Usually I take the day off from a blog post on Saturday, but whilst sitting here working I came across this beautiful piece of inspiration that I couldn’t help but share with you.
I particularly love the month of May and all the flowers that bloom in our gardens and hedgerows. I especially love fruit tree blossom, and with my little apple tree just starting to blossom this week, and my crab apple tree not far behind, this heavenly shoot reminded me of all those reasons I love May so much.
What a lovely idea this is – pressing delicate spring blossom into the icing of your wedding cake. I wonder whether blossom is edible? I imagine that fruit tree blossom should be edible – any of my flower businesses know the answer?
This cake is particularly pretty with its powder blue icing and pink blossom, although I’m not so keen on the rabbit topper – although if you could find a cute pair of rabbit figurines I think it would make for a lovely spring or Easter wedding cake.
It is lovely to be able to share some inspiration from one of the businesses listed on The Natural Wedding Company directory this afternoon. This beautiful spring arrangement of white tulips and branches of blossom was put together by the lovely Green and Gorgeous, and I think just captures this time of year.
If I was getting married now, I would have jugs of these white tulips and blossom everywhere – such a simple combination but artfully arranged by Green and Gorgeous – and all seasonal and English grown, can you really get any better than that?
This gorgeous cloud of vintage pink flowers brings out my inner girlieness. It is so pretty and feminine, and oh so romantic – it melts that feminist side of me that and takes me back to my childhood. I find some of the nicest things that I love the most are those that remind me of my childhood, its funny how that is.
You can find this pretty pink floral crown at WhichGoose, which if you haven’t yet checked out the creations by this talented lady you should go and drool over them all now.
Once again, I’ve been saved by one of the many incredible people I’ve met through planning my wedding – near on a meltdown last night (fretting about the huge task in hand to get ready for Saturday and yet insanely tired) I received some lovely messages from Mark Tattersall via Twitter.
