Scrummy Lilac

It's the dress. That's what got me first... this stunning Vera Wang dress. Need I say anymore? Then I remembered some lovely lilac invitations we've done and that's what lead me to this lilac inspiration board.

It's just such a pretty colour and can be wonderful to use as a colour scheme within a wedding. Use as much or as little as required. Did you know that in the language of flowers, purple lilacs represent the first emotions of love, while white lilacs symbolise youthful innocence. Because I did not. So there you go.

The creative berry has a birthday

I thought I'd take advantage of sister younger being away in Vietnam (and currently on a boat cruise with no internet access). Wonder how much trouble I'll get into for this...


Today is the creative berry's birthday... Wednesday 21st September. And I'm not going to mention how old she is turning.

For me ('sister older' as she likes to refer to me) it's hard to imagine just how on earth she can be the age that I can't mention... because it seems like just yesterday she was this tiny wee little girl following me around everywhere...

But the years have flown by and she's all grown up now, getting more and more beautiful every day.

I feel so lucky to have such an AMAZING sister. It has been wonderful working with Charlotte over the last couple of years - I mean all of Cocoa Berry's wonderfulness comes straight from her! Not only that, she has always been there for me. Always. We speak constantly. We text constantly. And she always makes me laugh. Out loud. When I least expect it. SO it has to be said...

And so Charlotte, when you do get back from your wonderful holiday to Vietnam, you will of course find this on your doorstep.

I was going to try to arrange to have this waiting for you...

But I figured you didn't need it.

And so, my gorgeous sister, happy happy birthday. I hope you celebrate in style. I know you will.

I'm looking forward to catching up as soon as you're back, when there WILL be plenty of this.

Lots of love always, sister older (aka Lucy)
