It's been a while....

since I updated my blog. I've been so busy lately between my day job, family life and five....yes FIVE wedding fayres this month! I don't know if people are postponing their weddings because of the recession, but the four I've attended so far have been very quiet. Of course, you get the usual...'oh I'm making my own invitations, but I thought I'd come and get some ideas' which are a wedding stationer's worst nightmare. I'm sorry, but I work very hard to come up with designs, I don't need you to steal them. Ok, rant over.

I had fun at the fayres though - it's lovely to meet all the brides-to-be and hear their plans. It takes me back to when I was planning my own wedding just over two years ago.

Back in January this year, I joined the Dunfermline Wedding Co-op. Such a lovely bunch of people and very helpful too. I couldn't attend the last wedding fayre as my son was in a show sponsored by the National Theatre Scotland. I mentioned this to a couple of the people in the Co-op and they told me if I went up to the venue during the day and set up, they would break my display down and bring it back to Dunfermline where I could pick it up - how nice was that!

I've changed the way I lay out my table too - although I still have plans for more changes. However, that will have to wait a bit until I get the money to put them into action .... watch out here for updates in the near future. I thought you'd like to see my table though so I've added a couple of pics.

Hi Colette
Just picked up your comment on my blog. If you're ever along this part of Fife, drop in! We're open most days except Sunday and Monday.
By the way, I'm very impressed with your work, beautifully simple and classic.
Good luck with your fayres.
