Did I meet the Bride and Groom?

I was given a lovely compliment the other day when one of my brides told me that her wedding guests kept asking if the person who had made the cake toppers had met them both!  I thought this was really nice and a gave me a boost!

This was the bride adn groom's topper.

Crazy Wedding Season

I'm happy to say that the crazy wedding season is keeping me more than busy and its now got to the stage where I am having to turn clients down because I just can't fit them in.  This is usualy the case between Aug and Oct when last minute brides-to-be realise that its time to get the finale details sorted - only to find out that most of us that make personalised cake toppers have been fully booked for some time now.

I have taken orders for cake toppers two years in advance which to me is super organised for some brides-to-be and its also great to get them in my diary!

I have had to put my wedding favours website to one side for now as I just don't have the time that is needed to build it up and get it live but I hope by next year it will be ready.

Pictures of a couple of sets of toppers that have kept me busy.

Some More Toppers Done in May

Forgot these ones:

A well travelled bride and groom with passports, champage, roses and chocolates.  I enjoyed doing the fine detail on the dress and it was my first box of chocolates and champage bottle so was pretty chuffed with myself.

Bride wanted to be sat on her Hetty Hoover with leg in the air showing off her garter while leaning up against her policeman groom

May News

May was a tornado of mishaps, fighting red tape and a much needed short weekend break in Derby with great friends!

Our car was written off by something that fell off the back of a white van - who did not even stop! Whatever it was it blew out two tyres and damage the undercarriage. Long story short we managed to buy another car which turned out to cost a further £600 with new tyres, exhaust, full service and repair the air con! Well you never know, we may just get a decent summer this year .

Just glad that May is out of the way - apart from the our time spent in Derby that is.

Anyhoooo, a few of the toppers I managed to get done:

Latest Toppers

Things are still pretty hectic from the car being writen off to a hospital visit for me and  me having to drive hubby back and forward to work its taken its toll and my time has been really stretched.

Hopefully I may get some of it back next week as we are off to the car auctions tomorrow night to see if we can get a car that will make do to get hubby from A to B until we get sorted out properly.

Just a few toppers that have been keeping me busy.

Some of my Latest Toppers

Ive been a bit stretched this month with more than normal hospital visits and things have been a bit manic.  My topper orders this month seem to be taking longer than normal and I have some really good ones coming up. 

From the dancing scene of Grease to a spanish bull and jersey cow and a mountaineer and a cylists.......all will keep me on my toes no doubt!

Here is a couple of sets that the weddings have now taken place.

Wedding Favours

I have slowly been working on my Wedding Treasures sister website which is called Favours for your Wedding and hopefully will have it up and running in a few weeks - but I'm not holding my breath!

I have for the moment managed to place a page of a few wedding favours here on my toppers website but this is just a small range of what I am going to offer.

Cutie Pie Wedding Cake Toppers

I have introduced a range of Cutie Pie Wedding Cake Toppers.  These are based on the very first wedding toppers I ever did and I have had quite a good feedback on putting them on my webpage.

Because they are only 2 to 3 inches tall these cake toppers would be ideal for the small wedding cake - not to mention a better price for the budget onscious bride-to-be. 

I feel these would also be a great memento for an engagment party and then they could even be used on top of the couples wedding cake!

Making them that little bit more personlised to each couple would only require a hair and flower colour change and still keeping the cost down.

Have to admit that I love them, but then again I'm biased! lol

My New Banner

I've finally managed to get myself sorted with a new banner which I hope over the weeks I can get it up and running in all my sloted places.

Still not 100% happy with how its looking at the top of my blog page but will work on it.

Wedding Fayres done in February

I managed to get two wedding fayres done in February.  The first one was not a good one for anybody because it was not advertised and placed in the middle of nowhere with no signs stating there was a wedding fayre even on!   All of the suppliers that I spoke to told me not to be disheartened as they were not all like this and to put it down to experience.

The second one was a week later and I was more positive only to be shot down on waking up to a blanket of deep and dangerous snow which turned out to be one of the main reasons that not a lot of people came through the doors. 

Those that did come showed a lot of interest and a quite a few of my leaflets and business cards were picked up so fingers crossed I get some feedback from them.

I think if its taught me anything on wedding fayres it made me realise that its not really worth the time and effort doing the smaller ones and I was advised to spend the money wisely on table space and only do one or two of the big ones once a year!  This advise I think I will follow.

Doing the wedding fayres did give me experince in setting up and displaying my table and I feel that next time I will be more relaxed and able to set up with the minimum of fuss and time. so not all was wasted!

Getting Back into the Swing of Things!

Think I may have to give my wrist a good slapping because I can't quite seem to get back into the swing of things.

I need to get this family of toppers done and dusted before I can concentrate on getting myself ready for the weddings fayres which are now only next month! eeeek!

Starting to think how a good holiday with a burst of sunshine would do wonders but its far too soon to be thinking of that that just yet, which is a shame.

Right, lets get this year started with a good week and get things 'tidied' up and get on with whats needed!
