Baby Shower fun at the World of Wedgwood πŸ’™

Yesterday a group of lovely ladies and myself descended on the World of WedgwoodΒ for an afternoon of fun and tasty treats in celebration of my very soon to arrive, niece or nephew.

The Wedgwood Tea Room is within the world of Wedgwood just through the stunning Wedgwood flagship store. As it’s Spring the whole place was brimming with floral displays, which to be honest are Instagram heaven πŸ“·.

The whole afternoon was planned in secret so lovely Mum-to-be, Clare was blindfolded from the car park to the tea room and overcome with happy tears when she realised where she was and who she was with – special timesΒ πŸ’•

Much to the surprise of lots of the ladies joining us, who had never visited before, the tearoom itself is decorated delightfully. The wallpaper is based on the Wedgwood Hibiscus pattern and with the golds and blues of the rest of the decor is a real interior style statement.

The place was buzzing as the Sunday we had chosen was also the monthly Fine Food And Artisan Craft Fayre, which happens on the second Sunday of every month.

There were over 50 stalls offering local handmade goods and delicious treats. This was in addition to the fantastic Wedgwood Flagship store and the new Brand Junction store which stocks sister brands: Waterford, Royal Doulton and Royal Albert products. Shopping a plenty!

The Wedgwood Afternoon Tea itself is as quintessentially British as the beautiful china it’s served upon. Fresh finger sandwiches, scones and cakes are all served with a choice of teas and the option to add in some fizz if you so wish, of course.

After catching up and filling our happy faces with delicious treats it was time for the games to begin, organised amazingly by Mum-to-be’s little sister, Jessica.

What more could we want than an opportunity to chat away about impending baby cuddles over cakes and Prosecco. A perfect Sunday afternoon.Β πŸ‘Œ

Happy Snappy Mama πŸ“·πŸŒΈ

Happy Friday lovely people – hope you’ve had a good week…🌸

Friday Blossom

For this Mama it has been one seriously busy one, snap snapping away! After an amazing Easter weekend of fun (and far too much chocolate) my always busy social media manager job went into overdrive. With a short week, holiday planned next week and lots of deadlines looming it has been social media content creation central around here. Phewf – pass me the gin!

Travel Props

I manage the social media for 4 ceramic and crystal lifestyle brands. This week I’ve found myself surrounded by trays of product, props and delicious treats (all in the name of social media photography of course…!) at home and then part of an office move at work – crikey.

Indi-Rose helping

This is all fab and I LOVE my job – being able to plan, photograph, copy write, schedule and measure content from start to finish is ace. However there are days I do have the added fun of my little Social Media Assistant, my toddler, Indi-Rose. This week she has definitely been on hand to “assist” with my kitchen photoshoots in the evenings and on “our Wednesday”. Since returning to work from maternity in 2015 I have worked a 4 day week, so to keep a day mid-week where I know I’ll be spending it with my mini-me.

Indi Marmite Face

In recent months the job has got bigger and busier so my Wednesday with Indi-Rose has become my day working from home, just stick her in nursery I hear you cry…well I will but at the minute I’m still officially on my 4 day week contract so until that changes she’s staying with me. However throughout the challenges this week has flung at us, after many hours of organising and editing, I’m pleased with the results of “our” handy work. Here’s a sneaky peak of one of my images for a new Wedgwood collection …

Rococco Flowers tea squared

I’ve always loved photography and am a complete social media addict so I’m lucky to be able do a job where I get to get my creative juices flowing, can work from home from time to time and which I truly enjoy (and Indi seems to enjoy too, especially the macarons!)

Good vibes only! xxx ✌️
