we heart feb 2010

February the month of love has come and gone, and there were SO many things to love this month. Like this stunning dress photographed by Carl Bengtsson. We found a couple of excellent etsy sellers, Fabuluster with their custom fingerprint rings and Percy Handmade from Canberra with the most gorgeous accessories and clutches. And of course this month did revolve around a lot of high tea, pic from Country Living.

Next month... well.. I'm getting married! So we might be a bit light on the posts but hope to bring you some shots of the wedding soon.

a mad hatter tea party

I just love the idea of a mad hatters tea party. Go crazy with colour and decorate your tables with wacky and wonderful displays of mismatched crockery.
Let yummy cupcakes speak for themselves! Eat me cupcakes by Hello Naomi. Simple paper lanterns in a rainbow of colours look gorgeous suspended from the ceiling of this marquet. Pic from New England Sound. Drink up with little signs inspired by Lewis Carroll's story, from a beautiful real Alice in Wonderland wedding via Wedding Cabaret. Crazy crockery: flamingo plate from Not on the High Street. Stack cups for a fabulous table centerpiece via Project Weddings or add one of Esther Coombs amazing ceramic creations.

DIY project: cupcake toppers

Pretty up your party and add some cute little cupcake toppers to your DIY to do list. As this is for our Alice in Wonderland wedding, we're going to use our FREE flamingo template (available here) but you could use any design you like or even just pretty paper.

You will need:
Card paper
Circle punches
Glue and double sided sticky tape
Toothpicks or craftpicks

DIY project:
Step 1. Using a 2" paper craft punch cut out circles of coloured card to be the background of your toppers. Craft punches come in lots of different designs, we have used a plain circle but you could also use a more decorative edged circle punch.

Step 2: Print off your flamingo template and using a 1.5" circle punch, cut out each design.

Step 3: Stick the flamingo designs to the center of the coloured card with glue or double sided sticky tape.

Step 4: Turn over and glue your toothpick, or even better craftpicks, to the back of the circle. Repeat the process if you like for double sided toppers or just leave as is! Easy!

Oh... Step 5.... eat cupcake :)
