DIY PINK GIN WEDDING FAVOURS WITH FREE PRINTABLE TAGS

If you know me well, you’ll know that when it comes to drinking alcohol I’m pretty dam fussy, as in, I don’t like wine, champagne and I’ll drink spirits as long as you disguise the taste of them with mixers haha However…Over the Christmas holidays I had a breakthrough and tried pink gin! Granted, I had it with lemonade and not soda (sorry gin drinkers!) but I absolutely loved it! And don’t get me started on how pretty it is, I mean, it’s a beautiful shade of pastel pink!

Then this got me thinking, wouldn’t pink gin just make the prettiest wedding favours?! Especially made up all cute in mini bottles, plus guests would surely love to have gin freebies right?! Here’s how to make your own:

YOU WILL NEED:

Pink Gin (we used Gordon’s) // Mini glass bottles (preferably with screw top lids) // Pink spray paint (We used Berry Pink from Rustoleum) // Paper straws (we went for gold) // Gold ribbon // Free printable ‘chin chin’ tags // Hole punch //

STEP 1:

Print off the free printable tags (which you can download here) and cut them out ready, then using your hole punch make small holes in the top of each of the tags so that they can easily thread through your ribbon.

COLOURFUL RAINBOW IDEAS THAT ARE SUITABLE FOR ANY WEDDING VENUE

With so much nude and ivory on the wedding scene Hayley and Lorna of Starry Eyed events wanted to show brides how the subtle use of colour in a wedding dress can not only be exciting but often look even better against individual skin tones, rather than harsh whites and ivories.

Shot at Budworth Hall, a beautiful town hall in Ongar, these gals proved colour really can look good anywhere, taking their creativity to a whole other level with the decorations and creating the most epic celebratory rainbow backdrop with so much colour and even more impressive, lights!

SRI LANKA TRAVEL GUIDE: FROM ELLA TO UDAWALAWE, UNAWATUNA, BENTOTA & COLOMBO

By now I hope you’ve been able to check out part 1 of my Sri Lanka travel guide. Today I am going to pick up where we left off in Ella, which had to have been on of my favourite places on the whole trip and from the photos, I think you will see why?

Once we arrived in Ella, we jumped in a tuk tuk, huge suitcases and all and headed straight to our hotel. Tuk tuks are by far one of the fastest ways of getting around anywhere in Sri Lanka, but there are some things you should know.

First, try to get tuk tuks that are on meters, these are a lot cheaper and are easily found in big cities like Colombo but small villages & towns not so. Second, Tuks tuks should cost anywhere between 50 – 90 rupees for every 5 minutes of the journey. So before you get in any tuk tuk first ask how long it will take to get there and how much using the above as a cost guide. And finally, don’t be afraid to haggle!! We weren’t brave enough to try this until the end of our trip and soon learnt we could have saved ourselves a lot of money.
