the weekend starts now!

Hello darlings! I’m starting my weekend early today, and am off to GoMA with my lovely mum to see the Spanish Masters for my birthday. I have lots of awesome things in store for you next week, including a guest post from a lover of rustic weddings which I can’t wait to share with you! Have a lovely weekend x x

Retro Carnival favour station {corporate event}

I recently had the pleasure of styling a favour station for Starcom MediaVest, for their annual Starcom-a-palooza (a thank-you and networking event for staff and clients). The lovely folks at Starcom work really hard but they also know how to party – I think I had just as much fun as they did! I designed a retro carnival inspired favour station, filled with lots of gorgeous and yummy take-home treats for guests like creaming soda jelly beans, cotton candy jelly beans, wizz fizz and butterscotch popcorn. As well as fun details like retro striped paper straws. By the end of the night there were no more carnival treats in sight on the table, which is what I love to see! Here are a few shots of the favour station – enjoy! (All printables are by Hermia’s Wishes)

Sunday afternoon musings…

First things first, I am head over heels in love with my new blog design* and am so excited to share it with you all! Isn’t it just gorgeous?

Having a gorgeous blog makes me love my little business even more, and I really love what I do. But as anyone who has ever had their own business will know, it’s no picnic…a whole lot of passion, hard work and determination is needed to not only get a business off the ground but to build it each day. One of my favourite quotes is ‘nothing worth doing is ever easy’ and this is especially true for anyone who has tried to turn their passion into a profitable business! I often have to remind myself of this, and repeat this quote over in my head if I’m having a not so good day. But you know what? It’s all completely worth it when you create something that is truly your own and you are doing what you love. So today I’m giving a virtual high five to everyone out there pursuing their dreams, doing what they love and doing what makes them come alive!
