There was absolutely no way we couldn’t have shared today’s bridal shoot with you – it’s so damn pretty! So, the next thing you are probably going to ask yourself is ‘how can I get this look for myself?’. Well, don’t worry as wedding planners, Laura and Kym are sharing the how’s and why’s of throwing a bridal shower so you can get the look for yourself.
Now Christmas is over we are already looking forward to the New Years eve celebrations. To make sure you celebrate in style we have a tutorial that will take your party poppers to a whole new level? What’s great about this tutorial is that if you don’t get round to popping them on New Years eve, then you can keep them for your next celebration, birthdays, anniversaries and engagements. These party poppers will soon be one of your favourite ways to pop confetti on any occasion and you don’t just have to fill them with confetti. If you wanted to use them at a wedding this would be great favors, filled with small gifts or sweets.
You Will Need:
White Card stock | Glittered Card Stock | Scissors | Double Sided Tape | Glue Gun | Gold Ribbon | Gold Crepe Paper | Confetti | Vinyl or stick on letters |
Using your white card stock, cut a rectangle 18 ½ cm x 13 ½ cm long
Using your Glittered card cut a fan shape measuring roughly 18 cm x 9 cm long
Cut a piece of crepe paper 18 ½ cm x 10 Cm long and tape along the bottom of the rectangular card stock.
Now roll your white card stock into a cylindrical shape, ensuring the crepe paper is on the inside and secure along the seam with double sided tape.
Cinch the crepe paper closed with gold ribbon.
Fold the fan shaped template into a cone shape and secure with a hot glue gun. (more…)
If you’ve been reading Bespoke Bride since August you would have seen the beautiful Confetti Bucket DIY in collab with Shropshire Petals! I absolutely adored making that ice bucket and loved the way it turned out so much that I wanted to try and recreate one with a Christmas spin! An ice bucket that would be the perfect centre piece for any table and really show off the glitz and glam of Christmas! This year, in our house, the festive theme is metallics so I really wanted my ice bucket to match and include lots of golds, coppers and bronze shades! Let’s get going shall we?
YOU WILL NEED:
Metallic confetti (I went for gold stars) // Crystal type confetti // Glitter // Tinsel // 1 large bucket // 1 smaller bucket (it needs to fit inside the large bucket but also be big enough to hold a bottle) // stones //
Take your large bucket and fill it with 2-3 inches of water then pop in the freezer and allow to freeze.
Next, grab the smaller bucket and place inside the larger one then weigh it down with stones to ensure it doesn’t float when we add in the extra water!
Add another 2 inches of water to the bucket next and sprinkle in some glitter, then allow to freeze.
Of all the things I love about Christmas, I think the thing I love the most is the excuse to indulge in all sorts of naughty sweet treats. I don’t think of myself as having a much of a sweet tooth, I’m definitely a savory kind of gal but once a year I like to treat myself to the odd chocolate or two, or three, or four! OK – a whole box!!! This year we wanted to make our own Christmas candy so inspired by Katherine Sabbath’s Unicorn chocolate, we made Christmas Candy Bark and it turned out to be soooooo cute!!
You Will Need:
1 Bag of White Candy Melts | 1 Bag of Pink Candy Melts | 1/2 Bag of Green Candy Melts | Selection of colorful sprinkles and edible confetti to decorate | Large baking tray | Baking Paper | Spatula | BBQ Skewer | Spoon |
First line your baking tray with baking paper.
Melt the white candy melts either in a microwave or on the hob. If using the microwave heat for 30 second intervals stirring each time until the chocolate has completely melted and become smooth.
Now using the same method melt down your pink and green melts in separate bowls.
Pour the white candy melt mixture onto your baking tray. At this point you might find some of your mixtures are beginning to thicken but don’t worry just simply reheat the candy to make it smooth again.
