A wonderful wedding!
Today I am very privileged to be attending my friends wedding at the very beautiful Stubton Hall in Newark. I have heard such lovely things about the venue and am very excited to visit. Not heard of it? Check out the website http://www.stubtonhall.co.uk/ My husband is particularly excited as he has the job of taking their photographs which I just know are going to be fantastic!...
Here are just a few things that have caught my eye that I think would be lovely to wear this summer…
So are you going to be celebrating Shorve Tuesday tomorrow? If so what kind of pancakes tickle your fancy? Are you a savoury or a sweet pancake muncher? Lemon, syrup, cheese, fruit, squirty cream… ? My favourite is to have a couple of savouries first with cheese, chilli powder and basil… then I’ll have a couple of sweet with fruit, preferably raspberries and blueberries...

Winters Morning Walk
My husband and I had a lovely walk today through the fog in Bottesford. It was so good to get some fresh air and take a stroll through a nice village.

I love a good party and it is so lovely to be able to give something to your guests as a little gesture to say thank you so much for making this a fantastic party. Here are some of my favourite party favour ideas taken from Pinterest…
Don’t you just love it!! Cake is brilliant for any occasion…. birthday cake, wedding cake, engagement cake, cake for cake sake, pudding on a Wednesday to celebrate mid-week, cake at the weekend just because you can. Seriously….. cake is amazing!! I have just spent the last 10 minutes mixing together a batch of chocolate brownies and I’ve washed up and am now relaxing...
AKA lots of gorgeous nibbley food! What’s not to love?! Well apart from the odd things like octopus… but each to their own hey. Tapas is such a good idea for a night in with the girls, a night out a friend, partner, the whole family, evening nibbles in the garden during supper, by the fireside in winter…. and the list goes on. I went to Escabeche in Nottingham and completely...
There is just something about a field of poppies blowing in the breeze, all brightly coloured and standing proud. I always thought it would be a brilliant idea to get married in the middle of a poppy field, it would be so pretty and unusual. Although I probably would have been eaten alive from all the bugs in the field!! Not so brilliant! This photo is lovely, the sunshine glowing through the...
Well a jubilee weekend is the perfect time to think about delicious party food… mainly cakes, cupcakes and very British things like pineapple and cheese on sticks and cocktail sausages. Well how about something a little different, perhaps some mexican nibbles like Quesadillas - they can be made with so many different fillings… I have a recipe for chicken & butternut squash with...
