My cousin and his wife were vegan, so rather than giving them the option of salad in bread with no butter, my mum and I whipped up some tasty vegan treats - scones, falafels, and the wonderful chocolate cake above. They had vegan cheese and mayonnaise in their sandwiches, and soya milk for the tea - I heard from my Aunt that they actually took the leftovers home in freezer bags!
The flowers were all from the Boarhunt Flower Mill, and are completely fake. Real flowers were out of our budget, but to suit the country-vintage-retro-afternoon-tea style day, some sorts of blooms had to be present. I was amazed at the quality and choice, and now also have flowers that will never wilt dotted around our little flat! We simply bound them together with stem tape, and then wrapped ribbons over the top. The dress was £200 from eBay (never worn - the seller found a nicer one) and the bag was £5 from New Look. Bargains!
My lovely, wonderful, amazing Dad.
My beautiful Mum, who helped with absolutely everything - if it weren't for her, nothing would have looked even half as nice as it did.
Continuing with the theme of DIY, my Mum and I (well, mostly my Mum actually - she's wonderful with flower arranging) tied ribbons around the tops of jam jars, pasta jars and the Boy's old juice jars, and filled them with more flowers. This was massively time consuming, but well worth it as the effect was just perfect. Favours were little retro-style paper candy bags filled with boiled sweets and chews. Nom nom nom!
