Gorgeous Mapperton Wedding!

Back in September we were asked to supply some vintage china for the wedding of the lovely Jenny and Russell from Surrey. They held their celebration at beautiful Mapperton Gardens in Beaminster, a gorgeous back drop for a wedding with a touch of vintage style! Here’s some pictures of their day to chase away the snowy blues! We just love Jenny’s dress, the splash of sunshine yellow in the little bridesmaid dress and those pretty informal table flower arrangements – and Russell does look rather dashing too!

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!
