Today as saw me working on displays for my Lemonade Stand for an up coming wedding in November. I have had so much fun sourcing new ideas and creating mock displays ready to present to my bride and groom to be.

I love theme tables and my lemonade stand seems to be a hit with all for weddings, birthdays and events and not all are for summer events proving they can work at any time of the year.

I have put together an inspiration board of the pictures I found that I think would work well at any event.

If you are thinking of having a theme table please contact me at butterflyivy@outlook.com or 07956002217, I love putting them together and would love to hear from you.

Happy Friday everyone, the weekend is upon us!

This week has flown by for me, I have been busy with the aftermath of Sundays wedding fair which as saw me speaking to some lovely brides about their weddings.

Whilst on my stand I observed the engaged couples walking around with that wedding glow about them excited to see what was in store for them. I stood watching the brides eyes light up as they spoke about their upcoming day and the plans they have made whilst the grooms stood by their side looking like fish out of water but doing it for love.
With being married for only 2 years myself I remember those feelings well - the excitement of the day to come but also the knowledge that this person will be with you through life, good and bad for (as you vow) for as long as you both shall live.

But what is it that makes a lasting marriage? after the excitement of planning the wedding and after buzz of the day when you return to everyday life just you and your husband what makes it a happy marriage?

I am sure if you asked all married couples you would get a list as long as your arm after speaking to many myself and reading up what people say the verdict seems to be three key elements: Laughter, Lust and Loyalty.

Couples that laugh together stay together as they say, Lust  really needs no explanation and loyalty - everything in a marriage flows downhill towards it. If you have all three you cant go wrong.

So brides to be and married couples there it is - enjoy and remember the planning stages as these may seem stressful at the time but when you look back will be happy memories of you and your groom joining your personalities, families and lives together and take with you through your married life love, laughter, lust and loyalty and you have all the basics to have a long and happy marriage!


So I have taken the step from writing my thoughts and ideas in my scrapbook to starting this blog. It will mainly consist of all the things that ramble around my brain from weddings, parties, what I have found out along the way in my business and all things pretty, girlie and vintage.

I cant say I was one of those girls who grew up planning their wedding, to be honest I never even thought about my wedding day, but since the day I got engaged it was like a spark had been set off and I loved everything about them.
Its more the planning and styling that I love, I am very creative as a person and the idea of creating a day personal to you that you cant do in everyday life excites me. The planning of how the room will look, what décor the tables will have on them and the favours the guests will receive brings out in me what can only be described as a "child in a sweet shop" effect. I will be using this blog to share with you all of the things I love, with inspiration photos of weddings, events and vinta

I will try and update my blog every few days with things I find along my way.

Stay tuned and I hope you enjoy! - BIV x
