In the Garden: Cider Fest 2016

Saturday 6th August was something I had been planning and looking forward to for a long time....our very own cider featival!  We needed some help with drinking all of the cider we made earlier in the year

The first challenge leading up to the party was lighting....I wanted to make sure the garden looked just an beautiful at night as it did during the day so spent some time browsing the internet then came across lights4fun which later became my one stop shop, ordering two sets of the festoon lights to decorate the barn and copper micro lights for the food table

The next challenge....tableware.  I wanted to make sure I used recyclable and preferably biodegradable products wherever possible.  So, I opted for bamboo boats and forks from Amazon and Liberty print cups and napkins from the Pretty Little Party Shop to add style and beauty

To avoid our party goers unnecessarily picking up a new cup between every drink because 'they were sure which cup was there's', I purchased some Dovecraft glittery stickers for labelling the cups, they were great fun!!

The week before the party saw the arrival of our trusty posh potties, putting up of my homemade wooden bunting and the cleaning down of all the garden furniture

I left the decision of wanting live much pretty late but after a lot of searching, and I mean a lot, with the help of Joe from Mango Music , I booked Sebastian Tree and he was brilliant!!

The night was finished off with toasted marshmallows around the camp fire!!  A great end to the perfect weekend....it won't be long before the process starts all over again!!
