This is such a beautiful set up by Salt Harbor Designs. But make sure you head over to M&G to have a look at the amazing baby shower Mary did, it has some of the most incredible floral arrangements I have seen in a very long time!
I'm all jet lagged. I hate it. Its 4am and I have been awake for a couple of hours now dreaming about all the wonderful things I could have if money grew on trees. I've been dreaming about the direction I want to take the design on our home. We have some money aside that people gave us as gifts for our wedding and we have decided that we are going to put it towards and new dining room setting. After much research on my behalf, going from Eames Eiffel bases with a vintage table, to stock standard IKEA settings, Jarrod and I have finally agreed on a setting style that will reflect who we are.Different coloured Thornet Bentwood chairs with arm chairs at either end of a worn oak table. And I feel that it is the perfect inspiration for the future design development of our home.first image from here other images from here
What a trip! I cant wait to post some of the photos. But that can wait. Right now I have more exciting news...Very very soon (any day now) we will start posting on Mary&Gabrielle pictures from Jarrod and my wedding. But because there are so many, it will probably have to be done in a series starting with us getting ready and so on. Also, more exciting news, 100 Layer Cake will be posting about the wedding on their blog too (one of my very favourite for inspiration), so stay tuned to their blog also! And if you don't already know, the Wedding Style Guide's newest issue is out! It is a very surreal feeling seeing yourself in a magazine... strange.
I couldnt resist but leave you with one last amazing table setting before I jump on a plane today to Europe. We are ending our trip in Rome and thought this Rustic Italian setup (with a make it yourself Martini bar!) by Sunday Supper would be a perfect way to leave the blog for three long weeks.
Tomorrow Jarrod and I finally begin our honeymoon! First stop London to see my family who couldn't make it to the wedding and to catch up with some of our ex-pat friends, I cant wait to go on my Soho shopping spree! I have been saving for ages to do this! We are in London for 5 days, 2 of which are in the lovely country setting of Sommerset to see my Granny. Then we hop on a train and head to Paris for three romantic nights then we fly down to Nice where we will hire a car, and drive for 1 and a half hours west to Feyance in the picturesque hills of the Provence where we will spend 4 glorious days lying by the pool in the most beautiful house all by ourselves. Got to love having the kindest most generous family friends lending us their holiday house! Then from there we fly to Rome for the last three nights of our trip then head home to reality. Cant wait to lose ourselves in Europe for a while!
See you all soon!
Oh and keep a look out for us in Wedding Style Guide!
The weather was a perfect 36 degrees, maybe a little too hot to be driven to your wedding in a vintage Buick with no air conditioning, but no body seemed to mind while they sipped on pimms cocktails (except for the hydrangeas in my hair).
