Marathon Monday

Yesterday was Marathon Sunday here in London. Nothing beats London on Mara Sunday – 700,000 spectators cheering on over 36,000 runners on a beautiful warm sunny Spring day. Makes you feel happy to be a human, I reckon!

Ruth and Rose ran the London Marathon two years ago – have you ever known anyone to look so good after such a thing?!

#73 Rose’s twinteresting bridal shower!

Our big sis Rose gets married later this month! Wooo!

Last weekend we held a little afternoon tea party for her friends, her mum-in-law to be, our mum and little sis (plus Florrie and Wally the cat!). Rose threw fab bridal showers for both of us so we really wanted to make it extra special to return the favour, plus any excuse for a little crafting right?!

In New Zealand it’s traditional to hold a Kitchen Tea to celebrate the bride to be. This stems back from the days where getting married meant setting up house away from your parents for the first time, so guests brought kitchen staples to stock the nearly weds pantry. It’s a wonderful excuse for some games and cake (and a bit o’ bunting), and also something nice to involve mums and other special people that may not fancy a night on the tiles for the hen’s party (Tigertiger- enough said!).¬†Our theme was hearts and pearls as Rose is the ultimate girly girl (except when she’s on the hockey field).

So here are a few pics from our party- there was nothing copied specifically from pinterest this time around, but I’m sure you’ll probably have seen a few of these ideas/themes around before.
