Dreaming of baby girl wardrobe staples

Not all baby girls need to wear bright-pink-floral-marshmallow-shaped dresses – sometimes simple, plain, well designed items are an underrated wardrobe staple.

Jay & Rob – A love story

The Central Nest loves nothing more than a wedding, especially a beautiful, spring themed wedding. Jay & Rob have shared the details of their wonderful day with us. What an absolutely beautiful day. Congratulations.

Jay & Rob

Mr & Mrs Duffy

The love birds:  Jay Denhard and Robert Dufty

Reception & ceremony: Algona on Mount Panorama Estate

Theme: Spring

The Dress: Beautiful 13 layer Veroma Classic Chocolate and pink dress

Groom & wedding party attire: Black Suit and vest. The boys in our wedding party wore black suits and ties and the girls wore plum floor length dresses.

What a spectacular dress

The gorgeous veroma chocolate and pink dress

Decorations: Black table cloths and chair covers with green sashes. We decided to keep the tables simple and used tea light candles and blossoms.

Food: The awesome food was prepared by Algona. Entrée consisted of caesar or antipasto plate. The main were lamb shanks on a bed of sweet potato and a jus or chicken sundried tomato and a white wine sauce.

Cake:  A delicious Croquembouche made by the beautiful and talented Margo Burke.

Drinks: We had an open bar with beer, wine and soft drink. The bridal party had champagne to toast.

Photographer: The very clever and talented Steve and Julie (the ninja) Hastedt. Their photos were truly awesome and Steve and Jules just made it such a pleasant and relaxing day. They went above and beyond to create such amazing photos.

Cars: We had a V8 commodore and a Ford Falcon for the boys and a mini bus for the girls as there were 14 in the bridal party.

Rings: Gold and diamond ring for Jay and a titanium/carbon fibre ring for Rob all from Michael Hill Jewellers

Stationary: Brian Burke printing

Special moments: Jay says – Seeing my dad cry his eyes out and the look on the guests faces when I started to walk down the aisle. Also the moment I saw my gorgeous husband at the end of the aisle, and the smile radiating from his face. The reception was totally awesome and the whole day was just so relaxing. The bridal waltz. Oh, and the first glimpse of me all dressed, hair make up done.

Rob says – Hearing the song that Jay walked down the aisle too (My heart is beating like a jungle drum) and seeing her look so beautiful in her dress. The reception and the whole day was amazing. Driving around in the mini bus for photos.

Guests: 102

Cost: Around $14,000

Little girl dreams

There is something so special about little girls and if you are lucky enough to have some of the beautiful little creatures in your life you MUST look at Tutu Du Monde. It is this wonderful place of inspiration and colour, dreams and texture. It makes me smile and shows me how gorgeous little people can be. The autumn/winter collection 2013 is what dreams are made of.

Danielle Louise.. Yes please

Danielle Louise – Orange

Sometimes when I can’t sleep I look at clothes. I have a theory that if I am not sleeping I might as well be dreaming. I have found some new pieces at Danielle Louise that I now need. Okay, want but it’s nearly the same.

Danielle Louise is located at 222 Anson Street, Orange (just in case you are feeling generous and want to buy me a present)
