it all together in a shoot.

My Sister, Sophie (Sophie Lake Photography) suggested a wedding reception shoot with a cake table as a main feature, but to also focus on other key aspects of styling. We wanted to marry together big green leaves, concrete urban style, fun pink and copper, so the concrete jungle theme was born!

The main reason for choosing B Loved Hive as our venue was the amount of natural light. As a warehouse unit offered a perfect urban space for our jungle.

Curious Fair DIY Project… Silver leaf bowl

Curious Fair Silver Leaf Bowl DIY project_0001 DIY Silver Leaf Bowl…

Today the creative duo at Curious Fair have provided us with a really simple but effective DIY project, a silver leaf bowl.

What I love about this is that you can use any sized balloons to create different shapes and also change the spray paint to a colour that suits your wedding colours. You could fill them with fruit, sweets, favours and really adds an autumnal feel to your day.

Here Natalie & Guy gives us step by step instructions on how to make this…

Step 1…

Enjoy an autumnal walk collecting interesting shaped leaves as you go! Make sure they are malleable and not too stiff otherwise they won’t stay in place. Mix PVA glue with a little water to make a ‘papier mache’ style paste.

Step 2…

Blow up your balloon to the size you’d like your bowl. The balloon will act as a mould and your bowl will eventually be the same size as the bottom half of the balloon.
