Vintage Fun for Volunteers!

Happy New Year everyone! We do hope this year brings you peace and happiness even though we currently seem to be wading through rain and mud at every turn! It can’t last, honestly…….. So to cheer us up we thought we’d share a few more photos from the lovely event we were involved in back in the summer with Julia’s House in Corfe Mullen.

Children’s charity Julia’s House   (dedicated to supporting children with life-limiting conditions) wanted to say thank you to their volunteers as part of National Volunteers Week by holding a vintage tea at their hospice at Corfe Mullen.

With more than 100 volunteers supporting the charity – taking on work from fundraising to van driving; working in the Julia’s House shops, providing admin work and giving support at the hospice itself – there’s a huge range and potential for volunteering activity that is vital to the charity.

The vintage tea was an opportunity for employees from Julia’s House to say thank you – serving tea and scones to volunteers and showing them the facilities and work that takes place at the Corfe Mullen hospice.

Follow the link HERE to see what Julia’s House had to say about the day and do enjoy the photos below – we just lurve that lion!!! And he didn’t eat too many cream cakes either!

Perfect Vintage & Steam Wedding

Wedding steam trainSome brides have so much energy and great ideas for their wedding day that its a wonder to behold. When we helped Kimberley and Sam with their vintage styled wedding reception we knew it would be special – not every couple and their guests arrive at their venue by steam train and with the gorgeous Purbeck settings of the Swanage Railway together with all of the vintage details that Kimberley had planned; this wedding turned out to be spectacular!

Kimberley and Sam were married in Purbeck and then made their way together with all of their guests to the lovely village hall at Harman’s Cross via the Swanage Railway. We bedecked the hall with bunting and vintage tablecloths – but Kimberley also created a fabulous chill-out area with vintage throws and traditional toys for the children, a vintage pampering kit in the ladies bathroom with cute vintage soaps and tissues and a table planner with vintage papers – matched up to cute mini-milk bottles!

The collection of cakestands waiting to go out was incredible and with the guests dressing up to suit the vintage theme it looked wonderful and everyone really loved the vibe!

Many thanks for all your work over the wedding. The tea was lovely and the tables etc looked absolutely wonderful. It all went so well. We all thought you and your team did a splendid job. Thank you so much (from the grooms mum)

As the afternoon went on there were ice-creams, a bouncy castle and then fish and chips to finish off before the evening music – then the sun shone through the showers bringing with it the most glorious of rainbow’s to make a perfect ending to a truly lovely day! Here are some of the pictures….
