I think I am developing an unhealthy Twitter habit! I’ve been taking part in Reach Further’s #12dot (12 Days of Twitter) and have learnt all sort of stuff, but now, whatever I do I need to tweet it… Not sure I can write anything that’s any longer than 140 characters but let’s have a go.
Lovely wedding on Friday – very pretty bride, beaming groom and the flowers weren’t bad either. Weather was brilliant too which is remarkable since it’s done nothing but rain since. I know we all pray for good weather but it isn’t the best for the flowers, you get them from the market in tip top shape and then you try to keep them that way….
As usual the Mustard Pot made a lovely venue and the couple had filled the garden with fun things to do – hoopla, 10 pin bowls, and amongst other things limbo. Didn’t hang around to see the bride do that in her frock! And inside they’d collected dozens of pretty china cups and saucers for coffee after dinner which went perfectly with the simple jugs and jars of pretty country flowers
The theme was vintage/country, so lots of seasonal flowers, nothing too stuffy. The pew ends were simple bunches tied with raffia which we lifted with the pedestal and moved down to the pub for the reception. Makes sense to get double the use from your flowers where you can.
Of course there had to be roses, in the bouquet were Avalance and Akito roses with gyp, white lisianthus and freesia, and variegated pittisorpum and the bridesmaids’ posies were simple but with blues and violets to match their dresses.
And after all that loveliness I had to find a way to get 19 half barrels from Knottingley to Leeds. Man with Van was great, but we still had to stuff 3 of them into my car, talk about the sublime to the ridiculous. But they got there and they look good as well. I took a photo when they arrived, oozing the smell of booze over the garden but I failed to take one when I’d done. I suspect I’d seen too much of them by then.
Quite glad of the rain today really – at least I can’t dig anything or plant anything, hooray I get to stay inside. A little light plant ordering is on the cards I think. Oh careful the sun’s coming out….
and if you want to know where all the wittering and twittering is find me @MaggyAnne, see you there maybe?
