It consists of the following items:
9 moulded obstacles
9 flags

All you need to supply is maybe a prize at the end of the game for the winner with the least strokes to each hole

David & Karen’s Rustic Wedding at Millbrook Estate

We were back at Millbrook estate celebrating an intimate wedding of 20 for David and Karen last week. They held their reception at the Retreat which is our most favourite places to dress as it’s a hidden gem near two lakes surrounded by trees and only round the corner from us. It’s a blank canvas with so many options. Our couple chose to have a barn dance on the grass for their guests and booked a local band and caller to ensure their feet weren’t all entangled.

Photos below are how we dressed the Retreat with ribbons, roses, netting and ivy. David and Karen also chose to have our vintage ladder and crates with our display items, and the Retreat was internally dressed with bunting, hearts and our jugs full of flowers. We added small jars with battery operated tealights and large hurricane lamps with candles for the evening.

If you would like us to take the pressure off you and style your wedding or event in Devon then please drop us an email with your ideas. We have lots of small and large props available.

 

 

 

 

 

Patron’s Lunch 12th June 2016

The Mall in London, will be the setting for it’s largest street party to mark The Queen’s 90th birthday and to recognise her patronage of more than 600 charities and organisations worldwide.  There will be 10,000 guests, including the Queen herself.

The event is ticketed, and most of them have been allocated to all the charities and organisations to which Her Majesty the Queen is Patron, but we can still enjoy our own festivals by organising a party of our own. It doesn’t matter where you are why not get involved.

Local events and street parties are taking place on June 12th. Why not bring your street, road, community or village together and enjoy a fun afternoon. Whether small or large you too can play a part.

There are some great tips on HOW TO on the Patron’s Lunch website, and if you do organise a party then let them know and they will add it to their interactive map

A Courting Cake

Over the years we have been catering we have produced many different types of traditional cakes, however our most popular has been a three tiered fruit and fresh cream cake

Traditionally these were called courting cakes, the story goes that it is more a victoria sandwich on the top and and a shortbread on the bottom.  There are many variations, but traditionally they are filled with slightly over-ripe strawberries or raspberries and fresh whipped cream

We produce them for weddings of 6 or less when a traditional cake isn’t always required or our clients don’t want a cake full of buttercream.

Fresh Cream & Strawberry Cake for Vintage Wedding

These cakes are delightful and the above image is our version, three layers, the one below is three layers again with a mix of raspberries and strawberries used as a wedding cake.  If you would like two layers one with shortcake the other sponge please let us know.  We need about 2 weeks notice.
