Instagram Monthly round up

3 Sep

Happy September lovely people!


What a busy August! How was yours? If you live in the UK like myself you must be feeling pretty chuffed about the gorgeous weather we have been experiencing – Thank you England!

I have loved August and looking back on my photos their has been so much going on! Two of my friends have gotten married and you will see a vintage inspired candy buffet I did for one of them. It didn’t really go to plan as the table provided was way too small and the immense wind meant I couldn’t display all my decorations, but the busyness of it all sort of goes with the vintage theme.

Plums. My lovely plums 🙂

Bottom right is a baby shower dessert table, which incidentally will be one of my last for a while (more on this later). The heart shortbread and cupcakes featured on the dessert table. I loved the little glitter heart cake toppers.

I discovered crazy jelly beans. Loads of different flavours and shapes – Tasstttttyyy!

Gold and white shredded paper, cute and crafty. New in the shop.

Wishing you a wonderful week xx

April Instagram Monthly Round Up

13 May

Just popping in to say HI! I’m a few days behind schedule in sharing my favourite Instagram photos for April. OK, if I am entirely honest they are my only photos from April (it’s been a busy month!).

We have had lots of new products arrive at The Sweet Hostess in April and we have been busy taking photos, creating descriptions and uploading to our website and eBay shop. Some of those products are our new mini milk bottles which you can see in our round up photo. How cute are they? We have sold hundreds in April and May and now completely sold out! More stock to arrive in next week…..

We also ran our first competition on facebook. After much research I actually discovered facebook do not allow you to run competitions or giveaways unless it is run through an official app (which of course costs money!!!), but I decided to run one anyway. Luckily they didn’t close down my page (I see loads of people run giveaways anyway!). We had a selection of colours available including the green and blue listed here!

And lastly was a photo taken of the amazing dessert from my birthday dinner. Banana macaroon and toffee popcorn. It was simply divine and such a treat!

Happy May xx


March Instagram monthly round up

31 Mar

Happy Easter folks! Hope you are all enjoying a leisurely and fab weekend. I have been so lucky to have some time off and have been enjoying some rest and relaxation with my boys.

A quick snapshot of my March Instagram photos doesn’t actually reflect the mood and vibe of March! I am not liking March with it’s depressing and gloomy weather. I am not normally this negative, but the weather has really been affecting my mood and I have had enough! We have the most glorious park lands nearby and I really miss going for my daily walks.

So my favourite March photos are……


So looking at the photos above it does give me hope for April. So I am saying a firm goodbye to March and I’m looking forward to welcoming the longer lighter evenings of April, the sunny mornings (?) and gorgeous spring flowers we have been missing out on.

Come on Spring. Let’s do this.


Instagram monthly round up

28 Feb

Can you believe it is the last day of February? Scary in terms of time going so quick, but exciting that Spring is on its way! February has been a month of highs and lows for me. Highs because I was at *home* in Melbourne seeing friends and family. My two babies were able to meet everyone including their Grandad and Uncle for the first time. The lows were coming back to England (in the nicest possible way). I love living here, but since having children it is so hard being away from family and friends. Luckily I have some AWESOME friends over here and my husband has a supportive family, so win win on that front.

Anyway back to Instagram! I have selected my 9 favourite images for the month of February and here they are……
