Time to smell the roses and Whiteport

Time for a night away from home
Time to smell the roses
Tomorrow we go to Daylesford and are staying the night at Cherry Tree Cottage B & B in their Garden Spa Apartment

When we come back I will let you know what the B & B is like
We plan on leaving early morning so as we can check out the local shops before we check into the B & B
There are supposed to be a lot of lovely places to visit in Daylesford


I was lucky enough to be the winner of 3 beautiful white tea towels on Lesley's blog Life at Number 10

Look at the beautiful bag that Jennifer from Whiteport sent the 3 tea towels in

Don't you just love the design - way to pretty use

Check out the Whiteport website and see all their amazing products

Michael and Chantelle's Wedding

Saturday 19th March 2011
The big day finally arrived.
I took the cakes to The Mornington Country Golf Club where the Wedding Reception was held

I was so pleased with the way they looked.
All that hard work had paid off

Such a pretty spot to be - this was when the room was being set up

Here are the boys waiting for the bride and her maids
Left to right - Groomsmen David, Dale then my sons Michael the groom and Daniel the Best Man

Ah, ha...he spots his gorgeous bride

Chantelle was such a radiant bride walking on the arm of her father David

Laughter as Michael puts the ring on Chantelle
Now it is Chantelle's turn
Finally - you may kiss the bride

This photo was taken after they signed the paperwork -Daniel Michael Chantelle and Holly
Unfortunately I don't have a photo with the other 2 bridesmaids Chloe and Brooke (Chantelle's sisters)
It was a beautiful day, perfect weather and such a fabulous occasion.
At the reception it was announced that they have a little one on the way, so lots more excitement is heading our way

EDITED (1.12pm) TO ANNOUNCE THE WINNERS OF PAY IT FORWARD - Irene from Irene's - Re-Vintaged and Pam from Bayside Rose so girls if you can email me your addresses that would be great
