Welcome to the Bliss Weddings Blog.

Well a Big Hello to you, its lovely to see you.

I am Katie and since 2010 I have been Planning & Co-ordinating Weddings.

In February 2014 I put my planning skills to good use when I got married myself to my lovely husband Ben. We got married 10 years to the day since our journey began - so as you can imagine I had set myself a big big challenge but I did pull it off even if I do say so myself.

So after a little bit of time away I am now back here to share the delights of all things Wedding. Regular features will be Honeymoon Hotspot, Wedding Venues, Pop the Questions, Soppy Sundays, Real Weddings plus much more as the blog goes on.

AND I am planning on sharing my Wedding experience with you all too.

So enjoy, come back soon and why not get in touch blissweddings@outlook.com

Lovely Pretty Things: DIY Floral Hearts from 100 Layer Cake

Good morning lovely people. How are you today?

We bring you a new edition of Lovely Pretty Things and we have found a fabulous post featured on 100 Layer Cake recently. We do love 100 Layer Cake and here is our LPT for this Tuesday.

DIY Floral Heart

This gorgeous project by Nikki of Je Adore and The Scalloped Window was featured in both her daughter Immi's 1st birthday, and Rylie's boho 2nd birthday over on Cakelet. It would make such a beautiful addition to any feminine party, don't you think.


Faux flowers (Nikki recommends keeping them all in the same tones, as it really makes the number stand out, rather than a particular flower.)
Strong foam (You can find the foam at any craft store or floral supply store. Make sure it is at least 1" thick. Between 1-2 inches works best.)
Sharp serrated knife (A drywall knife works great.)
A cutout of your number, shape, or letter
5" of wire and ribbon to hang the finished piece (optional)


1. Tape you shape onto the foam. Using washi tape makes it extra cute!


2. With a sharpie trace the outline of your shape.


3. Begin cutting. It's easier to cut off chunks at a time.


4. Cut florals so that you have about 1" of stem.


5. Insert stems into foam. Nikki recommends starting from the outside and working your way in. It really helps define the outline of the shape at the start.


6. Mix up the shapes, textures, size and colors of the flowers, while keeping within the same tone or color family.


7. Display!

**Optional** With your wire, make a horse shoe shape. poke the wire through the foam and bend the ends over like a staple. The tuck under flowers. Loop a long ribbon through for hanging.


Fabulous isn't it! If you try this for your big day please do let us know, we would love to see the results.
