A weekend of tea and cupcakes!

We pride ourselves on being flexible when it comes to bookings and this weekend certainly put the word "flexible" to the test.

Apart from Sat/Sun at the Wedding Fair in Bournemouth (including Friday setting up), we had a cry for help from the lovely Rebekah of The Three Tuns (, Bransgore as she had a last minute cancellation with one of her suppliers for the Craft Marquee at the Beer Festival to be held that weekend.

We were more than happy to help Rebekah and the lovely girls from Clever Cow ( were very enthusiastic and baked over 200 cupcakes, various flavours and toppings with only a few hours notice to help fill my empty cakestands!

We also managed to provide The Three Tuns with a shabby chic sweetie dresser stocked full of retro and vintage glassware and all the good old favourite penny sweets.  As you can guess this was very popular with all the children who were catered with two bouncy castles.

To give you an idea, here are a few images to show you how the marquee was transformed into a very pretty vintage afternoon tea area.

Pretty vintage style bunting, picnic baskets and flowers help set the scene

Gorgeous pink rosebud tablecloths with original vintage 3 tier cake stands

teapot with roses and wax flowers for pretty display

Roses "all over" was the theme!

The sign says it all!

We also provided the Sweet Dresser Buffet which proved more than popular with all the children at the event.
