The venue was my mum's garden because it is bigger than mine and we felt that the greenery and flowers would make a lovely backdrop. Kooks and Shutterbug Sister tied scarves across the washing line and pinned them to the walls to create some shade and colour.
The girls also put scarves across my mum's garden swing and tied on the string of herats on a ribbon my children made.
I found these butterfly clips at home in different colours and Little Lady pinned them around the garden for me.
Sister-in-law organised a game where she had asked Kook's fiancé some questions and then asked the bride-to-be the same questions with a challenge to get the same answer. For each one she got wrong, she had to eat some gum. She got about two out of thirty right and ended up with a mouthful of gum. The answers were a lot of fun.
My favourite thing was all of the little girls mash'Allah - my youngest Darling, my little niece, my cousin, all three of whom are about the same age and got up to all sorts of mischief and also my newest little niece, Fashionista's little princess. I really enjoyed holding her and watching her nod off.
