Pastel Perfection

Some Idyllic Days products were used in a recent shoot for You and Your Wedding magazine. The pretty as a picture cake from Little Venice Cake Company works perfectly with our cut glass bonbon dishes filled with sweet treats.

For a completely different look, mix gold filigree detailing and lace accents for a luxurious feel.

Lovely Ladies

Althought it's not the most glamorous part of my job, maintaining a well stocked and clean ladies loo is a must at any wedding. Clients (and I) have discounted venues completely on the basis of toilets, and whilst it's not something that the boys would probably even consider, for the girls it's a great place for a gossip and giggle! 

See my tips for a powder room in this month's issue of Wedding Ideas, and think about providing a little box of goodies to make yours a lovely ladies! xx

Beautiful Brides

Once again, Idyllic Days products have been featured in Brides magazine. This pretty shoot, full of pastel colours highlights a couple of the many different uses for our vintage crockery.

Teacups are used to serve chocolate mousse in and to display a single stem of peony perfection; my favourite flower EVER.

They have 30 places available with tickets at £20 per person. Each ticket includes a one and a half hour demonstration, a raffle ticket for the chance to win some great prizes and a variety of sweet treats and bubbly. Every penny of the ticket price will go to Breast Cancer Care.
