Wedding Table Decor for Hire

I'd love to share some of my wedding table decor items with you for unique place settings that your guests will admire.   I am hiring out my large selection of antique amber and brown glass bottles for anyone who is interested.  I have over 100 bottles and jars of varying sizes, textures and tones.

They would suit a rustic or vintage style New Zealand wedding and look great set against white tables or table cloths.  Add a pop of colour with some singular blooms or foliage.  

I also paired my white ruffle edged dinnerware with hand made linen napkins.  I can also hire out these napkins as well.   Email me if you are interested in either.

 

 

 

Humble Hilo ethical products

I was lucky to have four gorgeous flowergirls as part of my recent wedding with one of those girls being my little daughter Frankie.  I had an exact image in my head as to what I wanted them to wear - simple, pretty dresses without the fru fru and simple, strappy sandals suitable for summer.  Kind of like a roman sandal but not so heavy.  Just focusing on the sandals for a minute - do you think I could find what I wanted in New Zealand?!  No, of course not.  I scoured the web for days, trawling through Pinterest and Instagram before finally coming across these little guys.   They were exactly what I was after!   And, even better,  a portion of each purchase goes back to the women in Guatamala who hand make them.  Humble Hilo is their name, they work on behalf of the humanitarian organization World Link Partners to provide support by creating job opportunities and giving back portion of all its profits to three programs that will make a sustainable difference in the lives of Guatemalans in great need.

I went and got married!

After an 18 month engagement I am thrilled to now be a married lady!   On Saturday we had the most amazing day of celebration with friends and family, everything went well and the weather was fantastic.   What an amazing venue we had at Old Forest School in the beautiful Bay of Plenty.   Our stunning bridal party and pretty little flower girls did the best job ever of looking after us on our special day!
