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!

Pot to the Kettle Never Kettle to the Pot!

We’ve shared this wonderful vintage You Tube video before but it’s so much fun we felt we just had to share it all over again – it’s guaranteed to cheer you up when it’s raining constantly and the wind seems to be doing it’s level best to level everything! It’s a gorgeous peice of social history – check out the hair styles, the furniture and the absolutely HUGE teapot – and we completely adore the Tea Instructor – one of the scariest men ever – those eyebrows and he never blinks – never!! We think the 6 steps to making a proper cup of tea should be laid down in law and tea should always be sold in the biggest tea chest you can carry by people with the most glorious 1940’s cut glass accents – it would be so much more fun than trying to find a decent tea at the local supermarket. And please – if you learn nothing else from watching this little video do ALWAYS remember – take the pot to the kettle NEVER the kettle to the pot – Gran would be proud!
