Fluttering paper hearts

Having fun spending a little time filling glassine envelopes with confetti for our guests. Getting hold of plain white confetti in small amounts locally is nigh on impossible but good old W H Smiths came good for me with these grey and ivory biodegradable hearts. These are even better than white as they match Deans shirt and my shoes.

I was never a little girl who dreamed of getting married and my boy hadn't planned on it either so it came as quite a surprise to us both when we decided that was what we wanted, thats why I guess we aren't going too nuts, casual, maybe a tad too chilled out, my relaxed approach to organizing this wedding and late ordering means we still have no invites! I hope they arrive soon. Well if they don't show up before they'll make pretty thank you cards. Luckily the family know where to go and at what time (you do, don't you?)

I did however have a lot of fun as a child dreaming of being showered with confetti. Shaking blossom from branches, kicking Autumn leaves in the air, emptying hole punch trays and launching the contents skyward. My love of paper in all forms obviously started to show itself early. What with the delicate hearts and glassine envelopes I'm in dream come true paper heaven!

Ooh they are very pretty and cool.
We were only allowed to have petals or bubbles at our wedding. I would have loved those pretty hearts.

my boy and i also decided to tie the knot. after 6 years of togetherness, he immigrating to australia, twin boys and running our own little cafe for the past three years we felt we deserved a party.

just a little registry wedding for the family followed by high tea at a lovely old hotel and then a bigger bash at an hip little pub down the block for all the mates!!

we are doing a black and white theme. i got a little wool mini dress and we are going very sixties.

our twins are going in little western shirts. gosh! it is going to be awesome.

good luck with your plans.
