LOL!!

In Royal Wedding mode I found today's Happy Friday Find.

Are you planning to watch Will & Kate tie the knot tonight? Will you dig out your dress for the occasion?

My Twirling Betty Mini Bunting!

Mr Postman dropped past today with a little parcel for me - my personalised Mini Bunting handmade by Christen of Twirling Betty!!

Seriously, how stinkin' cute is it?!? I LOVE it!

I have always loved the idea of mini bunting for birthday cakes but when I saw Twirling Betty's personalised ones I just knew I had to order one with Giggleberry on it. Christen matched the fabrics to the Giggleberry logo colours so well and was an absolutely gem every step of the way (even when I stuffed up my address details for postage - Duh to me)

This little beauty is not for a cake, she now lives happily on my sewing table - YAY!!

With only two sleeps away from Mr Easter Bunny hopping past and hiding a bunch of eggs in the garden... you're gonna need a basket to collect them.

How about this insanely adorable Pennant Bunting and Silhouette {EASTER} Basket!?! You can make this yourself with the help of the fun tutorial for it on Polka Dot Bungalow blog HERE.

Whatever you and your family are up to over the Easter break, enjoy it and stay safe if you are traveling.
Happy Friday and Happy Easter xx

A little Easter break!

The Giggleberry family is off on a mini break over Easter with family to visit Grandma and Papa Giggleberry (YAY!). With Easter falling on the same weekend as ANZAC day this year, Australians have an extra long weekend to look forward to and I am especially spoilt as Tuesday is a public holiday and my birthday! Hooray!!

Our Etsy store will stay open over the long weekend and you are more than welcome to place orders but please be aware no mail will go out until Wednesday the 27th of April.
Any emails that come through will be replied to as always but with a little delay as we plan to relax, catch up with family, eat chocolate and enjoy the days off.
Thanks for understanding.

Dying Easter Eggs - DIY

This weekend coming we have a few people coming over for brunch so being only 1 week away from Easter I'm thinking I might decorate the table with a bit of an Easter feel.
I have a plan to use a few things already in my cupboard for making the table look fun but needed to have some Easter eggs for the final touch so what a perfect opportunity for a little creative session with the kiddies!

You'll Need:
Hard boiled eggs
Food colouring
Wax crayons
Hot water
White vinegar
Tongs or slotted spoon
Small bowls
Drying rack
Paper towel or newspaper (to avoid your work space ending up a multi colored mess)

I hard boiled the eggs last night so they would be cool and ready for colouring today. We started by drawing some patterns on the egg shells with crayons.

Then placed them in little bowls of food colouring, water and vinegar mix (a how to video and mixture quantities can be found HERE)

Leave them in the liquid until the eggs are the desired colour then with your tongs or slotted spoon remove them from the liquid and place on a cooling rack to dry.

Milla LOVED helping me with these!! and I think she will be rather chuffed to see them used on the table when or guests join us for brunch on Sunday.
