21  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / AUSTRALIA / Re: dress websites for AUS on: February 21, 2007 03:52:52 PM
I forgot to say, my mum isn't a coat and shirt and skirt kinda gal, we have even been looking at bridesmaids dresses for her, she likes funky stuff (suprises me sometimes) and she wears more fashionable stuff then i do!
 Just thought id post again it incase people were thinking of a little old lady with a hat and coat, she definately isn't!

The wedding planning i am starting to get a hold of, but the toddler......not even two yet and she already says "no mummy don't" usually when i want a kiss or cuddle, or tell her to stop doing something and she throws herself on the floor and tantrums when she doesn't get her own way. She's super smart and i think that's the problem. She know's what she can get away with. Undecided

26  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: Rice Krispies Treat Wedding Cake? on: February 19, 2007 07:18:57 PM
I made rice crispies for my daughter's first birthday and freezed them for about 2 weeks before we ate them, they were fine, not mushy or hard or sticky
It was seriously over 35 degree C here in October Last year and they didn't melt in the heat but i think It depends on your humidity  our heat here is just a dry heat but in high humidity they might fall apart.
Hope it helps!
Oh and i have heard of Fourtune cookie cakes, where every one has a special fact or something about love to the bride and grrom.

when you soak the bases in the water, mix 1 tbsp vinegar, 1tbsp sugar and 1/2 tsp of bleach per table centre, this will help them last for longer. and DO NOT push them under the water, this will form air pockets and the flowers will dye way quicker.
Use all your large headed flowers first and fill in the gaps with the smaller ones, make sure you push them in at lease 2cm's and maybe put some colour co-ordinating pebble's in the bottom of the vase to stop it from tipping over.
Hope it all goes well, goodluck!
Oh and you can use Plasticine as the plastic putty.
I am a florist too, so between me and gekoace  you should have all the help you need Smiley
28  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: ideas for a garden/tea party theme? on: February 19, 2007 06:43:23 PM
I am having a tea party for mine....well sort of, i am having like a mid summer's night dream meets alice in wonderland....together with playing Everyone Trade Places (Clean Cup from Alice).
I would suggest hitting the thrift stores for cups and lots of little cakes and sweets. Watch alice in wonderland again. It will give you LOTS of ideas! Good luck!

Oh and kate i forgot to tell you, the kangaroo soup recipe was a joke, people do eat it over here, but i am not one of them!!
It would probably cost you a lot of money because it would be a "speciality" over there, but trust me it doesn't taste that great.  Smiley
I hope all the other recipes taste yummy though, i am going to try the salad one tommorow night!
Here's one of kates yummy recipes :

Root  Veg Salad
3 raw beetroot, 3 carrots, a couple of sticks of celery celery leaves, 1 little gem lettuce, a fennel bulb.
Shave the beetroot and carrot with a Y peeler finely slice the other ingredients.

Dressing: fresh chilli lemon juice, olive oil and fresh mint.
Blacken a chilli, to do this prick it with a knife to stop it popping then hold it over a flame of the gas hob with a metal skewer or tongs. Put it in a bowl and cover with cling film for about 15 minutes so it will steam easily. Deseed and chop and mix with other ingredients.

Here are my goodies!
I Can't believe how easy photobucket is!
Back to the recipes, there are heaps of them and they are laminated (trust me a BIG help in my kitchen),
They all co-ordinate, the box, the recipe cards and the Recipe notes book, (So Cute)  Oh and a box of stuffing mix, that's vegitarian so i can use it in our seafood free kitchen Smiley Every note has a little bit about where the recipe came from and why it is one of her favourites, Ohh and some yorkshire tea which my mum is going to love and a note to me. SOOOO much stuff and it all matches!
So lovely, thanks so much Kate.
