The day started with a lovely ceremony at Nuneaton Registry Office. We had readings from Morgan and Alison. And then onto a party with a bouncy castle and plenty of food and drink.
With help from my oldest friend Hayley we spent the night before making these giant pom poms - using a technique I found here. We clustered them together to decorate the room.
I choose pink, white and purple tissue paper to create a theme to link with Sophie's middle name - 'Violet'.
I ordered a dozen Violets from a super helpful nursery in Dorset who chose the prettiest in bloom plants and packaged them up and sent them to me the day before. Each table had a different potted Violet with some homemade vintage ribbon and paper lace doilies.
We invited those that had helped make the day so special to take a Violet home and help it grow - just as our Sophie will!
A fabulous day!
