Finally on Etsy!!!

I have some news and I’m so excited that I’m not going to blab about it much. I’m just going to say it. Remember a while ago I started another blog called Claire’s Party Supplies to showcase my handmade bridal accessories among a bunch of other party supplies. Well, I’ve finally opened an Etsy shop that carries these items, called Tropical Hues. Its a small start and I’m still in the process of listing items. I would really like for you to stop by and check it out and do tell your family and friends about it too. Your continued support has been a great source of encouragement and motivation for me. Thank you for being there and visiting and leaving such wonderful comments.

Don’t forget to stop by –

What I’ve been upto last month …

I haven’t been blogging too much during the last month. Here’s why – 
My husband’s sister got married last weekend and among the tonnes of things that needed to be done, here’s  the bouquet I made for her.

I also made the wedding cake with consisted of a 9″ Madeira cake and 18 mini cakes with the butterfly theme and to go with their theme colors – 

Since this is now done with, we’re back to business as usual. Look out for some fun treats to come.

Psst… I’ve also been working on a few crafts that I’m eager to share with you in a few days.

Some more bridal flowers

Here’s what I’ve been upto during the last couple of weeks. I had to whip up a few bridal flowers. There are two varieties of flowers, one is the starched satin variety and the other is made of a nylon stocking material. Take a peek at some of them here –

I made a ton of these little buggers and as a result have some really sore fingers, but nevertheless some really happy brides. I love when they appreciate the creations, it makes all the effort worth it.

On another note, I have a few very interesting, yummy posts lined up for the next few days. Stay tuned.

Bridal flowers

I’ve been busy … really busy. I haven’t been able to devote as much time as I’d have liked to cook, bake and blog. But I’ve been having fun working on my latest project. I just completed an order for some bridal flowers. Needless to say, I had some help from my very talented sister-in-law, Maria, who made completion of this last minute order possible. Here’s a peek at the stuff we made.

We made 1 of this bouquet –
