Save the Dates ...

Finally, we have our Save the Dates out to both our family and friends here in England and in France and I can't tell you how happy I am.

I looked at so many ideas all over the internet and saw some pretty wonderful 
and exciting ideas that were truly spectacular. Gosh if you haven't heard of pinterest yet then may I suggest that you get on over there right now to be wooed ?!

With so many great ideas in mind we were able to decide upon a theme... whoopee and yes the best thing is that they reflect us as a couple and I am so so so happy with the result .... You see Eddy and I love to organise dinner for family and friends and whipping up something truly scrumptious for dessert usually has my heart singing for joy. 

So I hoped and prayed that a photo shoot of Eddy and I holding a delicious cake {of course baked by my own hands} would turn out as well as I had planned.

And I think they did. What do you think ?

I especially love the fact that they look so sweet in transparent envelopes wrapped with twine ... oh and not forgetting the little added touch of a heart awwwww 

Have a truly wonderful weekend !

Love Chrissi xo

PS. For added interest. We are soon going to launch a new service on With Passion and Love.

So stay tuned !

these turned out fabulous chrissi! i just found you from blogbrunch and i'm excited to be your newest follower and go learn some more about you:) i've never seen transparent envelopes before - where did you get the idea from that??

Hi Elisabeth ! So happy to have you as a follower ... blog brunch was so fabulous ... it was my first time but it certainly will be the first of many !! Loved it ... learnt so much.

Oh as for the transparent envelopes ... I thought I would be able to source them, but no. I looked EVERYWHERE ... in the end I had to make 50 by hand ... so exhausting but relieved to have made them ... I thought about ditching the idea, but I just knew the 'Save the Dates' would look so much better ... so happy I stuck with the idea :)

Oh as for the idea on pinterest of course !!!

Love Chrissi xo
