The festive season in another month closer and many retailers and Christmas enthusiasts are well underway with their preparations for this year’s winter holiday. One of our favourite things about this time of year (aside from the seasonal fruits) is mulling our very own wine, for a tasty and traditional tipple. If you’re not a big fan of the drink itself, you can still have some fun making some for your friends and family.
Classic Mulled Wine Recipe
Mulled wine is made using a range of fruits and spices that infuse into the steadily heated wine, as not to boil off the alcohol. The following recipe makes enough for 1-litre bottle so can be easily multiplied for more!
Planning a wedding can be stressful at timed, but no more so than in winter. Not only have you got intense competition for a venue and a whole hoard of guests to organise, the weather can cause untold stress for brides and grooms to be. But one thing that won’t dampen your big day is our beautiful range of rustic wedding favours.
Chic Seating Plans
Everybody knows that the seating arrangement is one of the most challenging parts of planning a wedding; trying to ensure your guests are sat with people they know, relatives are together and plus ones are accounted for is no easy task. But once that’s finished, creating your place setting allows for a creative release and can be one of the most enjoyable elements of the preparations. Our range of wedding favour Stephanie Bottles with labels are an attractive and practical alternative to traditional card prints, simply fill with a tipple of your choosing, write on the names of your guests and let them take pride of place as your chic settings!
Light It Up
There’s nothing more romantic than candlelight which makes it perfect for celebrating your love with friends and family. Tealights are a simple and elegant way to add a touch of amour to your wedding and when encased in a small jam jar they can spread their light and give a homey and warm feeling. Whether you choose to scatter them across the tables, line the alter or edge a room, they make a uniquely special addition to any big day.
Something old, new, borrowed, blue and sweet! After the sit-down meal and a few drinks, guests can often be found hunting for something sweet to sample. If a sweet table is written into your wedding plans then you can dress it up as well as the rest of your venue, using our classic sweet jars. Shaped like the classic bell jars of sweet shops, they’re bound to spike some romanticised nostalgia amongst your guests.
