I’m really excited about today’s post because it’s just so darn pretty. I meant, what better way to kick off a Tuesday that with some vintage high tea inspirations chock full of pretty details that would be perfect for a bridal shower! Styled so perfectly by Aleisha of Pretty My Love (whom I was lucky enough to get to know at Blogshop Sydney), this high tea epitomizes all things feminine, sweet and dainty and I just love it. Plus, what’s not to love when you’re surrounded by so much creativity as well as gorgeous natural surroundings?
Aleisha shares, “the brief was vintage inspired and on the beach for sunset cocktails, giving me great freedom to let my imagination run free and design and surprise them with a concept perfect for their occasion. The colour scheme was inspired by the beach at sunset, with varying hues of pinks, blues, beige and white.”
“The table design was intended to create a luxurious setting with lace placemat runners over a wooden sawhorse legged table, crystal vases with roses and a range of royal tea cups and high tea tiered stands. Kellie had arranged a cake that was shaped and decorated as a vintage suitcase, so we hand-wrote guests names on luggage tags and attached to tea cups as place cards.”
“The drinks cart held a beverage dispenser where cocktails were served in handled mason jars with the prettiest floral striped straws and pink and white polkadot boxes for guests to fill with candy from the mini candy buffet.”

Thanks Aleisha for sharing this lovely high tea with me today. Hope to cross paths with you again soon! Xx

I have just the right amount of prettiness to get you through your Monday blue peachies – the stunning Spring 2013 bridal collection of Sareh Nouri. Known for her figure flattering feminine and romantic yet modern silhouettes, guests will be left utterly breathless when a Sareh Nouri bride walks down the aisle. The first time I saw Sareh Nouri’s Spring 2013 bridal collection, I was left weak in the knees. The dreamlike shoot together with the whimsical yet girly gowns showed off the ethereal nature of the gowns so perfectly. Just take a look at the collection beautifully photographed by Emme Wynn Photography – you’ll see what I mean in no time.
Sareh Nouri’s Spring 2013 collection is now available at Miss Bride’s Wedding Shop in Hong Kong so book your appointments to try on one of these dreamy gowns. You’ll be walking on cloud nine no doubt!

I hope you have your bibs handy peachies because I’m going to have you drooling before you get to the end of this post. I mean you’re probably drooling already after seeing those delish quail eggs! That is what happens when you’re faced with the mouthwatering deliciousness from ARIA Catering. You might even remember the gastronomic delight that was the wedding of Sydney’s Gourmet Forager which had my (and I’m sure your) stomach grumbling even after the first image… and trust me, I know first hand how fabulous the food by ARIA Catering is because I had them at our wedding!
Launched in November 2010 by Matt Moran and Peter Sullivan, ARIA Catering offers unique catering with the freshest of fresh seasonal produce for any event location in and around Sydney and is also the exclusive resident caterer at the Sydney Opera House. Whether you’re having a wedding in the park or a dinner party at home, ARIA is able to cater for your venue and location with their extensive menu.
With their extensive canape selection, I remember the hubby and I finding it extremely difficult to select only four for our guests to munch on at cocktails!
Most amazing of all – their range of food stations! I’m talking oyster bars, mezze stations, charcuterie stations, paella stations, risotto stations, cheese and fruit stations and dessert station! You’d most definitely find me as a permanent fixture in one of those lines.
So if you’re in need of a caterer for your wedding or next event, contact ARIA Catering here to discuss all things delicious.
