Vintage wedding confetti!

Well look who is on the UK's number one wedding website!
The lovely people at UKbride have included our fabulous vintage wedding confetti in an article today!
The story of the confetti...
After getting engaged last year my hunt for the perfect wedding decor began. Unable to find items on the high street, I began to look at how beautiful old objects could be made into something special. Now armed with a stack of antique french linen and champagne saucers, I began on the finishing touch to any table...the confetti. What better way to convey the true romance of a wedding than to have pieces of an old love story adorning your room or scattered over you and your new hubby as you leave the church? My confetti has a beautiful aged colour from its years in existence. Pure vintage love. I now want to share this with other bride to be ladies, to help make their day even more special.

Visit Colette's Antique Boutique for more wedding delights!

Crates glorious Crates

Party time!

What to do with a vintage crate when you have a party? Create your very own vintage cooler box!

Line your box with a simple bin liner to secure, and fill with ice....and Voila!

As you can the time I got round to taking a picture most of the bubbly seemed to have been consumed!

Why not try stacking these crates full of cooled drinks for a vintage wedding? The perfect wedding decor...and useful too!
