Style Saturday - How to decorate for a party, stylishly!

Party On

Why doesn't love a party?! This party themed design mood board has everything you need to make your house perfect for a stylish party at home! Match your decorations to your tableware for a professional finish and use colour sparingly but be bold! Confetti across the table is an easy way to add colour without having to have lots of table decoration, the lights really give a party feel and perfect for when it gets later in the evening. 

Do you have any party decorating tips? I would love to hear about them, please let me know in the comments section below

Total Shop Review - Etsy School

Hello everyone,

Thought I would share with you all today what I have been up to in my shop. I am taking part in the Dorset Team's Etsy School Module. It is a really intensive month of live chats discussions and the Dorset Etsy Team work together to help one another improve their shops. There is a different theme each week and it covers everything from SEO to photography, it is great! I am hoping to improve my shop photography in particular and that is the topic for tonights live chat so I will be there with my notepad jotting down ideas and hopefully (watch this space!) will start making some big improvements to my shop photographs.

Hope you are all having a fantastic week so far, the sun is shining here!

Last week in photographs featuring valentines day flowers, the best soap ever, banana cake and of course tea!

Hello everyone,

Hope you are all having a great week so far. I thought today I would share with you all my week last week in photographs. My week was filled with….. birthday celebrations, bowling, a trip to the sea life centre (you are never too old!), beautiful flowers, banana cake, what a fantastic week!

My beautiful beautiful flowers, aren't they stunning!? Full of some of my favourite flowers (and yes there are left over Christmas chocolates just below!)

This instantly made the week so much more fun. Soap that smells like strawberry laces?! Best thing ever!

We ate lots of really yummy cake to celebrate my sister's birthday.

We cooked up a storm in the kitchen! 

….. and of course drank lots of tea!

Item of the week - Turquoise long tassel keyring/ keychain by The Dorothy Days

Hello everyone,

My item of the week this week is this long tassel turquoise keyring. I make the key rings in different colours but this beautiful turquoise blue has to be one of my favourites. It can be used either as a keyring or as a bag charm and makes a fantastic house warming or congratulations gift for someone who has just passed their driving test.
