Garden herbs and flowers in pinks and greens for the tables.
Scrummy drinks list, delicious chicken and salads for lunch...
...and plenty of cupcakes for everyone.
Bubbles to entertain...
...and Badminton for a little fun.
It was a gorgeous day with great friends and family. Thanks to everyone for all their help and for their beautiful gifts.

Lush green park setting... bunting in the trees, paper lanterns and the badminton net ready to go.

I have two phalaenopsis orchids which have been slowing budding. The first finally popped the other morning - it's so rewarding to watch them unfurl their pristine white petals over the course of a day - especially after the winter months waiting.

Peony Wedding

Coming up to November I'm already dreaming of peonies. Here are some pics from a gorgeous friend's wedding I did a few years ago.


I love the crinkly petals of spring poppies and the surprise of what colour each little bud holds.

For my little sister...

Sweet peas and pink champagne truffles...

Patron Dinner for Princess Mary of Denmark

Images: Eagle Image, David Goudie
A few pics I thought I'd share from The Alannah and Madeline Foundation Patron Dinner held for HRH Princess Mary of Denmark, last year at the NGV. We used two shades of purple hyacinth, white singapore orchids and white oriental lilies with tropical leaves for centrepieces down the middle of the single long table.
