Wedding Signs and Man Wedding Things in Marbella!

May 27th, 2013 Posted by Delightful details, Spanish Wedding Stationery, Spanish Wedding Stationery in Marbella, Wedding Signs Spain, Wedding Stationery Spain 0 thoughts on “Wedding Signs and Man Wedding Things in Marbella!”

We have had a fabulously busy weekend creating gorgeous details for our weddings and thought we would share some of them with you albeit they are our own photos taken on our iPhones and we will of course be sharing the pros photos with you as soon as we receive them and start blogging our weddings we design and create to share ideas and inspirations with you.

This week seems to have focussed on man things, the often forgotten and neglected groom!!  

Most of our grooms are thankfully modern men and are totally involved in the planning when it comes to a) the cars and b) the music and c) the bar, but usually when discussing all the decoration details, including bridal bouquets, their eyes often glaze over and within 30 minutes of most of our meetings they have managed to wander off to find a cool beer in a local bar which is conveniently situated next door to our shop!

This is when the fun starts as our brides then open up to us and we can plan all sorts of lovely surprises for their men, from groom´s cakes to personalised bar signs and cigar bars.  It does not take much to add some special details into the day and honour your man. We have even created football themed candy bars as a surprise which is really fun.

A simple groom personalised bar sign adds a cute touch and setting up a high table with a cigar bar is a really fun idea and overcomes the often asked question what do we do about favours for the men.

This idea is proving very popular as we dress our cigar bars with personalised cigar menus and various manly props including camping lanterns and a cool hat stand creating a special corner for the men of the wedding to discuss football things!  

Apparently at yesterday´s wedding the styled cigar bar was a huge hit and delighted all the guests!  It is the small attention to creating little details without spending a huge sum of money that can make such a difference to a wedding.

We have been busy creating our gorgeous stationery from our Sevillian Orange stationery range to our vintage Spanish signage for our weddings and we have been having a lot of fun so we thought we would share some of our daily inspirations and weddings with you before our professional photos arrive!

Wedding Cake Designer, Sweet Things By Fi, opens her first cake boutique in Gibraltar

May 19th, 2013 Posted by Cupcakes, Wedding Cakes in Spain, Wedding Shop in Marbella, Wedding Suppliers on the Costa Del Sol 0 thoughts on “Wedding Cake Designer, Sweet Things By Fi, opens her first cake boutique in Gibraltar”

What can I say other than I am so proud of Fi and her latest achievement of opening her first gorgeous designer cake shop, Sweet Things By Fi, in Gibraltar.  

Fi´s shop is a true reflection of her personal style and is a delightful piece of shabby chic heaven and much more importantly filled with gorgeous cakes!

So much thought and design has gone into this beautifully presented shop. 

I have been privileged to have been slightly involved having been sent wallpaper samples to look at, colour swatches, kitchen tile samples and watched Fi as she transformed pieces of furniture with beautifully chosen paint colours and seen her strive through what seemed mountains of paperwork to finally open the doors to present a beautiful showroom to showcase her work and host clients.

 I feel like Fi´s surrogate mother so I am bursting at the seams with pride as I have had watched Fi´s huge talents along with determination start this business from scratch to becoming one of the most talented cake designers here in Spain.  I have to mention at this point the continuing support of her fabulous hubby, Clark, who has been a mainstay in supporting Fi in her business and been an absolute rock throughout. 

I fear I maybe banned from visiting her cake shop due to the fact I steal her cakes, I am sure there will be some sort of Laura alarm system in place shortly attached to every cupcake :(!

Here is wishing Fi every success and if you wish to get in contact with Fi please visit her webpage Sweet Things By Fi.
The gorgeous photos were taken by Marea Thompson of Lucky Girl Weddings and do hop over to Marea´s website too for some wonderful eye candy or to see more of Fi´s shop hop over to Marea´s blog.
