‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there. The Petal & Feast girls were nestled all snug in their beds, while visions of sugar plums danced […]

Back at the end of April, I spent a lovely day with Jayne doing flowers for her daughter Fran’s wedding… Obviously where Jayne goes her camera is never far behind, and so I thought it about time I put some up on here.

One of the perks of running Petal & Feast has been meeting some lovely people, both couples and suppliers. Jayne Sacco – or Sacco Pants as we affectionately call her, is a wizz with her camera and she has been meaning to do a shoot with the kids for agessssss. Last weekend she popped up […]

It was a dark, wild and stormy evening as I hid under my duffle coat, jiggling about inside Hannah’s big old van which was trying it’s best to make it up the steepest, slipperiest hill I’d ever had the misfortune of needing to get up. Even Hannah seemed slightly nervous, which I knew meant it […]
