Norwich Florist for Winter Weddings

Ohhh, isn’t there just something magical about a winter wedding!  All those possibilities for sumptuous rich fabrics such velvet bridesmaids dresses and fur wraps (fake fur that is) to keep off the crisp winter chill, beautifully lit evening Receptions, and maybe even fireworks, makes me wonder why most weddings are in the Spring/Summer.  Whether it is a December wedding with all the Christmas Sparkle or a New Years Eve celebration to greet the New Year with a promise of the best year yet for the happy couple, you will need flowers as even with the glitter of the season a wedding isn’t a wedding without flowers.

Winter Wedding Flowers look fabulous.  I will always love white roses and foliage for a wedding but you could change this to red roses are have both white and red.   It is most cost effective to consider flowers which have a year-round presence, such as roses, lisianthus, veronica, alstroemeria and gypsophila. Fortunately, these work well with the jewel-like tones that are popular with winter colour schemes.  Adding berries to your red rose bouquet is also an effective way of acknowledging you are happily getting married in Winter rather than Summer.

 

If you are lucky enough to live in East Anglia, you can always ask Norwich Wedding Florist Claire Carney of https://clairesfloralandballoondesigns.co.uk to design and deliver your wedding flowers to your budget and to achieve the look you are after.  Claire creates bespoke wedding flowers so there is no need to just select on a website and hope for the best.  Claire offers a personal touch and works with you to ensure you are happy with the results.

Cookie Crumbles – yummy cake time!

I was delighted to receive a cake for one baking kit from Cookie Crumbles.  The mug was delivered in a presentation box with a sweet little spoon and cooking instructions (very important).

 

Looks simple enough!

 

All you have to do is pour your dry cake mix into the mug, add 2 tbsp of milk and 1 tbsp of vegetable oil, stir well and put it in the microwave.  A kind of magic that Disney himself would be proud of then happens.   I wouldn’t have thought possible with so little effort from me.  I only wish my children could have seen this coconut chocolate cake of goodness rising in its cup, they would have been spellbound.  After the microwave had gone ping, the difficult part!  I am not sure how I coped with the 2 minute wait before I could plunge my little spoon in but I did and it was worth wait – it was delicious.  Although it is a cake, it has the comforting warmth of a chocolate pudding too.  It was like a big chocolate hug as the weather is turning cooler in the run up to Christmas.

I am so pleased to see that the ingredients list has all things you would expect to find a cake and nothing more – wholemeal wheat, flour, sugar, desiccated coconut, plain chocolate chips, white chocolate chips and baking powder.  Not 2o additional ingredients that I cannot pronounce much less know what they are.  It is such a joy to find none of the artificialness usually associated with cake mixes.

I must admit, I am feeling slightly guilty now as my mug for my little cake of wonderfulness does say ‘Cake for One Special Dad’.  Oopps! Never mind,  I can still have the empty mug!   I think Cookie Crumbles Mug cakes are a great Christmas gift for a Dad or Mum (a pretty pink version is also available) as a different type of stocking filler or as an unexpected gift this Christmas

The finished or should that be half eaten cake!
