Then we set up a jar decorating table for tea lights to go inside. The 'bits' included tissue paper, paper doilies, brown string and various coloured raffia chord/ ribbon, brown paper and sticky-tape. I only have a picture of my creation but there were some beautiful ones made- all different shapes and sizes. Mine was from a pesto jar so quite cute and small whereas the tall slim curry jars looked very effective (and there were a couple left over for me to play with this week, YAY).
The bride-to-be has very talented sisters, one of whom is a budding photographer A pink backdrop was created using fabric and props were left strewn around a cornered off section. They had a large empty photo-frame and the guests were left to dress up for pictures etc. here's one of me taking Louise taking a picture. Once her pics are ready, I will upload a few from the day.
I had also made fairy cakes for people to decorate themselves; providing some squirty icing in a can, a bowl of pink butter icing and then options of silver balls, sugar crystals and sprinkles. There are no photos of these as they were devoured upon completion! I did, however take pictures of the cakes one of the guests made: WOW
They looked and tasted fabulous! April also baked brownies and jam tarts despite being in work all week (including this morning) and having had baked copious amounts for International women's day yesterday and said she will be baking an additional 50+ biscuits tonight for the children in Sunday school to decorate for her church mothers tomorrow!
April also brought along lots of nail varnishes etc and gave most of the guests manicures. We finished with games- tissue paper brides dresses, Mr and Mrs Quiz and there was a pass the bouquet game that we ran out of time for :(
