My wedding in a nutshell…

Just back from a teeny-weeny mini moon (I stole that word from Zoe…!) in Amsterdam, and now bracing myself to try and sort out the mountains of wedding props and paraphernalia currently sitting in my flat… a few more wedding pics/details to follow!

Little bit quiet on the blog front recently, thanks to impending wedding and all the last-minute craziness that goes along with it…

Here’s a little photo from months ago, when I was stressing about the invites going out late. Not sure why I was surprised as most of the things done in the Threesmallapples household are usually done in a rush and behind schedule…

Little note to self: Don’t be late on Saturday!

What do you get if you mix a day with your closest girlfriends, a very sunny weekend and a lot of alcohol? Hen-idorm, of course!

And the best way to recover from a hen party conducted in 30 degree heat?

The best thing after a little bit of weekend gardening?

A tiny tea picnic, and a sprawl on the grass.

A less Owly cat

Six months in and it looks like Siu Mai (otherwise known as Owl Cat) is finally starting to trust us.

I know it might not look like it, but me and the Owl are “cool”.  She’s even been known to have a little purr these days.

With the ThreeSmallApples wedding extravaganza (whoops, hyped it!) looming, I’ve been every so slightly distracted. There is SO MUCH still to do, and it doesn’t always help that Mr ThreeSmallApples is the one of the most chilled people ever. So chilled, in fact, that when I send him rambling but bullet-pointed emails because I feel a bit like this, he usually doesn’t reply. ARG!

One of the things on the never-ending (it actually appears to be growing) list is flowers.

Do you know the cost of wedding flowers? Like all wedding related things, they are so ridiculously expensive that you feel like having twigs instead. And then they die. Money well spent(!).

Instead of selling my flat (where would the cats live?) to pay a florist, I thought I might do the flower arrangements myself. It can’t be that hard can it?  I was quite pleased with that jam jar… but the flowers in the garden aren’t really going to go very far. And it’s probably best I have a practice with something a bit bigger than a geranium in a jam jar.

So I dragged Mr ThreeSmallApples down to Columbia Road Flower Market.

Dahlias… Note to self: plant this week!

Might cheat with herbs since this year’s Parsley is a total disaster

Sunflowers are a bit of a fav. And they last for ages.

The “trick” (according to Mr ThreeSmallApples, who has no flower arranging experience) is to pick some stems with a head that faces ‘up’ and some that have a tilted head. I hate that he’s always right.

I added some pink Gerberas. Not because I’m obsessed with pink (grown out of that phase.. ahem) but because there was a bit of a disappointing Gerbera selection ‘down’ the market. Might have to have a word…

And there we have it, another floral success!

Now to do something like this on a much larger, slightly more stressful (probably…) scale.

Who said flower arranging was hard?

A little selection of  flowers from the garden of Threesmallapples HQ.

True, I’m not quite Paula Pryke, but maybe with a little practise…?

Apart from the one minute when I was in the garden, this weekend has been spent cutting, folding, glueing and sticking the most complicated wedding invites in the world.

Luckily, it was a pretty good minute…

Pink, flowers, gardening
